Orange Celery Juice with mint and lime
It’s Juicy Tuesday! – Celery. Not the most exciting veggie. No, not on its own, but a super vegetable (extremely healthy!) to mix with other tasty goods.
I use celery for juices more often than I use it for meals. If I use it for cooking, its for risotto. Celery gives the risotto a nice crunchy bite. It’s not exactly risotto time right not now, but juice-time: always.
