Description:
Fennel is a lovely herb, that can be used for many types of gardens. Try growing it in your kitchen garden, medicinal gardens and simply for attracting insects in your butterfly gardens. Any way you choose, fennel will be sure to please. Every part of fennel is not only for harvest, it tastes delicious! Fennel seeds are sweet and soothing, the flowers are edible in salads, the leaves are anise flavored and the root or bulb is commonly used raw in salads and cooked as a root vegetable. Medicinally, fennel is used in a tea to aid digestion, and also known to reduce hunger pains and sweeten the breath.

Ingredients:
For nursing mothers, fennel seed tea is used to increase milk. This is a great addition to a mother's milk tea. Fennel tea is also a soothing eyewash for conjunctivitis.

Wellness Tip
Smoking & Body Weight
Many women cite potential weight gain as a reason to avoid quitting smoking. Although smokers tend to weigh less than non-smokers, smoking appears to cause fat to move to the abdominal area. This further increases the risk of heart disease. You can avoid potential weight gain and help your heart by increasing physical activity as you quit smoking.

Recipe
Healthy Red Potato Salad
Category: Salads
Description: This salad will be very satisfying with a green salad with a few raw vegies and perhaps a little feta cheese and light dressing. Red Potato salads are delicious especially during the summer and there is an endless variety of tastes when you try different herbs and vegetables.

Red potatoes are perfectly healthy, as long as you don't spoil them by adding unhealthy condiments, such as sour cream. Did you know that red potatoes are lower glycemic because it has resistant starch. Red potatoes are higher in nutrients than other potatoes. Resistant starch occurs when some complex carbohydrates, like rice and potatoes are cooked and then chilled. It is starch that "resists" digestion enough to make it slow burning so it keeps your blood sugar level. Your appetite suppressing hormone rises and you stay fuller longer which makes it a great midday meal or part of a main meal.
