    I like celery. Don't really eat that much that often but thinking more about adding it to my diet as an alternate snack.

    Antioxidants protect cells, blood vessels, and organs from oxidative damage.
    Celery contains vitamin C, beta carotene, and flavonoids, but there are at least 12 additional kinds of antioxidant nutrients found in a single stalk. It’s also a wonderful source of phytonutrients, which have been shown to reduce instances of inflammation in the digestive tract, cells, blood vessels, and organs.

    Chronic inflammation has been linked to many illnesses, including arthritis and osteoporosis. Celery and celery seeds have approximately 25 anti-inflammatory compounds that can offer protection against inflammation in the body.

    But these two alone make it seem like a good idea.

    My trick with celery is to peel it. Take off the stringy ridges, a little cut top or bottom of the stick and you can pull out a few strings. Three or four and voila, wonderful celery without the stringy bits sticking in your teeth.

    Celery and ranch dressing, mmmm.

    Healthy food that"s as convenient as junk food. What's not to like?
