The great thing about celery is that it allows you to eat like crap and still feel good about yourself, because, you know, you ate something green with it. Two common examples are eating celery with buffalo wings and eating celery with peanut butter or cream cheese and raisins on top (often fondly referred to as “ants on a log”).
The scary thing about celery is that the calories you burn chewing and digesting it are roughly equal to the calories actually in celery. This makes it a popular food with weight loss fanatics, sorority girls, and Kiera Knightly. One sorority girl I talked to said celery dipped in (equally low-calorie) salsa was a common snack at the ol’ Delta Gamma house.
What type of celery eater are you, So Good readers? Do you, like most Americans, pair the green sticks with something fat-laden like buffalo wings or peanut butter? Or do you see celery’s low calories and high dietary fiber as a good way to get healthy and skinny? Eat it plain? Not at all?
