One Of My Favorite Vegetables!

The weekend is here everyone! WOOOHOOOOOOO!! 🙂

Yes, the weekend is here and so is fennel.

 Saturday’s Food For Thought: Fennel

You know that vegetable that has a slight licorice taste to it?? Aww yes, fennel. One of my favorite vegetables to cook with. I love adding fennel to spanakopita, and mixed vegetables. 

Benefits Of Fennel

  • Fennel contains its own unique combinations of phytonutrients. The most fascinating phytonutrient found in fennel is called anethole, which has been shown to reduce inflammation and prevent cancer.
  • Fennel has a great source of Vitamin C. The Vitamin C that is found in fennel bulb is directly antimicrobial and is needed for the proper function of the immune system.

“Greek myths state that fennel was not only closely associated with Dionysus, the Greek god of food and wine, but that a fennel stalk carried the coal that passed down knowledge from the gods to men.”

Quoted from a website called The World’s Healthiest Foods. 

Have a wonderful weekend!!
