Tid Bit(e) Tuesday
Celery! I used to only eat celery with peanut butter on top (and thats still good btw) but I’ve grown to love it just straight up
- FIBER – In one cup of celery there are 5 grams of fiber and a whole lot of water!
- LOWER CHOLESTEROL- Celery contains a compound called 3-n-butylphthalide that has been shown to lower LDL and triglyceride levels (1)
- DIGESTIVE TRACT- Celery contains a type of ethanol extract that helps protect the lining of the digestive tract which keeps food particles inside the intestines and keeps the immune system outside the intestines
- NUTRIENT DENSE – Celery is mostly water so it is low calorie but high in antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals
