Celery (short stalks)
The good stuff
These crunchy green stalks are completely fat-free and keep you feeling fuller for longer thanks to the fact that they’re rich in fibre. Celery also contains electrolytes, which are essential for water absorption, healthy blood pressure and repairing of tissues and muscles.
How to eat?
Make sure to thoroughly wash your celery and try to buy organic whenever you can. Eat raw in salads or dip into cottage cheese or yoghurt. Also, use the leaves in soups or stews for added nutrition. Organic celery stalks have been celebrated as a “superfood” by the celery juice movement.
