Everyone is RAVING about celery. Its out of stock on Fresh Direct, and Whole Food just increased it’s prices of this long, lean and mean power veggie!
So what’s the deal with it anyway?
Cleanses the liver
Full of electrolytes
Chocked full of fiber (when eaten whole)
Packed with magnesium
Now, the great debate… Is juicing ONLY celery any better than a good old fashion green juice?
The answer? Not necessarily… Celery is simply trendy right now. Remember when kale used to be all the rage?
Celery juice is now part of an online global movement, with supporters touting it as a ‘miracle’ tonic, a ‘saviour’, and a superfood for people with Celery is usually overlooked by superfood fanatics. But celebrities and social media have changed all that
Our society loves labels. “I’m keto.” “I do intermittent fasting.” “I’m paleo.” Enough already — live your life!
All of the benefits above, I could have said about a kale, spinach, cucumber, lemon and ginger juice as well. I think it’s safe to say if you’re starting your day with anything green, you are winning!
Making celery juice is actually really easy! You only need fresh celery stalks and a juicer. If you have a high-speed blender and a nut milk bag, you can make it that way too.
- Grab two bunches of celery and cut off the base and the top of the stalks.
- Wash them gently in a colander.
- Feed the celery through the feeding tube of your juicer.
- Serve the juice immediately and keep any leftovers in a tightly sealed jar in the fridge.
