Personally I love celery and I have just started to experiment with it a lot more in my smoothies and even some sauces ( which I will be posting in the next few weeks) … Β This veggie is so low in calories for all the nutrients it provides… so make sure to include it in your salads!

celery is an excellent source of vitamin K, a key nutrient for bone and blood health, it also contains a good amount ofΒ vitamin A, folate, potassium, and vitamin C. Dietary fiber!

Tomatoes are probably my favorite thing in the world! if I do not have tomatoes in the house it is a sad day! I even planted my own tomato garden and had fresh tomatoes all summer long πŸ˜€ they tasted so amazing, I urge you to make your own tomato garden as well… you will love it!

Tomatoes will give you a smoother skin πŸ™‚ yes because of their Vitamine- C content . Research in theΒ American Journal of Clinical NutritionΒ links consuming plenty of vitamin C-rich foods with youthful skin AND having tomatoes can prevent your skin from getting wrinkled !

I wasn’t going to leave you without including seeds in here!!! so get your Flaxseeds on…

these seeds are a rich source of micronutrients, dietary fiber, manganese, vitamin B1, and the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, also known as ALA or omega-3. The seeds come from flax, one of the oldest fiber crops in the world – known to have been cultivated in ancient Egypt and China.

A tablespoon of flaxseeds gives you 2.3 grams of fiber… which lets admit we all need in our diet for good digestions! These super seeds also have an anti-inflammatory power which can get rid of or control your Acne and Asthma and they are also help prevent disease and cancer!
