Fennel Fights Cancer

Though it may not be as well known as squash and Autumn greens, fennel is equal in nutritional value and most people who are familiar with it love its fresh taste. Fennel is an excellent source of vitamin C, folate, healthy fiber, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. What's more, the same aromatic compound that gives fennel its delicious perfume, anethole, is also shown to help reduce the risk of cancer. There are many delicious recipes one can make with fennel or it can be enjoyed plain and raw.
For a rich fennel dish steam it lightly then cover with Besciamel sauce and cook in the oven. On a healthier note but still satisfyingly warm, chop fennel with leeks, onion and potatoes and roast in the oven. For a raw food dish that's tasty, slice fennel thinly and then douse with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Fennel is also tasty when freshly juiced, mixed with apple, carrot and other fresh juices. Finally, try a spinach, fennel and lentil salad for a fulfilling dish that is nutritionally rich and satisfying.
