Calories in Celery
A large stalk of celery contains a mere 10 calories, while a medium stalk contains 6 calories and a small stalk only has 3 calories. You can enjoy celery on its own, and it's also a very versatile vegetable. You can put a teaspoon of peanut butter on the stem for a sweet snack. It makes a savory bite when low-fat cottage cheese is stuffed into the stem. It's a healthy replacement for chips when you need a crunchy texture for dips.
