Cumin Lime Carrots

Looking for an easy side that will please everyone? These carrots are healthy, delicious, and take no time to whip up.

The cumin and lime flavors give carrots, one of my least favorite vegetables, a great flavor. I like to pair them with dishes like paleo street tacos & chili-seasoned skirt steak. Pair them with a Fed & Fit Skinny Margarita and call it a night.
