If anyone had ever told me that a vegan hotdog made from a carrot could taste like a regular hot dog before I tried these, I would have told them they were crazy! Throw one of these in a bun, add ketchup and mustard, and you have yourself a seriously delicious vegan hot dog. I had this for dinner last night and I felt like a kid again. YUM! I also have some exciting news for you!
Benefits of A Vegan Hotdog Made With Carrots
My amazing acupuncturist, Phyllis Kung, of PK Acupuncture and Wellness and I are teaming up to bring some awesome nutrition info into your life! She is extremely knowledgeable about how foods play a huge role in healing and regulating the body as well as how they fit into Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Here are some cool facts about carrots according to TCM:
- Their sweet taste makes them both nourishing and neutral, meaning they are good for all body types
- They support spleen and stomach function
- They are alkaline-forming, which supports detoxification of intestines, stomach, and spleen
- Due to their high Vitamin A and silicon content, they are great anti-inflammatories for skin conditions (such as acne and skin lesions like chicken pox and measles) and mucous membrane conditions (such as digestive, respiratory, and urinary tract infections)
