Carrots crush diabetes


Their brilliant orange color means they're bursting with carotenoids, antioxidants that may help prevent diabetes, suggests new research from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Among 4,500 people tested over 15 years, those with the highest levels of carotenoids in their blood had about half the diabetes risk of those with the least. Try this recipe, which makes four half-cup servings. Snack on them over the next 7 days and you'll meet your carotenoid goal for the week.


2 c baby carrots
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

Microwave carrots on high in I cup water for 5 minutes, then drain. Stir in honey and mustard while carrots are hot.
