Need an easy, satisfying but HEALTHY snack? Then this is for you! Carrots are not only savory-sweet, they’re also little nutrient powerhouses. Full of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants, you’re giving your body something to love with every bite.

And this Avocado Pesto Dipping Sauce? Just shut the front door. ‘Cause this stuff…is good. Like I smear it on anything kind of good.

Back to those carrots; I used rainbow carrots here just because I think they’re pretty! You can use any variety you’d like :)
