Test Kitchen Treat: Celery Juice!

By: Canadian Living
I've been experiencing a bit of joint pain in my knee and our Food Director, Annabelle, suggested I try celery juice because it's great for relieving inflammation - and she swears by it. We went ahead and fired up the juicer in the Test Kitchen to juice an entire bunch of celery and drink up the goodness. I was a bit apprehensive at first because I've had bad experiences in the past with juicing vegetables (the foam, the icky combinations, the bitterness!), so when my glass was filled with the freshly juiced celery, I wasn't exactly jazzed about drinking it. To my surprise, it was pretty good. It tasted like the essence of celery - fresh and just a bit salty. I don't know if it was the juice or just the fact that I was being more careful with my knee, but it did feel better afterward. I don't have a juicer at home, so this weekend, I decided to throw a stalk of celery in my husband's morning smoothie and he loved it!
