Celery. Juice? I had no idea celery even had juice. I've always enjoyed snacking on celery and dipping it into my almond butter. Even making 'ants on a log' for my kiddos; you know spreading PB topped with raisins. But juice? That intrigued me. My ongoing journey to further support my health from hypothyroidism and hormonal imbalances led me to celery juice. Being a researcher my nature, I stumbled upon Anthony Williams (aka the medical medium), read his some of his books and decided why not try it? I mean celery is good for you, so its juice must be too.
I juice 4-6 stalks a week which last me approximately 4-6 days worth of juice. This will vary individually on how much and how often you choose to drink it as well as the size of the stalks and juicer you use. To juice a few days worth, always use organic celery with a masticating juicer like the one I have here, Omega Juicer so it will be safe to store up to 3-5 days in the refrigerator . This Omega juicer is my newest upgraded version. I love it because it's quite, super affordable, heavy duty, super easy to use, clean and store and keeps all the juice nutrients without oxidation. It also has multiple settings for juicing, sorbet, pasta making, nut butters, and all sorts of other recipe options. If you're new to juicing like I was three years ago, this affordable juicer is super duper easy to use and clean Hamilton Beach-affordable for the newbie juicer. It was my very first juicer and held up for over a year with daily use for juicing and was easy to use and clean. If you use this one, only make up 1-2 days worth at most for best nutrient benefits.
To start, cut the ends off the stalk, cut stalk in half and be sure to clean/rinse your celery regardless if it's organic (a lot of dirt and pests can be transferred). I love to use my produce spinner for ease
Store celery juice using a large glass jar with air tight cover and refrigerate immediately and pour as needed daily; or use multiple glass jar mugs with covers and simply grab a mug every morning.
For best results, celery juice should be consumed right away in the morning at least one half hour before meals.
Benefits of celery juice for me include extra vitamins and minerals, improved detoxification and elimination, increased energy, better sleep, improved digestion, clear skin, and improved immune system. You may experience looser stools and or more frequent stools early on as did I.
When I initially started, I juiced celery daily for almost a year straight. Now in my third year, I do it in increments skipping weeks/month at a time, typically no longer than a month before I start again. My consistency is about 1-2 weeks per month. I am pretty intuitive with my body and can tell when I need it.
Celery juicing and juicing in general is not a one and done or one size fits all. My research and experience with it has shown that my personal consistency, better nutritional choices, and physical activity is vital for best results. I also consume other juices like beet juice and add smoothies throughout my day for even more nutritional impact.
Do you juice celery or any other kind of juice? I'd love to hear your experiences.
