Too Simple to Believe...Celery Boats

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

At first I wasn't planning on sharing this because it's "too simple" but then I thought, it's too good to not share! Simple but so yummy, not to mention the quickness factor....it so fits what RawFoodForTruth is about. Quick and simple can be so delicious and nourishing.

My dear friend made these for me a few weeks ago when I visited him. We had these for dinner just before I had to hit the road and drive back home for 6 hours and they were so satisfying.... I've had them a couple of times since then so after all, it sounded like a "must-share". Here we go:

You Will Need...
Fresh, crisp celery sticks
Almond butter (or other nut butter)
Sea salt
Fenugreek (or other) sprouts

Cut up your sticks into desired bite-size pieces. 
Fill the little "boats with almond butter.
Sprinkle them with salt and top them with sprouts. 
That's it. Enjoy!

Almonds Are Among the Most Nutritious Nuts
They’re especially high in manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, copper, calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin E and riboflavin (vitamin B2) and very high in fiber. Their high mineral content helps build and maintain strong bones, while the fiber helps in the prevention of colon cancer. B vitamins and vitamin E (an antioxidant), along with calcium, magnesium, and zinc are very important brain foods. A lot of us are deficient in magnesium (do tight muscles or muscle spasms/quivers sound familiar?), which is not so hard to acquire, but it’s a water-soluble mineral so it’s important to replenish your body with adequate amounts on a daily basis! What foods are good sources of magnesium? Good news: nuts and dark chocolate are among the richest sources of this essential mineral! Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, which will help keep your heart healthy. Being high in protein and low in carbohydrates, these nuts are a really good snack choice for diabetics too.  

...And The Celery 
These crunchy sticks, normally dipped in peanut-butter, are high in vitamin K and electrolytes and are an excellent diuretic. Also known for having blood pressure lowering qualities, they make a nutritious snack.
