Today’s kitchen tip: saving celery. Celery is a super handy Fuel Pull snack paired with some laughing cow light cheese, or a yummy S snack paired with peanut butter. Ever wondered how to keep it nice and crisp in the fridge after cutting it into sticks? It’s SUPER easy. Simply drop all of your celery sticks into a glass jar, and fill with clean fresh water. It keeps them super cold & crisp.
And all of the leaves and base? You can toss those into a freezer baggie and stash in the fridge…feel free to add nutrient rich onion peels & ends, and other veggie bits, and use these otherwise wasted veggies to flavor broth & stock.
One of my FAVORITE uses for celery sticks when I had a teething baby was to let them gnaw on a cold celery stick. The texture is really soothing, and the strings keep them from being able to get much of a chunk off at once. My little teethy babies loved it!
