A Clean Sweep in Many Ways

This refreshingly delicious juice pairs great with a protein bar as a mid-morning snack.  Clean sweep combines carrots, celery, green grapes, and parsley (from Juices & Smoothies, p. 65). 

Some health benefits I learned about ... Celery
  • It's like Gatorade only better! The rich minerals in celery help replace lost electrolytes and rehydrate the body after a workout
  • It has super powers! That is, celery contains anti-cancer compounds, some of which actually help stop the growth of tumors
  • It helps you poop.  Celery is a natural laxative
  • It's cool.  On hot Summer days, celery helps normalize the body's temperature
  • It's on your side.  Eating celery everyday or consuming it as a juice will help curb cravings and help you lose or maintain a healthy weigh
