P2 Snack Idea – Fried Celery

Here is one of my favorite snacks! Although I love to eat celery cold, this recipe is much more tasty! This is a really easy to make and it’s one you can eat and not worry about packing on the calories. If you are on P2, you can count this as your vegetable but since it’s so very low in calories you don’t need to worry if you go over your 500/800 limit.

Fried Celery

Braggs Liquid Aminos, to taste

Heat oil in a fry pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add celery and broth and cook for about 3-5 minutes or until celery is cooked to desired doneness. Sprinkle with Asian seasoning and liquid aminos.

    I’m noticing these recipes have additives like:coconut oil and chopped onion and garlic. None of which are listed in dr.Simeons original protocol. Are these ok to use all the time in small quantities? I just want to have the highest weight dropped possible and he warms to stick strictly to his diet plan if u want to acheive maximum results. Can you give me some clarity? I would really like to add something’s to these very plain and unappetizing meals I’ve been making myself so far! Lol

        Made this for lunch today and it was delicious. I am not crazy about celery but I think I like it much better cooked. And adding in the shrimp made the meal! Yum!
