Do you eat seasonal foods?
Speaking of which, I like celery which is rich in vitamins.
The taste is refreshing and it's easy to eat!
When did we start eating celery?
350 years of history until celery became popular in Japan
It was about 350 years ago that celery came from overseas. It is believed to have been brought in by Dutch ships.
It was named "Dutch Mitsuba".
I'm surprised to know that celery is a food from Europe because I thought that is Asian vegetable.
Celery has various kinds of nutrition besides vitamins as follows!
Calcium: prevention of osteoporosis / suppression of nerve stimulus
Beta-carotene: prevention of breast cancer / ovarian cancer / vision restoration / prevention of cataract
Potassium: prevention of high blood pressure/stroke
Dietary fiber: Improvement of constipation/prevention of lifestyle disease
After I read the explanation, I was surprised how rich in nutrition in celery is!
I had the image that celery only contains vitamins.
I think that celery can cover most of our health issues.
I should eat more celery when it is in season.
