It is National Nutrition Month, so I wanted to highlight one of my favorite veggies – the humble yet versatile carrot. There are some lingering myths about this orange vegetable, or are they myths. Take this short quiz and see if you know what is fact and what is fiction when it comes to carrots.

T/F: If you eat too many carrots your skin can turn a yellowish orange.

Your skin turns that color because Vitamin A (same with D, E and K)is a fat soluble vitamin. If you have to much you can't just pee it out, it stays in your adipose tissue.

I had a friend, who when she was pregnant with her second kid, was addicted to baby carrots. She ate them incessantly. Well when she gave birth, she SWEARS that the kid came out sort of orange & it took her a few weeks to shed the color. I thought it was hysterical :o)
