A proud member of the Apiaceae family, celery is a leafy green vegetable, which counts among its cousins carrots, coriander, cumin and parsley. Celery is a great addition to any healthy diet – low in calories and a good way to add bulk to dishes.
As well as being great for weight loss due to its very low calorie count, celery also offers several other health benefits. It is rich in vitamins A and K, helping to maintain a healthy immune system and a trouble-free bloodstream. It is a great source of dietary fibre as well, aiding with digestion and helping to prevent ailments such as diabetes and heart disease.
Celery can also be used to treat minor everyday complaints, such head and muscle aches and pains and can easily be incorporated into salads, stir-fries and stews; not to mention Bloody Marys!
