Supermarket Staple #9: Celery

Why It's a Must Have: This slimming, water-rich veggie makes a great edible serving ‘spoon’ for healthy dips and spreads, or as a crunchy addition to tuna or chicken salad. “Celery is a natural diuretic and a very low calorie vegetable, making it a great way to fill up without filing out,” Palinski says.

Budget Bonus: Palinski recommends buying organic celery, since this veggie tops the ‘dirty dozen’ list. To save money, look for store specials, stock up at a local farmers market or try joining a local co-op for deals on organic produce. And while celery is available in stores year round, if you buy local, shop for fresh celery during the summer months when it’s in peak season.
