I don’t care much for baby carrots anymore. I ate them nearly every day at lunch for a solid year. Pretty sure it was the longest year of my life. Have you ever chewed one of those baby carrots? It takes about 5 minutes per carrot. And I always seemed to pack at least 10. That must equal about 4 whole carrots. Those little guys are deceptively dense and far more compact than any normal carrot. And their shape—it’s just a little too perfect. My hands used to turn orange during that time. It all makes sense now. I was eating wayyyy too many carrots.
After a two year hiatus, I started buying whole carrots, peeling them, and chopping to a normal width. I like carrots again. I eat them with my lunch, and it only takes me 5 minutes total. I’m not sure why I’m telling you this. Maybe it’s for the person forcing themselves to eat dense carrots. Be set free! Or maybe I’ve been writing far too much over the last couple of days to have anything substantial to say.
