Celery is one of my favorite snacks! My husband laughs anytime we order wings and I always ask for an extra side of celery. Something about it is so refreshing. I grew up believing that if you eat spicy food you should always pair it with “cooling” food to prevent an upset tummy. Hot wings + cool celery = the perfect pair.
When I heard everyone talking about celery juice at a recent skincare class I attended I was like—- um I’ll pass. It did not sound great. But, always down to try the latest skincare trend I gave it shot when I did the Live Beaming Cleanse. I have been hooked ever since. Every morning I start with a celery juice and then I sip a cup of hot water with lemon while I get Olivia’s breakfast ready. Then I do a quick ginger shot and latte as I leave the house.
Celery Juice: What is the Deal
Celery is thought to help produce more bile in the stomach. That means better waste and fat elimination. It is also thought to be anti-inflammatory and contains vitamin K and vitamin C. Anything that helps promote stomach and gut health will help improve the appearance of the skin. Plus, added vitamins are always a bonus to help improve skin appearance. I noticed my skin looked better each week. I felt better. My stomach is less bloated and I have fewer stomach issues since starting.
How I Added Celery Juice into My Morning Routine
I drink a glass every morning on an empty stomach as soon as I wake up. It is thought that drinking celery juice plain and on an empty stomach delivers the best result. I started with 8oz and now I do about 12-18oz each morning.
Juice 1 stalk of organic celery and drink straight away. Lol. YES, it is that easy!
