I admit it. I love baby carrots. I have ever since I dieted three plus years ago and they were and are a staple of my diet. But I will admit it--I never really thought that much about where the baby carrots come from. I just sort of assumed they were carrots pulled up and packaged before reaching full vegetable maturity.
Well, that just shows you what you get for assuming. Cause, boy, was I ever wrong. USA Today has an article this morning about baby carrots
that I found fascinating. It's great reading and it breaks down some of the myths about this popular veggie.
