With all the Thanksgiving goodies I’ve been posting lately, I figured it was time to take a break from all that comfort food and share a side dish that didn’t involve any kind of carbs or cheese. Although, carbs and cheese are probably the two greatest things in the world.

Still, these baby carrots come to a close second.

No, but really, with all the heavy potato dishes on your Thanksgiving table this year, these baby carrots really need to make an appearance as well. Baby carrots are a nutrition powerhouse, providing over 15 essential vitaminsย and minerals that are important for good health. So yes, although fat pants are required for Thanksgiving, it doesn’t hurt to add in some healthy vitamins along your way, especially when they’re glazed in honey.
