Celery Leaves, A Nutrient Super Star

 

Stop throwing away the tops of your celery! Do you cut off the celery leaves and only use the sticks? Don't worry most people don't realize that is where most of the nutrients are. Celery leaves contain more calcium, iron, potassium, beta-carotene, and vitamin C than the stalks.

Celery helps regulate fluid balance  by stimulating urine production and rid the body of excess fluid.

Celery is also an antioxidant that enhances white blood cells and the immune system.

Great ways to use them: Use like parsley or add as a green into a salad.  Great for juicing and smoothies.
