Raw cranberries have moderate levels of dietary fiber, vitamin C, and the essential dietary mineral, manganese, as well as other essential micronutrients in minor amounts. Fresh cranberries are hard and bitter and not typically eaten in this way. Because of this about 95 percent of cranberries are processed and used to make cranberry sauce and juice. Cranberries are also sold dried and sweetened. Cranberry juice is usually sweetened or blended with other fruit juices to reduce its natural tartness. Many cocktail recipes, including the Cosmopolitan, are made with cranberry juice. Cranberry juice is sweetened at one teaspoon of sugar per ounce, so cranberry juice cocktail is more highly sweetened than soda drinks that have been linked to obesity.

Cabbage is a great source of vitamin K and vitamin C and contains more than 20 percent of the Daily Value for each of these nutrients per serving. Cabbage is also a good source of vitamin B6 and folate. Cabbage is prepared and consumed in a variety of recipes depending where you are in the world. The simplest options include eating cabbage raw or steaming it, though many cabbage recipes pickle, stew, sautée or braise it. Pickling cabbage is one of the most popular ways of preserving the vegetable, creating recipes such as sauerkraut and kimchi, although kimchi is more often made from Chinese cabbage. Not only used for cranberry salad recipes, the British use cabbage for the recipe bubble and squeak. Carrots are one of the most popular vegetables that you will find. The carrot is a root vegetable, which is typically orange in colour, but can be purple, red, white, and yellow. The carrot has a crisp and crunchy texture when fresh. The most popular part of the carrot to eat is the taproot, although the greens are sometimes eaten as well. A carrot is a domesticated form of the wild carrot Daucus carota, which is native to Europe and southwestern Asia. You will find carrots 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 B-carotene, and lesser amounts of a-carotene, y-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin.
