Did you know fennel is actually rich in Vitamin C? 100g of fennel, which would be around only 1/4-1/3 of a decent sized fennel bulb delivers about 20% of the recommended daily intake of Vit C.
So between the fennel, apples, rocket and lemon in this one we amping up the C factor pretty nicely for you!
