Lots of foods seem to be synonymous with summer. Melons are definitely one of those to me: from cantaloupe to honeydew to watermelon and more. So many good things about a sweet, juice-dripping-down-your-chin slice of melon. Yum!
Time to bring in some green for spring! With the white of winter, I enjoy talking about green produce this time of year. Celery is up for the role this month. (It helps, of course, that March is also National Celery Month.)
Nutritionally, a large stalk of celery contains 10 calories, 2g carbohydrate, 1g fiber, and small amounts of some vitamins and minerals, including potassium and sodium. Celery is not a significant source of fat or protein.
