Bouquet of Celery

     How often have you bought Celery with the best of intentions, only for it to go soft before you end up using it !!!  GRRRRR ...  Did you know that celery has so few calories and so much roughage that you actually BURN calories by the time it is thoroughly digested !?  Its true !!!  I learned it in 7th grade science class!!! I was a little pudgy then  and I remember thinking that if I only ate celery all day I would actually be in the negative calories by the time I went to sleep every night ... how cool would that be !!!???  That get thin quick plan lasted all of a few hours ... (proven by my yearbook picture) :/
     So take advantage of the great taste, flavor and texture of celery by cleaning it when you first bring it home! Make a beautiful display in the fridge by putting it in a glass filled with water and it should stay crisp all week !!!  This inviting arrangement will surely temp the next visitor who opens the refrigerator doors~ see ya later celery  !!!  Not to mention, there are so many additions available to turn celery into the perfect healthy snack !!!  Laughing Cow Cheese is a great pairing, as well as Light Ranch or Peanut Butter ( maybe even throw a few almonds in the mix if you want to take a walk on the wild side ... ;)  Enjoy the refreshing taste of  Celery plain or with a mate ~ Either way you wont be sorry !!!
