Many people eat celery to fill themselves up and lose weight. But celery is actually a superfood. Yes, celery has practically no calories, a stalk has just 6 calories, but it’s more than just the lo-cal factor that makes celery so great. Celery is full of antioxidants, and not just the typical antioxidants, it has phenolic antioxidants which act as anti-inflammatories. 1 cup of celery has 33% of your daily dose of Vitamin K, which is very great for your bones. Celery has a distinct taste, but in a smoothie or a juice, it’s delicious. Mix celery with pineapple, grapes, lemon, and kale for a delicious and very healthy juice.
