Transcript: Carrots vs. Baby Carrots
Carrots, or the same weight in baby carrots? Does the smaller is better rule for grapes work with carrots? How many say regular carrots are healthier? How many say baby carrots??? Sorry. Regular carrots are actually smaller. “Baby” carrots are just mechanically whittled from monster carrots.
Let’s try a three-way. Which is healthier—iceberg lettuce, Boston lettuce, or red leaf lettuce? Hmm… How many say iceberg??? How many say green leaf lettuce??? How many say red leaf? ?? And the winner is red leaf. Those who said green leaf please sit down and those who said iceberg definitely sit down.
Which is healthier—red onions, white onions, or yellow onions? How many say red??? How many say white??? And how many say yellow??? Anyone voting white or yellow, please… sit down. Look at this! I don’t want to see anyone ever buying white onions ever again. If you have a choice, always buy red—off the charts in terms of phytonutrient flavenol content.
