Most people know that celery is a good healthy snack because it is very low in calories and can help satisfy cravings for things that crunch.  But there are several other reasons to celebrate this stalky vegetable this month.  It is full of anti-oxidants and steaming doesn’t seem to affect these healthy compounds in celery.  They are also powerful inflammation fighters, especially in the digestive tract.

For the freshest celery, choose an intact bulb that has stalks that snap when you pull them away from the bulb.  The bulb should be compact and all the stalks should look and feel firm and crisp.  Avoid any celery with yellow, brown, or black patches or yellowing leaves.  Research indicates that celery holds its nutritional content for about 5-7 days if it is stored in the refrigerator and it should be cut just prior to eating for the maximum nutritional benefit.

Celery is one of the vegetables of the month for August which means it is a great time to try out some new ways to eat this underutilized veggie.
