7 Reasons to Celery Juice and How To Get Started Celery Juicing Right Now
So I mentioned previously that celery is the superfood that no one is talking about. That was my own observation after researching all of celery’s nutritional facts and knowing that I pretty much never hear anyone mention that you should really eat your celery.

Fortunately, sugar spikes can occur via fruit, but is not likely to happen with celery!
