Founder of Nutrition Rocks and leading nutritionist and registered Dietician Hala El-Shafie, says celery and radishes rock the skin you’re in!
Radishes and celery are both super low in calories and fat, and as they are 95% water, they make great snack potential in comparison to other popular healthy snacks like nuts, rice cakes and grapes.
Radishes deliver a welcome boost of Vitamin C and celery contains carotene. Both are very low in sugars, especially when compared to grapes, often eaten as a ‘healthy’ snack.
These natural beauties make fantastic portable snacks – their crunch factor makes them a great healthy option. They are low in energy and packed with nutritional properties, fibre, vitamins and minerals. And you can afford to dip them in some seriously tasty – and really healthy – dips with a completely clear conscience.
We love these dips – they really go well with radishes and celery:
Avocado, Lemon and Black pepper;
Tomato and Onion Salsa;
Peanut chilli; Tomato & Lemon; Greek Yoghurt, Black Pepper and Chive.
These super snacks are not only great for you but for the whole family too – get them in the kids’ lunch boxes, or put them in your snack pack! The crunch factor is brilliant for helping you feel satisfied, but also getting you to chew your food well and ensuring you stay fuller for longer.
Radishes and celery are great for a healthy lifestyle, but these crunchy crisp and versatile snacks are brilliant for your beauty regime too – what’s not to love? Choosing to snack on radishes and celery not only guarantees a fabulous amount of antioxidants – they’re packed with Vitamin C, Potassium and Iron which is great for skin, but you also get a super dose of folate.
Celery has long been regarded as an ideal food for those trying to manage their weight due to its really high water content, however it’s also a really good source of potassium and high in calcium too – which is important for healthy bones, blood pressure and nerve function. Don’t forget the leaves either and the darker the better as they contain carotene and more minerals and Vitamin C than the paler leaves.
Hala says, “Radishes are packed full of vitamins and minerals and super heavy on Vitamin C making them a beauty conscious girl’s best friend – if it’s gorgeous skin and a healthy body you’re after, you need to get these pink beauties thrown into your beauty food regime!”
