This felt sinful and yet healthy at the same time! I didn't have fennel so I used endive instead, I also just used apples and cucumber. Though the endive wasn't my favourite I absolutely loved this breakfast. My family looked at me like I was cracked...but then again I'm getting used to that ;) One of my new favourites.

I saw Dr. F. tell a member on Ask the Doctor to do a breakfast similar to this and I followed it - my blood glucose came down right away. It was: Fennel, red peppers, tomatoes, celery and raspberries. (or other berry.

This recipe tasted awful.  Fennel and berries just don't seem to go together for me.
