Snacking is a favorite American past time. We snack to socialize. We snack because it’s what we do between meals whether we are hungry or not. Though often we are “hungry” because we didn’t get a satisfying meal earlier or perhaps we are really thirsty. In any case, if we are going to snack, we ought to be mindful of what we are consuming. A friend recently reintroduced me to celery. According to George Mateljan, author of the World’s Healthiest Foods, celery is one of them. It’s high in nutrient value with over 60 nutrients and low in calories (19 calories/cup). It’s high in fiber, making it a filling, satisfying food. You can eat it hot or cold; eat it by itself, or eat it with soft cheese, hummus or peanut butter. It can be stored for up to two weeks in the fridge and is available year ’round. With so many benefits, celery anyone?
