Celeriac is a root vegetable that is both delicious and extremely nutritious.
In fact, it can help prevent conditions such as Osteoporosis, Diabetes, and Heart Disease.
It can be eaten raw or cooked. I personally enjoy it as part of my staple vegetables. Just like onions, it turns ‘sweet’ when stir fried.
For a quick meal, I often gently heat coconut oil and unrefined salt, then simply add chopped onions, grated celeriac, and crushed garlic. Cooks up in about 10 to 15 minutes and with the addition of a protein source, its a quick and delicious meal in a bowl!
CELERIAC HEALTH BENEFITS:
Helps Build Strong Bones due to high Vitamin K.
Celeriac is rich in absorbable fiber which has shown to lower the risk of Diabetes Type 2.
Consuming foods high in vitamin C has been shown to lowers the risk of developing high blood pressure
I hope you make eating celeriac part of your ‘healthy diet strategy’ as I do!
Here is a recipe I’ve just created that incorporates the delicious flavor of celeriac with the creamy texture and health benefits of beans + herbs and spices to complete.
