Carrots.
Crunchy. Sweet.
They help me write.
Thank you.

and I love how they resemble writing implements...

Miz, you're right. They do.

Dawn said...

Haha...Have to laugh at what Miz wrote! And isn't there a saying of a sort that they help with eyesight...
A handy veggie if you ask me;)

Leah J. Utas said...

The handiest, dawn. And yes, carrots are god for eyesight. Beta carotene 'n' all.

Yumm.

Leah J. Utas said...

Yep.

We had loads of carrots from our garden this summer. We love them, but, so do our dogs love the sweetness and the crunch.

Those look yummy. I think I'll go grab some out of my fridge now!

Reb said...

Carrots are my favourite raw veggie. Can't stand them cooked though! ~shudder~

Leah J. Utas said...

Redbush, I didn't know dogs ate carrots, but I'm a Dog Year so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Bag Lady, they are. Hope you enjoyed yours.

Reb, mine, too. But I can eat them cooked.

Sorry, they're not "perfect" or they'd taste like chocolate! But they are damn good for you and I'm glad they help you write--that's definitely an under-publicized nutritional benefit.

Hilary said...

An ideal snack, but Crabby sure does have a good point.

Leah J. Utas said...

You make a compelling point, Crabby.

Hilary, yes.

Frank Baron said...

I wish I felt the same way, Leah.

I'd be 25 pounds lighter....

Leah J. Utas said...

Frank, you could try to acquire the taste. If you try, then you'll find they're a lot like potato chips, if your imagination co-operates.

Most dogs like carrots; they're one of the recommended substitutes for dog biscuits for dogs with diet restrictions (allergy, kidney, all sorts of things.) My personal dogs have never been as enthusiastic about them as they are about broccoli and squash and (oh, joy!) bell pepper.

I don't like raw carrots nearly as much as cooked, myself. Asparagus is the only one I can think of that I actually prefer raw.
