Betacarotene & me
When I was seventeen I went through a major carrot phase. I was obsessed with carrot sticks and Hidden Valley Ranch dip. Oh so good. I would sit on our living room floor in front of a huge square a newspaper, a paper grocery sack and the carrot peeler. I would peel an entire bag in one sitting while watching Degrassi High. I consumed so many carrots that I actually turned orange...like an Oompa Loompa. Seriously! It took about 4 days of no carrot eating to get back my glow in the dark pale palor. I still love carrots but now I eat them whole and fresh from our garden and I haven't turned orange since!
