PS: Eager Beavers may enjoy the following additional information:

BUYING TIPS:

  • Conventional celery is heavily sprayed with pesticides so choose organic as much as you can to minimize your dietary exposure to these toxic chemicals.
  • Choose firm, tightly formed bunches with crisp leaves. 
  • Look for light green, fresh looking celery bunches.

STORING TIPS:

  • Store celery in a plastic bag in the fridge or wash & dry & cut up into sticks and store in a tightly sealed food container.
  • Avoid freezing celery to prevent wilting, unless you plan to use it in the future in cooked recipes.
  • Unwashed celery stored in a plastic bag in the crisper compartment will keep up to 2 weeks.

SERVING IDEAS:

  • Juice fresh celery and enjoy on an empty stomach upon rising or after working out as an electrolyte replacement drink.
  • Enjoy celery with nut butters, dips and spreads.
  • Add celery to healthy stir-fried, soups and salads.
