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. Try growing fennel in your garden, just be aware of its tendency to reseed itself and take over your entire gardening space. To avoid this, keep the flower heads cut off so there are no seeds.

Dark Chocolate Covered Kiwifruit
Category: Desserts
Description: Kiwi fruits are rich in many Vitamins, flavonoids and minerals. In particular, they contain a high amount of Vitamin C (more than oranges), as much potassium as bananas and a good amount of beta-carotene. The high content in dietary fiber helps improving diseases such as diabetes, by controlling sugar levels, and colon cancer, since fiber binds to toxic compounds in the colon and helps us expel them.
Fiber has also been proven to reduce cholesterol levels, improving the conditions of patients with cardiovascular diseases and lowering the probability of heart attacks. Anti Oxidant properties in Kiwi Fruit are important to note as kiwi fruits contain a remarkable amount of Vitamin C, E and A. Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant that has been proven to protect our body from free radicals, dramatically improving the health of individuals who consumed it regularly against all kinds of disease, from cardiovascular problems to cancer and obesity. Vitamin E has been proven to have similar effects, but is fat-soluble and thus is complimentary to Vitamin C in its functions. Kiwi fruits contain both these vitamins in high amount, which help protect our body against free radicals from all fronts. Summary of Kiwifruit Health Benefits. Eating kiwi fruit is clearly a healthy choice, and it is particularly useful in these cases: •Prevents Asthma•Prevents wheezing and coughing, especially in children•Protects our DNA from mutations•Provides a healthy amount of antioxidants and vitamins•Helps prevent colon cancer thanks to a high fiber content.
