Every time I buy celery, its typically for a recipe that I really only need two stalks for. For the last week I've had almost a full package of celery wilting away in the fridge. What better way to use it than to juice! But wait.... I don't have a juicer.
With all the hype about celery juice going around, I started to do a bit more research on my own. What are the benefits of this so called magic juice, and how does that even taste? After conducting thorough social media research I discovered the first source for it all. Anthony William. He practices medium medicine and gained publicity for his book about celery juice.
People have claimed that juicing has helped them to lose weight, have clearer skin, and even help with diagnosed medical problems. If you're not someone to have fruits and vegetables daily, but enjoy juicing, this could be a great way to incorporate those lovely nutrients into your diet! From what I found, drinking a cup of celery juice every morning before consuming anything else can clean the body, reduce inflammation, and gives an overall refreshing feeling to start the day.
Not to knock the juice down from its pedestal, but drinking the juice from eight stalks of celery is not necessarily better than eating them. Although the juice includes many sources of vitamins and minerals, you miss out of the fiber benefits by juicing and stripping the pulp. Long story short, eat (or drink) your veggies on the daily!
Now for the no juicer part. I only have a food processor at home (and so thankful that I do!) To make my morning juice work, I had to pulverize all of the ingredients in the processor first, then strain it through a wire strainer and press the juice out. It worked really well! It was just a little extra work. Here's my recipe for the morning.
