:: Oh Carrots, how i love thee!!! ::


I eat alot of carrots. Alot. They don't taste very sweet to me but I found out this morning that they may be high in GI? I looked up glycemicindex.com just to be sure and raw carrots have an index of 16. I think that's low but I'm not entirely sure. Is it bad that I consume so many carrots? On average about 2 sticks a day. Carrots are really filling though... And i dont get hungry for hours after munching on it. So i feel my blood sugar is well moderated throughout the course of the day. Could it be possible that the same fruit/vege can have a different effect on different people's blood sugar level? I dont know!

And i digress, do you like my new apron?? I figured I deserve one since I cook so much in the kitchen now. $9.99 from anthropologie. Eagle eye strikes again.

I know eating too much carrots will make your palm turn yellowish .... Not sure what is the logic behind that. My SIL has yellowish palm which is the result of overdose of carrots when she is young.

haha my hands are still the same color and pee is still normal so i guess i am doing OK with regards to carrots and beet consumption :)

A carrot is still better than a cookie though.
