Celery

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

  1. FIBER – In one cup of celery there are 5 grams of fiber and a whole lot of water!
  2. LOWER CHOLESTEROL- Celery contains a compound called 3-n-butylphthalide that has been shown to lower LDL and triglyceride levels (1)
  3. 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
  4. NUTRIENT DENSE – Celery is mostly water so it is low calorie but high in antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals
