Carrots, high in beta-carotene, serves as antioxidants that slows down our aging cells. Top with a healing dressing of miso and sesame for a well-balanced and grounding dish perfect for January. Miso is high in protein, rich in vitamins and minerals and gives an earthy, salty flavor, while the sesame adds rich, nutty undertones and keeps our hearts healthy.
