Ever since I showed my celery juice morning routine on my stories a few weeks ago I have received a lot of questions on why I do it and if I like it. So here is a post to answer everything I’ve been questioned about.

Why did I start? I started doing this because I saw the trend pop up on my Instagram while following other bloggers. I was a tad skeptical at first, but my stomach had been bothering me for a while at that point, so I figured I’d try it out. I’ve now been having celery juice every single morning on an empty stomach for a month and it has made a HUGE difference in my digestion. I no longer have indigestion after eating, I love cheese and typically my stomach is upset after eating it, but not anymore and I don’t bloat anywhere near as much as I used to. It’s also weirdly filling in the mornings so I don’t typically eat till noon and can stay within my 8-hour eating timeframe which is super important to me.
How do I do it? Every night, I cut up my celery into small pieces, place it in some Snapware and store it in the fridge until morning. I typically cut up a full bunch of celery which will give me around 16 oz of juice. In the morning, I pour it into my NutriBullet with some filtered water and mix away! I don’t have a juicer so I strain my juice before I can drink it. It probably takes about 5 minutes tops out of my morning routine. Now that I’ve been drinking it for a while, I don’t even notice the taste, it just goes down like water to me.
I just received my NutriBullet for Christmas and I am in love with it. However, it does force me to have the added step of straining out the pulp. If you end up loving this juice and want to take out the 3 minutes it takes me to strain, I would suggest investing in a juicer! I will probably get one one day as well :)
What does it do? Drinking it in the morning on an empty stomach ensures best results. It clears your stomach of toxins and helps you to digest any food you eat throughout the day. When you juice celery it’s much easier to have more of than when you’re just eating it plain. Also, mineral salts are released from the celery when juiced that help build hydrochloric acid within our stomachs, which help us fight off viruses, etc. Juicing it can also strengthen bile. When I strain the pulp from the juice it removes the fiber which releases more healing benefits. There are so many benefits to drinking it every morning I could go and on, but no one wants to read 10 pages on celery juice. I learned a lot about it from The Medical Medium and here.
Just like any Instagram trend you can read all day about it and find articles that do and do not support it. Since I (and many others as well) notice a difference in my eating and digesting, I fully stand behind celery juice and its benefits.

Outfit and kitchen item details are below!
I’m wearing one of my super cozy outfits that I tend to lounge all day in. Both items are from Gap. My sweatshirt is a cute crop style (on sale!) and the pants are joggers. VERY soft, highly recommend. I also want to link my NutriBullet (of course, cheaper on Amazon than elsewhere) here because I absolutely love it. I think I’ve used it every single day since I’ve gotten it :) The Nutribullet Pro comes with two cup sizes (24 and 32 oz), a handled lip ring and a regular lip ring, as well as a flip top to-go lid. Very versatile! Also linking my Snapware here because I’ve realized becoming an adult means loving your brand-new glass containers that keep my food nice and fresh. SO worth it.
