Produce

 

 

Celery is often over looked at a nutritional food.

 

Celery as a Diet Snack
The calories used to chew and digest a piece of raw celery are equal to the calories that you gain from eating it. Celery will give you a sensation of fullness and the satisfaction of eating without any net calorie.

Other benefits of celery include:

  • Celery replaces lost electrolytes and rehydrates the body with its rich minerals.A great post-workout drink.
  • Celery contains at least eight families of anti-cancer compounds.  Among them are the acetylenics that have been shown to stop the growth of tumor cells. Phenolic acids which block the action of prostaglandins that encourage the growth of tumor cells.  And coumarins which help prevent free radicals from damaging cells.
  • Celery is high in fiber and helps to relieve constipation.
  • Healthy and normal kidney function by aiding elimination of toxins from the body. While eliminating toxins, it also prevents formation of kidney stones.
  • Lower blood pressure. A compound called phtalides help relax the muscle around arteries, dilating the vessels and allowing blood to flow normally. To be effective, drink the juice for one week, stop for three weeks, and start over.

The Amazing Banana

Bananas provide the most value to athletes compared to other fruits. Even a banana at breakfast is good in helping boost energy at the start of every day.

Here’s a nutritional chart percentage of the nutrients found in bananas.

  1. Vitamin B6 - This vitamin is needed by people who feel weak, irritated easily and have difficulty in sleeping.

  2. Potassium - Is known to regulate blood pressure and possibly reduce the chance of high blood pressure.

  3. Potassium - Enables muscles to contract and expand smoothly during exercises and reduces cramps.

  4. Carbohydrates - Help provide energy.

  5. Fiber - Helps maintain regular bowel movements.

  6. Bananas - Can be a great snack food.

  7. Bananas are often one of the first solid foods given to infants. Bananas contain 0% fat and are easy to digest.

  8. Yellow bananas are best eaten raw.

  9. Brown specked bananas - Are great for baking.

  10. The riper the banana, the sweeter it is. Reason is the starch turns to sugar.

  11. To preserve bananas, put them in the fridge. The peel will darken but the inside remains firm and delicious.

  12. To ripen bananas faster, put them a paper bag with an apple and a tomato.
