Ingredient Notes: 

Carrots: Carrots have a great amount of fiber, and are loaded with vitamin A and beta-carotene. They are super healthy, flavorful, and versatile. Eat them raw, cook them, throw them in a soup, or any recipe!

Horseradish: A vegetable known for its pungent taste and odor. Horseradish can clean out your sinuses when you eat too much at once, but when used in moderation can be a great burst of flavor and spice to any dish. Did you know it has also actually been used for medicinal purposes thousands of years ago for its antibacterial and anticancer effects?
