It’s not just for wings. That’s right, celery is way more versatile and incredibly good for you. Besides it being low in calories, it yearns to be crunched…so it takes longer to eat. What else do I love about it? It’s loaded with good stuff:
Vitamins B3, C, & E
What does this mean?
It’s a perfect snack (as a crudite) because it is super low in calories. When in dishes it adds a sliver of salinity (so you can skip the salt). This means more hydration for you. Celery also helps the growth of red blood cells and removes waste from the body. I’s day it’s a win.

Eat it in the summer to cool off.
