Spring is a great time to cleanse and nourish the LIVER. In Chinese medicine, each organ is associated with a Season. This detoxifying dandelion and fennel salad is sure to knock your socks off! Super, hydrating, refreshing and a natural digestive cocktail blend.
Love the Liver this Spring by making a Fennel and Dandelion salad. I can’t tell you how Delish this salad was. Super easy to make and your body will instantly feel revitalized. The liver has over 500 functions. A major filtration system to metabolize alcohol, drugs, balance sex hormones, adrenals, and thyroid health. This affects your energy, sleep, mood and much more.
Health Benefits of Dandelion and Fennel:
Dandelion has a gazillion benefits: Known to fight off herpes outbreak, fight off free radicals. Stimulates the digestive juices and helps to digest fats and supports the body’s natural detoxification processes. You can juice dandelion leaves, saute them or drink dandelion tea. Spring is the perfect time to consume dandelion.
Fennel is another form of food as medicine. Fennel has been used for natural remedies for decades. You typically want to peel the outer layer of fennel and thinly slice the inside. Feel free to use a sharp knife or slice using a mandoline slicer.
Fennel has been known to:
Improve digestion: Due to its fiber content, fennel helps promote regularity and prevent constipation.
Natural Form of Estrogen: Who would’ve thought that eating fennel helps balance your hormones. Estrogen is found naturally in fennel. Meaning, helps balance the female reproductive cycle and helps you lose weight and offset cravings naturally.
Weight Loss: Helps with bloating, cravings and the fiber once again helps to eliminate unwanted toxins and will leave you feeling satiated.
