Celery….super food?

03/06/2019

Ok, celery has always been known as the best diet food to eat as it takes more calories to eat it than it provides… Probably not true, but ask anyone over 35 and they will say the same!

However it now seems that celery is the next veggie to get some serious press.

Celery and mint morning smoothie:

Celery juice

 

 

 

 

 

  1. 3 *organic stems of celery washed
  2. Frozen spinach (two rounds)
  3. Coconut water 50ml
  4. Filter water 100ml
  5. Fresh mint rinsed (this helps the taste)

*choose organic as celery is one of the most chemically sprayed veggies along with cucumber and having so much regularly it would be a bit silly not to.

Blend until smooth, add in some ice and a paper straw to make it look even more beautiful!

What do you think, do this daily and see how you feel in a  two weeks.  Why not let me know if you notice a difference to your skin, pain or other symptoms like acid reflux.

A little bit about celery.  It is mainly water a great source of fibre. Celery’s main nutrients are vitamin K, folate or vitamin B9 and potassium, magnesium, calcium and a small amount of vitamin C and vitamin B6.

Other healthy components listed below may be responsible for its healing properties:

  1. Limonene
  2. selinene
  3. caffeic acid
  4. p-coumaric acid
  5. ferulic acid
  6. pthalides
  7. apigenin
  8. luteolin
  9. tannin
  10. saponin
  11. kaempferol

Adding celery to pasta sauces, risotto’s and other recipes is great too (best to chop is really small) and using it as spoons for dips and nut butters, but for a real hit try this daily:

 

Important: When using food as medicine it needs to taken regularly and in larger than normal amounts, it is therefore important to make sure that your medications or health conditions will not be impacted by a sudden increase in one particular vegetable or fruit: For example large amounts of licorice tea can increase blood pressure, so be sure to check with your health professional for any potential risks when using food as medicine.
