An extract from my book

Staying Young & Healthy

Let’s move on to another one of my all time favourite snacks, carrots. They are sweet, crunchy and full of the stuff that keeps you looking young!!
Yes Young!!
It is a powerful anti oxidant and its anti ageing, which helps to keep the skin protected against sun damage and wrinkles.
In fact carrots reverse the effect of sun damage on the skin. Carrot juice has been found to have considerably less benefits than actually eating carrots themselves. In addition carrots help you lose weight because your body uses more calories digesting it than it provides.
They contain a large amount of beta-carotene, which gives it its orange colour.
