Haters gonna hate, and you shouldn’t carrot all.

Hope someone appreciated my punny joke. :)

Today’s change is substituting baby carrots for regular carrots in my morning smoothies. I finished reading “Eat Dirt” yesterday (awesome book, by the way), and one of the many things I learned is that baby carrots are not nearly as nutritious as regular ones. So there it is, no more eating babies!
