Eating Well: Carrot and Beet Slaw

<p>The low-calorie nutrients in this recipe make it a healthy variation to traditional calorie-rich coleslaw. Carrots are high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant, and are a good source of fiber. Beets are high in vitamin C and folic acid, a vitamin that is essential to the body’s production of red blood cells. <em>Serves 6.</em>
<p>• 4 large carrots<br />
• 2 small raw beets<br />
• 3 ounces lemon soy yogurt or nonfat yogurt<br />
• 3 tablespoons fresh apple juice<br />
• 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds</p>
<p>1. Grate the carrots and beets into a salad bowl. Toss with the yogurt and the apple juice. Top the slaw with the sesame seeds and serve.</p>
<p>2. Eat beets for vitamin C, carrots for beta-carotene to help your body resist cancer.</p>
