|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.
Here are a couple frugal carrot recipes.
