07 Apr Why I Drink Celery Juice Every Single Day & What Juicer I Use
I am sure you have heard of celery juice!!! Popularized by Anthony William, aka The Medical Medium, celery juice is poppin’ all over Instagram and the internet. Entire Instagram accounts were created for it, along with hashtag challenges, books, podcasts, and more. I 100% believe in the power of celery juice, and it has healed me in many ways.
The Nutritional Value of Celery
First of all, celery is such a fantastic vegetable to consume in general! Celery is high in:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin K
Celery is mostly water and has been a favorite in detox circles for decades. It is naturally hydrating & high in fiber when eaten solid.
What About Juicing It?
Some, like The Medical Medium, insist that the best way is to drink celery juice, on its own without any other green juices or fruits, first thing in the morning! That is exactly how I drink it! Even though dietary fiber in celery has its own benefits, juicing it makes it far easier to get more nutrients in a reduced quantity. Without the fiber to fill us up, and with the easy digestibility of liquid, the many vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes are quickly absorbed by the body!
How celery juice has personally helped me:
- digestion issues
- daily mineral content
What Juicer Do I Use?
I DRINK CELERY JUICE EVERY MORNING and I use a Tribest Greenstar juicer. It is a total investment, but I juice 1-2 times a day so it is worth it! This juicer is by far the best juicer I have ever owned, and the juice tastes incredible since it is cold-pressed. It is night and day compared to our other thrifted juicers, and I rarely go out to buy juices because I make my own daily. WORTH IT!
Before I bought the Greenstar, I thrifted a few juicers… but I kept having the same problems! When extracting the juice from the produce, the juice pulp would come out wet. This meant that the juicing machine was not extracting all of the juice from the fruits and veggies which wastes A LOT. Even though I compost and reused the pulp, I wanted more juice extracted. More juice extracted = less produce needed for a 16oz juice= saving money. So I invested in a Greenstar and now the juice comes out perfect, and the pulp comes out pretty dry. Less compost = less food waste = happy Carly!!!!!
