Special
6. Carrots vs. Celery
5 of 10
7 of 10

Both of these vegetables are high in fiber and low in calorie, but which is better for you? The significant difference between the two comes down to caloric value and vitamin A content. Celery is a healthy snack option, high in fiber with zero fat, but it has very little nutritional value. Carrots on the other hand, have a higher amount of calories (though not very much!) and have an extremely high vitamin A content. One serving of carrots will get you over 4x your recommended daily value of Vitamin A! So who wins? Nutritionally speaking, carrots win, because they are higher in nutrients. However, celery is still a healthy snack option too.
