Incorporate a rainbow of carrots - red, yellow, purple and white - into your daily meals and enjoy a wider range of healthful benefits.
Carrots are a valuable source of antioxidants as well as a host of other nutrients. Eating them has been found to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells and even slow down signs of aging. But in addition to the orange variety, carrots can actually be found in a rainbow of colours. In fact, historically, purple, yellow and red carrots were more commonly cultivated than orange ones. More importantly, each carrot hue offers different nutritional benefits. The lycopene in red carrots protects you from cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer; lutein, the xanthophylls carotenoid in yellow carrots decreases the risk of macular degeneration in your eyes; and the anthocyanins in purple carrots are especially powerful antioxidants.
SuperNature is one of the few places in Singapore where you can get purple carrots from Australia and rainbow carrots from the United States. Choose carrots that look firm and have smooth, unblemished skin. They should not look withered, or have discoloured or soft spots. Fresh-looking tops are a good indication of the freshness of the carrots. However, carrots are best stored refrigerated without the tops, to keep them moist. Enjoy them raw in salads, steamed then marinated, sautéed, oven-roasted or even in soups.
Organic purple and rainbow carrots are available at SuperNature Forum.
With an earthy, sweet flavour and long tuberous root, it comes as no surprise that the parsnip is closely related to the carrot. This fleshy tuber is chock-full of vitamins, essential minerals and dietary fibre.
A sweet alternative to the regular Russet or Yukon gold, this humble root lends itself to a plethora of different cooking methods. Great as a casserole dish or simply steamed, this spud is no dud when it comes to health-boosting benefits.
An apple cucumber gets its name because of its resemblance to a green apple. It has a crispy, juicy flesh, very sweet taste, and can be eaten without peeling the skin off. After it ripens, it develops soft prickles or spines that are white.
Black Knight carrots are readily distinguishable by their ink stained skin with variegations of orange and ivory blushing through from the root's core. The flesh's colour is a contrasting warm yellow.
Higher in beta carotene, and vitamins C and A than its green counterpart, red oak lettuce also provides a good proportion of fibre, folate and minerals. Enjoy this attractive, frilly leaf in salads, sandwiches and side dishes.
