Fennel & Citrus Juice + The Amazing Health Benefits of Fennel!

As a part of Williams-Sonoma’s Juice Week, I wanted to branch out and experiment with some ingredients I’ve never used before. I’ve been seeing fennel at Trader Joe’s so I decided to started experimenting with it. There are so many amazing health benefits that I didn’t even know about! Did you know fennel is great for:

  • Anemia
  • Supports breast milk production
  • Cancer & immune system health
  • Supports healthy digestion and can ease constipation, diarrhea, indigestion & flatulence
  • Acts as a diuretic – great for eliminating water weight after overindulging!
  • Supports clear skin and anti-aging
  • Hair health
  • Healthy body weight
  • High blood pressure
  • Female hormones & symptoms associated with menstruation
  • Vision

I love the diversity of this vegetable!

I recently had some fennel roasted with olive oil and thyme in this recipe and it was sooooo good! I also added a little drizzle of balsamic glaze on top which added that extra something special to really make it pop! I think all roasted veggies taste amazing with balsamic glaze and am kind of obsessed with putting it on everything lately!

Ok, back to the fennel! I decided to add it to today’s juice. It has subtle licorice flavor that really goes well with citrus.
