    Hi Beth,
    These all look great. If you buy organic carrots why do you need to peel them and for that matter, if they are peeled, why do you need to scrub them? Just wondering as I try to buy nice organic carrots that I can just scrub.

    Why do you peel the carrots? I always just scrub mine…thought that was the best way for nutrition!

    This is one of my FAVORITE AIP recipes! Amazing how much flavor the lemons add, and they (lemons) are also amazing to eat after roasting and a little bit “overdone.” My family all loves this recipe as well! Not always an easy feat when eating AIP.
