4. Carrots

There is a reason why Bugs Bunny was always munching on a carrot; he probably knew that most orange, yellow, and red vegetables are loaded with carotenoids.

Carotenoids are fat soluble compounds that are associated with a low risk of arthritis, asthma, and a very wide range of cancers. There are plenty of other vegetables with similar colors such as yellow bell peppers and butternut squash, it’s true, but none is as easy to eat or prepare as a carrot.

Try to eat about ½ cup of carrots each day for reap the optimum benefits.
