Quick Carrot Recipe Suggestions for Dieters

There are so many different directions that we can take the humble, beautiful carrot. Here are just a few that can be incorporated into a healthy weight loss plan:

1. Enjoyed in its natural state for snack or meal time.

2. In shredded form if we add a dollop of light salad dressing and a few golden raisins, we'll have a light, delicious carrot and raisin salad.

3. Cut the carrot into 'coins' and add to soup - or cut into bigger chunks for hearty stews. You can also use baby carrots.

4. Add reduced fat margarine to a non-stick skillet and melt. Add ground cinnamon and a bit of dark or light brown sugar along with drained cooked carrots for a delicious, sweet side dish.
