CELERY: The crunchy vegetable’s leading claim to fame is the presence of active compounds called phthalides, which help relax muscles around the arteries and allow blood vessels to dilate, eventually lowering blood pressure. Celery’s stalks are also high in potassium (one cup provides eight percent of our daily requirement) and provide two grams of fiber. From a calorie perspective, one cup has only 16 calories (less than a piece of gum). Celery is also a good source of vitamin B and contains luteolin, which works to decrease inflammation in the brain that occurs with aging.
Here is a link to some recipes and within the page is one for a walnut cream cheese spread that I like to put on celery.
