Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, a compound your body changes into vitamin A, which helps keep your eyes healthy. Beta-carotene helps protect your eyes from the sun and lowers your chances of cataracts and other eye problems.

You can use white rice, brown rice, cous cous, or quinoa instead of wild rice.
