Something new I learned…

     While going through her school planner, I learned that celery is a ‘minus’ calorie food.  The body burns more calories digesting it than the vegetable contains. 

Of course this means that you can’t stump the end in salt or stuff it with peanut butter and raisins or cream cheese or that vegetable spread that is basically cream cheese with spices and bits of dried vegetables.  And you can’t fill the center with a ribbon of Ranch dressing the way the Princess and I enjoy it the enjoy it most.   Sigh.
