Celery is a vegetable that people seem to either love or hate – if you are in the latter group, you are missing out! A biennial plant, celery is in the same family as carrots, dill and fennel. Why should you add it to your meals? Celery:
- Is an excellent source of vitamins C and K, and its active compounds, pthalides, may help lower blood pressure.
- Has long been associated with dieting due to its low calorie count.
- Is rich in potassium and sodium – important in regulating fluid balance and stimulating urine production.
- Lends itself to soups, stews and stir-fries as well as salads or spread with natural peanut butter.
When choosing, always seek out organically grown celery, as pesticides are commonly used on conventionally grown varieties.
