One of my favorite vegetables. I love the way the lighter colored inner stalks taste.

And anyone who doesn't like celery is, without a doubt, a coprophage.

I'm going to eat some celery now.  Fresh, crisp celery.

I'm glad the BBC finally had the courage to take a stand and report on this issue.  If there's one problem that western society faces with regards to its diet, it's far too many people eating vegetables.

Peanut butter placed on celery is peanut butter wasted.

/and chunky is the only true peanut butter
//but we just did that thread

PacManDreaming: And anyone who doesn't like celery is, without a doubt, a coprophage.


You know what destroys your whole theory? There's this really delicious new type of celery -- you haven't heard of it -- that only grows inside a weasel's colon while that weasel is inside a giant pumpkin which is growing inside an elephant's colon. The celery looks like it's got peanut butter on it already but you know that's not peanut butter. So there are people who love celery and eat feces.

I know this because I saw that new hipster poop celery ("Fecelery™") on an episode of "Dragons' Den".

I love celery. I eat it often. No gucky fillings needed. If I'm having a nice sammich, celery on the side is a great alternative to chips while still giving the crunch satisfaction.

Mmmmm... celery....

They're called the celery hearts and they are tasty.  Anyone who hates celery (on its own) should try them, they taste nothing like their larger components.

FYI -  An 8-inch stalk of celery contains approximately 6 calories. But the mere act of digesting said stalk burns more than 6 calories, resulting in a negative caloric intake.

Finally the long awaited celery thread. I feel both elated and nervous because it's been so long since we've had a celery thread I've forgotten what do.
 
2013-03-16 12:49:34 PM  
Ahh, celery. One of the only vegetables I really, really don't like. (It's still more tolerable than bell pepper, but only because it loses most of its flavor and all of its texture when cooked.)

Well, off to the grocery for cabbage and carrots!

/And possibly potatoes.
//And definitely corned beef.

Actually, it doesn't.  Real_Kibo made no statement about the feces consumption habits of people who like celery.  Real_Kibo only claims that a person who does not like celery eats da poo-poo.

Sit back.  Relax.  Revel in the crisp retorts and pithy comments.

It's perfect timing for me.  Making celery & cabbage soup.  It's in the crock pot.

Celery is the worst. Its only real use is as a component in a bouquet garnis, and there only because you remove the awful thing before you eat your soup.

Buffalo hummus. Take your plain hummus recipe, swap half the olive oil for melted butter, and use franks red hot instead of lemon juice.

In addition if you swap out the other healthy ingredients with unhealthy stuff, for instance replace the chickpeas with ground beef, it'd taste even better.

So whats wrong with replacing a few tablespoons of lemon juice with vinegar and cayanne? If your main source of vitamin C is the lemon juice in hummus... i think you may have bigger nutritional problems, And a few tablespoons of 33% saturated fat olive oil with a few of 66% saturated fat butter suddenly makes something akin to mainlining transfat?

FYI, even should you freeze your celery to maximize that negative caloric intake, you're still burning a mere handful of calories per day by eating all that celery, and you'll take six months or more to have burned off enough energy to lose a single pound of fat.

Unless the celery is replacing another high-calorie food that you'd have eaten instead, you've essentially achieved nothing.

Buying celery will make your pink underpants fall down in public.  Proven fact.

I always hated celery, especially raw. Found it I was allergic to it and especially celery seed. Kinda sucks. I still use it as seasoning but only if I cook the hell out of it to denature the proteins.

Watching the NCAA games some, they keep having these Applebee's commercials, "come try our new authentic nawlins recipes" and they show onion green and red pepper thrown together and I'm thinking, even from the commercials I can tell you're doing it wrong.
