Recipes with Celery Stalk: Beet Soup with Lemon Juice & Parsley
Recipes with Celery Stalk: Beet Soup with Lemon Juice & Parsley
Frequently hailed for being a negative calorie food, celery is an ideal snack for people trying to lose weight. Being light and easy to digest, celery stimulates and actually improves digestion. Its roughage scrapes away excess mucus that may be plaguing your digestive tract.

Celery burns up ama while building the digestive fire of agni. The volatile oils make it a strong irritant diuretic, detoxifying stagnant water weight in Kapha individuals. Also great for hypertension, this stalky vegetable lowers blood pressure by removing excess water and thus lowering overall blood volume.

Celery is a diaphoretic, meaning it opens your sweat glands which is important for detoxification. It also contains compounds that relax the muscles that surround your arteries, allowing blood vessels to dilate. This improves circulation, reduces lymphatic stagnation, and aids detoxification.

About Celery Stalk

The word for celery comes from the Greek word selinon which translates to 'parsley,' a close relative of celery. Celery's powers have been known since antiquity. Leaves of it were found in the garlands surrounding King Tut's tomb, and Homer makes reference to celery in both epics the Iliad and the Odyssey.

Cooking Celery Stalk

Raw celery is an hors d'oeuvre staple. It keeps well at room temperature and pairs wonderfully with a variety of dips. Celery, onions, and bell peppers form the holy trinity of spicy Cajun cuisine. Because of its distinct flavor and ability to soften while maintaining its shape celery is a key ingredient in many soups. In France, celery, onions, and carrots form a base for soups and sauces known as mirepoix. Toss celery and other kitchen veggie scraps in a pot with water to make a savory broth of your own. And don?t toss those leftover celery leaves. Add a little kick to your salt by drying and grinding them, then adding them to your shaker.

INCREASES
Guna Help

Increases These Biocharacteristics (Gunas)

Functional Ayurveda helps you assess imbalances through 20 main biocharacteristics (gunas). Aggravating these characteristics weakens your body and causes imbalance. By knowing which characteristics are habitually imbalanced in your body, you will be able to identify and correct imbalances before you get sick. Every characteristic has an opposite which balances it (i.e. hot balances cold). You restore balance by favoring diet and lifestyle choices that increase the opposite characteristic.

TASTES
Taste Help

The 6 Tastes

Taste is used to sense the most basic properties and effects of food. Each taste has a specific medicinal effect on your body. Cravings for food with certain tastes indicate your body is craving specific medicinal results from food. Taste is experienced on the tongue and represents your body's reaction to foods. Sweet taste causes physical satisfaction and attraction whereas bitter taste causes discomfort and aversion. Kapha should use less sweet taste while Vata and Pitta would benefit from using more sweet taste. One of the first signs of illness is that your taste and appetite for food changes. The six tastes are sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent. Do you crave foods with any of the tastes below?

DOSHAS
Dosha Help

The Three Doshas / Body Types

According to the biocharacteristic theory of medicine, people tend to get sick, over and over again, due to habitual causes and imbalances that are unique to the person. Your body type summarizes this tendency, showing you the 'type' of conditions and imbalances that frequently challenge your health & wellness. Using body type, you can also identify remedies likely to improve your strength and resiliency. Your body type identifies physical and mental characteristics as well as your personal strengths and weaknesses. The calculation of your body type is based on your medical history.

The 3 functional body types (doshas), are Catabolic (Vata), Metabolic (Pitta), and Anabolic (Kapha). Catabolic individuals tend to break down body mass into energy. They are easily stimulated, hyperactive, underweight and dry. Metabolic individuals tend to burn or use energy. They tend to be rosy-cheeked, easily irritated, focused, driven, and easily inflamed. Anabolic individuals tend to store energy as body mass. If they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion. Anabolic people tend to be stable and grounded.

HOW DOES EATING AYURVEDICALLY MAKE YOU FEEL?

Eating Ayurvedically makes you feel nourished and energized. Food digests with ease when right for your body type (dosha). Healthy digestion is seen as the cornerstone of well-being in Ayurveda. Healthy digestion generally prevents illness. If you do get sick, a strong digestive fire reduces the severity of illness and increases your resilience. It also improves your mood. Once you begin eating Ayurvedically, you will feel refreshed, vital and strong.

His approach to Ayurveda is clinical, yet exudes an ease which many find enjoyable and insightful. John also directs Joyful Belly's School of Ayurveda, offering professional clinical training in Ayurveda for over 15 years.

John's interest in Ayurveda and specialization in digestive tract pathology was inspired by a complex digestive disorder acquired from years of international travel, as well as public service work in South Asia. John's commitment to the detailed study of digestive disorders reflects his zeal to get down to the roots of the problem. His hope and belief in the capacity of each & every client to improve their quality of life is nothing short of a personal passion. John's creativity in the kitchen and delight in cooking for others comes from his family oriented upbringing. In addition to his certification in Ayurveda, John holds a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Harvard University.

John enjoys sharing Ayurveda within the context of his Catholic roots, and finds Ayurveda gives him an opportunity to participate in the healing mission of the Church. Jesus expressed God's love by feeding and healing the sick. That kindness is the fundamental ministry of Ayurveda as well. Outside of work, John enjoys spending time with his wife and 7 kids, and pursuing his love of theology, philosophy, and language.

Have read elsewhere that celery is of the bitter and/or astringent rasa, but this entry has it listed as pungent.

Dear Isaac, Raw aggravates Vata even more. Cooked food balances Vata in general. Best, -John
