Carrots

Carrots are full of nutrition and one of the best foods for the thrift conscious.  Eat them raw, and eat them cooked.  Buy your carrots are fresh as possible, so they will taste better and last longer.  If the tops are off the carrots when you buy them, there is no way to tell how old they are.  Don't buy carrots in bags, and don't buy them without the green, leafy tops still attached.   Spend your frugal grocery budget on food rich in vitamins and of the best quality.
