Truth be told, more often than not I use my vegetable scrub brush as opposed to my peeler. First, it’s quicker. But even more importantly to me, the skin of carrots, potatoes, beets, and other veggies have many nutrients and vitamins. My rule is that if I’m buying farm fresh or organic produce, I don’t peel. On the other hand, if you do not have access or the budget for organic, then it might be a good idea to peel certain vegetables and fruits.
