Good lookin’ parfait dressed with sweet orange cream. Easy, healthy, delicious. Who would have thought that the combination of fennel, apples, and orange goes so well together? And, a slightly sweet orange dressing with the crunchiness of macadamia nuts makes this an outstanding dessert; don’t you just love to eat?
FENNEL - delicious and versatile
Let's talk about fennel. Fennel is a aromatic, sweet and crunchy vegetable. It contains phytonutrients such as rutin and quercetin. In addition, fennel is a very good source of vitamin C, folate, potassium and fibre. The bulb, stalk, leaves and seeds are all edible.APPLES - crisp, sweet and delicious
Apples contain malic and tartaric acid, which promote good digestion and cleanse the liver. In addition, they are rich in anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer phytonutrients such as flavonoids and polyphenols. Apples are also an excellent source of vitamin B, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and pectin, a soluble fibre that can help remove toxins from the body. Have at least an apple a day, preferably before noon on empty stomach.
ALMONDS - sweet and low in acid
Almonds contain protein, vitamin E, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. In addition, they are anti-inflammatory and strengthen the nervous system.
