Cooking with Caroline: Plant-Based Creamy Tahini Carrot Salad

Don't let the word "salad" give you pause. This week's creamy tahini carrot salad is a side dish PACKED with health benefits, such as:

Carrots: Beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A by your body. This helps with vision, skin, and is great for immunity!

Turmeric and black pepper: Turmeric’s main active ingredient is curcumin which is an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. Black pepper helps to activate curcumin by 2000%!

Cucumber: Cucumbers are filled to the brim with vitamin E, so save a few slices to put on your eyes!

Lemon: Lemon not only supports digestion, but is a great source of vitamin C which can keep you healthy and strong!

Garlic: Garlic is excellent for immunity, can reduce blood pressure, and is loaded with antioxidants!
