April 24, 2012 – 240 days Until Baktun 12

Survivalist Tip:  Along with your healthy supply of fruits and vegetables, I recommend adding carrots to the mix.  Carrots are not indigenous to the Americas.  Europeans brought them over, which like horses, makes up for the typhoid they also brought.  First cultivated in Afghanistan, carrots were originally purple, white and yellow, but not orange.  Dutch growers developed the orange carrot in the 16th century.  Carrots are rich in carotenoids, an antioxidant that helps to combat cell damage.  They’re about 87% water and a single cup of raw carrots contains 52 calories.  Carrots keep for a long time, so you can stock up on them without much worry.  Don’t bother with baby carrots.  That’s like a baby bar of chocolate.  Are you kidding me?!  Carrots may not be good alongside chocolate, but they taste great either raw or cooked.  Besides, a well-aimed carrot can take out the eye of an intruder.  Just wash it thoroughly afterwards.
