This is another avenue for veggies to be overwhelmed with health. But I'm just curious, I'm into this raw carrots thing because according to studies, eating raw is better. Hmmm, anyway, no matter the style, the most important thing is...health is always at the forefront. ;)

I couldn't agree more. What other foods, veggies do you eat raw?
