Bugs Bunny was clearly on to something.

The only mistake this iconic character made was to eat carrots raw.

We’re not against this practice, of course, but there are far more interesting ways to include carrots with your next meal.

Just consider the following healthy recipes to see what we mean…

  1. Roasted Carrot Ginger Soup Recipe
    • Roasted Carrot Ginger Soup Photo
    • Roast carrot, chili pepper and ginger soup is a great way to bridge the gap between winter and spring. It’s warm and comforting, so it’s perfect for a chilly night, but its bright, vegetal flavor that won’t leave you feeling sluggish or weighed down. It’s also low-calorie and vegan! I started culinary school last month …
  2. Carrot Ginger Soup Recipe

    • Certain foods are so well-matched, I’m convinced they somehow conspire through the soil in order to coordinate how to perfectly complement each other. Carrots and ginger are that way. The sweet, subtle flavor of carrots is perfectly offset by the creamy heat of ginger, making this an all-star combination for all sorts of foods. From …
  3. Vegetable Pot Pie Recipe

    • If this isn’t soup weather, then I don’t know much about the weather.  I’ve been curling up with bowl after bowl of comforting soup lately.  My favorite soups are usually vegetarian with a side of warm bread dripping with butter. I love a crispy pretzel roll on the side of my soup, or even a …
  4. Spring Vegetable Pad Thai Recipe
    • Spring Vegetable Pad Thai Photo
    • The first time I tried Pad Thai, I was on vacation with a friend in Hawaii. I didn’t know anything about Thai food, all I knew was I was hungry and it was feeding time. I dove right in to the Pad Thai and fell in love straight away. For the longest time after that …
  5. Homemade Hamburger Helper Recipe

    • This Homemade Hamburger Helper recipe is one that my mother started making long before making homemade versions of processed foods was en vogue. I suppose this is a sign that looking for ways to remake childhood favorite foods has always been in the stars for me. Growing up, we called this “Chili Mac”. My dad …
  6. Gluten Free Fried Rice Recipe

    • When you begin the gluten free journey, you immediately realize that some of your favorite foods are no longer safe to eat. One of my favorites is Asian food. The majority of these foods use gluten in the soy sauce, not to mention the breading for the meats as well. It was a sad day …

    • Mother’s Day is coming, you guys! Mother’s Day is possibly my favorite holiday of the year. I wake up every Mother’s Day morning eager with excitement, soaking up sloppy kiddo kisses and crayon-drawn cards. My husband always picks up donuts for breakfast and after heading to church, we spend the afternoon relaxing while I overdose on toddler snuggles. …
  8. Paleo Carrot Cake Cookies Recipe

    • I feel like we all have that one food we absolutely can’t pass up if it’s in front of us on the table or on the menu at a restaurant. For my husband, it’s apple pie or crisp. For my brother, lobster ravioli (weird, I know). Oddly, I have no idea what my parents’ would be but I can …
  9. Carrot Casserole Recipe

    • I was compensated by Nielsen-Massey Vanillas for my time in developing this recipe and post. All opinions are my own. Have you started thinking about the holidays yet? I cannot even believe how fast the year has gone and I feel like fall totally snuck up on me! I had big plans to be super organized and have my …

    • How is it November already? I feel like summer has barely ended and here, I find my thoughts quickly turning to thoughts of the holidays. The holidays! Well ready or not, here they come! They may be quickly sneaking up on me but I am so ready. I love Thanksgiving, Christmas and all the holidays during these next few months that …
  11. Mashed Carrots and Turnips Recipe
    • Mashed Carrots and Turnips Image
    • Thanksgiving dinner, or any turkey dinner for that matter, is one of those things that everyone has their traditional side dishes for. Now, I’m not one to have a problem with changing things up to try something different – in fact there was almost a revolt one year when I decided to try a different stuffing recipe rather then …
  12. One Pan Honey Roasted Turkey and Vegetables Recipe
    • One Pan Honey Roasted Turkey and Vegetables Photo
    • Today, I’m sharing one of my new favorite ways to cook. The entire meal is cooked on one sheet pan. Have you heard of this new craze? Instead of cooking all the contents in one pot, we’ve now moved on to a pan, and I love it just as much as the one pot method. …
  13. Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies Recipe
    • Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies Photo
    • The world after the holidays is a cold and forgiving place. Gone are the cookie trays and buttery bundt cakes covered in frosting. Hot cheesey dips and hot chocolate filled with marshmallows? Not a thing. Post-holiday people are busy putting away the tree and stuffed snowmen, scanning the sale ads for a new elliptical, and planning their new year diets. It’s …
  14. Zucchini Carrot Muffins Recipe
    • Zucchini Carrot Muffins Photo
    • Does anyone else have a veggie-hating child? I would assume that I’m not the only one, it seems to be a fairly common problem. My solution? Hide that healthiness in some cute little carrot zucchini muffins that they won’t be able to resist. Doesn’t always work, I’ll admit, but sometimes! Worth a try, at the very least. …
  15. BBQ Chicken Summer Rolls Recipe
    • BBQ Chicken Summer Rolls Photo
    • It’s a roll-able, dunk-able ASIAN INVASION. In the most perfectly smoky-sweet and crunchy-fresh veggies kind of way. I would like to introduce you to your face’s newest, most best-est friend ever. Say “hello” to BBQ chicken summer rolls that are BURSTING at the seams with tender-crisp peppers, roasty-charred corn, zesty, JUICY lime and sweet pineapple. …
  16. One Pot Chicken Vegetable Skillet Recipe
    • One Pot Chicken Vegetable Skillet Photo
    • Today, I’m sharing one of my new favorite go-to one pot weeknight meal. The key to this one pot chicken vegetable skillet is a very large oven-safe skillet. I used my favorite OXO skillet since it’s large and holds a lot of food, plus it’s oven-safe, which is the key to this recipe. I loved using the whole baby …
  17. Roasted Vegetable Hummus Recipe
    • Roasted Vegetable Hummus Photo
    • Isn’t hummus the best snack? Anytime you can whip up a tasty dip in a matter of minutes it’s great, but hummus is also healthy. Plus, it works well as a snack, as lunch, to throw into a sandwich, and there are so many flavour options! Doesn’t get much better than that. Plus, my veggie hating preschooler likes it. That, my friends, …
