Baby carrots

I’m a big fan of baby carrots because all the work is done for you. They’re a no-fuss, no-prep veggie that makes for easy, low-cal snacking (and a popular lunch-box stuffer in the Bauer house). One cup is just 50 calories and brimming with beta-carotene, an antioxidant that keeps your complexion looking fresh and radiant. Grab baby carrots right out of the bag for instant munching, or dunk in low-fat ranch dressing or hummus for a better-for-you version of chips and dip.
