Setting mini goals and deadlines based on upcoming events is motivating.
I like to dangle carrots in front of me to keep me going in the right direction. Good carrots for me are, upcoming social events, like family reunions and weddings. Sometimes it's just knowing I'm going to see someone I don't see very often. Hope it helps you too!

To remove the acid from spaghetti sauce, simmer on the stove and put a big carrot in there. It will soak up the acid perfectly! (My mom taught me this when she made her sauce from scratch, but it works for pre-made sauces, too.)
Use a regular carrot...not baby carrots.
Carrots help nourish cells that have been starved of nutrients which result in ulcers. Carrot juice is diuretic and helps to eliminate excess fluids from the body so its anti-inflammatory effects do help reduce arthritis, rheumatism, gout and other inflammations. Studies show that adding one carrot per day in our diet significantly reduces cancer risks. Try carrot slaw, matchstick carrots & cottage Cheese, stemed or raw carrots, addon to a salad, carrot soup, endless possibilites!
