The carrot is a root vegetable, which is usually orange in colour, though can be purple, red, white, and yellow. It has a crisp texture when fresh. The most commonly eaten part of a carrot is a taproot, although the greens are sometimes eaten as well. It is a domesticated form of the wild carrot Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. The domestic carrot has been selectively bred for its greatly enlarged and more palatable, less woody-textured edible taproot. Carrots are widely used in many cuisines, especially in the preparation of salads, and carrot salads are a tradition in many regional cuisines. The carrot gets its bright orange colour from β-carotene, and lesser amounts of α-carotene, γ-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin.
Broccoli is a vegetable in the cabbage family whose edible green flowerhead is eaten. Broccoli is high in vitamin C and dietary fiber. Broccoli also contains several nutrients with strong anti cancer properties, such as diindolylmethane and small amounts of selenium.
