Oh, and, they are an aphrodisiac too. And, if that does not motivate you, these sweet root veggies also contain a plethora of other vitamins like vitamin A, B, C, E, K and the minerals potassium, folic acid, manganese, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphor, selenium, zinc, sodium, copper, and iodine.

    I was reading your recipe for Up beat beet juice and can’t imagine putting a whole STALK of celery in that drink. I can imagine 2 or 3 RIBS of celery. Is that what you mean? RIBS and NOT STALK!!

      Joanne,

      Thank you for seeking clarification. Celery lingo can get tricky. I refer to celery as either a bunch or a stalk, a stalk being one piece not the entire thing.

      Thank you
      Christina
