Walking Tip, Class, Celery, & Bugs on Produce

by Kristen Suzanne in celery

Today’s blog post is a bit random, but I had a mix of things to share… so here we go!

Looking for new walking scenery? Tired of your usual path? Want some inspiration? Then check out this cool site here. Just type in your address and see the different walking options that surround you. It’s really great!

Raw Breakfast-in-Bed is my next class – Sept. 27 at Whole Foods. The class is already filling up so if you’re interested in joining us for delicious raw vegan food and a really FUN time, then reserve your seat now by registering here. (This is one of my favorite classes!)

Celery. I thought I’d shed some love on celery because it’s usually in my Plant Blood recipes and definitely worthy of praise. When you put celery in your Plant Blood, then you’re getting all kinds of vitamins and minerals (vitamin A – the darker the green, the higher the amount; vitamins C, B1, B2, and B6; calcium; magnesium; iron; phosphorous; fiber; folate; manganese; potassium & sodium – important for regulating fluid balance). Overall, celery is also shown to help lower cholesterol and may be useful in preventing cancer. I’ve also read that celery has a reputation for being an aphrodisiac. hhmmm…. any of you find this to be true? ;)

Here are two of my favorite Plant Blood combinations:
1. celery, carrot

2. celery, cucumber, zucchini, kale

And, speaking of fresh produce for Plant Blood… I wanted to talk about bugs. There are times that I find a bug here and there on my produce. Now, I’m not typically a bug huggin’ gal. I pretty much freak out at the site of most of them (you know the kind I’m talking about – creepy crawlies – eeeeek!). BUT, when I see a bug on my organic produce, I can’t help but feel a little relief because that means my produce is really free of pesticides. For that, I can celebrate bugs.

Update! I just checked out my recipes in VegNews magazine… I’m totally stoked to be a two-time winner. Whoo-hoo! Happy dance going on right now!
