When I first got introduced to juicing, the celery juice craze was at an all-time high. Bloggers, Podcasters, YouTubers, and Naturalists couldn’t stop raving about juicing celery. It literally sounded like the cure to “almost” everything lol. That’s when I started wondering if I even consume celery on a daily or weekly basis. The answer was no, heck no! That triggered my memory of the funniest celery joke of all time. Being something around the lines of “celery taste like negative calories”. It’s true, it’s not an easy vegetable to consume and like most of us, I too tried to avoid eating celery.

Again celery was the top vegetables to consume to increase my overall health and thyroid levels. So, why not give it shot right?
