Celery is a vegetable with many health benifits & myths surrounding it. There is a TON of Vitamin K in Celery, it will hold many of its nutritional values when cooked, it helps with your digestive tract, and supports cardiovascular health. Additionally celery helps with weight loss because of the amount of “dietary bulk” you are getting from it – few calories for much food
March is (also) National Peanut Month (peanut butter is made from peanuts – hence the use of peanut butter in this post).
Peanut Butter may be relatively high in fats, but they are all natural and has a wide range of other nutrients filling its container. Peanut Butter is a great source of proteins, so even those who do not eat animal proteins can (and should) enjoy lots of this stuff (unless they are one of the many people who are allergic to nuts). Another interesting fact: the patent for Peanut Butter was obtained by a Canadian in the late 1800s and Peanuts are a native food to the Americas.
SO; as we can see… the ingredients to today’s posts are amazingly good for you!
I LOVE snacks. My waist likes healthy snacks! Some days I crave something sweet as a quick snack, but many days I am craving something crunchy and salty. Celery is Crunchy. Peanut Butter has just enough sweetness with a depth of flavor. Peanut Butter spread across a piece of Celery may be the perfect snack! You are getting healthy nutrients, it is easy to make (come on, you could even skip the knife if you need to dig right in).
Recipe… seriously, do we even need this!?
- 3 stalks Celery
- ¼ Cup Peanut Butter
- Wash, dry & cut in half length-wise the Celery. Spread Peanut Butter inside (or dunk)
