Forget about grudgingly munching on tasteless celery because you want to lose weight. Seriously now, who really likes celery by itself? If you do, I’m currently slow-clapping for you.

If you don’t, I have a great alternative for you. Now you can eat a delicious savory carrot and celery cake to enjoy the previously almost-tasteless-low-calorie-celery, but pair it with sweet and crunchy carrots and onions to bake a CAKE. Yes, you can finally have your cake and eat it too.

Carrots have beta-carotene that your body converts into vitamin A for healthy skin, vision and boosts your immune system! Celery is basically 99% water so it detoxifies your digestive system. Onions have biotin that helps make our hair luscious and our nails strong.

Doesn’t this sound like the BEST. CAKE. EVER?!

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup low-fat milk
  • 1 cup of shredded raw carrot
  • 1 cup of chopped celery
  • Half cup of chopped white onion
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (or ¼ cup parmesan cheese) (set some of this aside to sprinkle some over the top)
  • 8 slices of 100% whole wheat bread, shredded
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Now let’s make it

  • Mix the bread and milk in a bowl to form a dough-like consistency.
  • Mix in mozzarella or parmesan cheese (if using parmesan, be careful with adding too much salt afterwards because parmesan is salty!)
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Mix in the eggs, shredded carrot, celery and onion.
  • Mix thoroughly until it is all blended evenly.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  • Pour mixture into greased baking dish and bake for 20 minutes until golden on top.
  • You can eat this dish hot or cold!

Celery never tasted better!
