Celeriac (a.k.a. celery root), is a variety of celery that is harvested for its roots, rather than the stalk. Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to discard the tops. As with animals, eating the whole plant is a great way to get and extra serving of vegetables, along with all those nutrients.
Celeriac is a nutrient-dense food, which means, not only can you include it as part of your Paleo lifestyle, but you should. It comes chock full of vitamins C and K, as well as various B vitamins and phosphorous (source).
