I was skeptical at first, thinking about the whole black licorice flavor, that I do not like, but I decided to try it. And boy was I surprised- I loved it!
Why Have You Done a Good Thing?
Fennel is a great BANG for your BITE. With only 27 calories per cup, you get 3g of hunger-fighting, cholesterol-lowering fiber! Not to mention the bone-protecting calcium and muscle-controlling potassium. Phytonutrients in fennel act as damage-fighting, health-improving, anti-oxidants. Also, fennel has been known to help alleviate all sorts of digestive issues, such as gas, cramps, and indigestion.
How do you eat it?
