- Carrots are naturally sweet, making them an excellent vegetable to include in a kid’s smoothie. They are high in fibre and carotenoids. But can they cause you to see in the dark? Or was that just a ploy to get us, as children ourselves, to eat up all our carrots? Well, there is some truth in it. They contain a lot of Vitamin A, which helps you to produce rhodopsin. Rhodopsin is a purple pigment that your eyes need to see in dim light. So, although you won’t have quite the superpowers of night vision that you were led to believe, you will be able to see in some lights.
- Ginger add a lovely warming zing to a soup dish, but ginger is also well known for its incredible Nutrition benefits. It is full of nutrients that are very beneficial for your body and brain. It is also particularly great for unsettled stomachs. Ginger is a known natural remedy for colds and flu, with powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
