About six months ago as I was creating small batch juice concoctions for One Lucky Duck here in Manhattan, I toyed with the idea of incorporating fennel into a green juice.

Fennel is known to contain anethol, an essential oil that has been proven to have a calming effect on the digestive system and is a superb anti-inflammatory. Moreover, fennel has been found to promote the release of endorphins into the bloodstream. What does this mean exactly? Fennel juice is a “feel good” cocktail stimulating our bodies and cultivating euphoric feelings! What a great way to start your day!

One afternoon, Emilie was lunching at Pure Food and Wine and decided to try my fennel, cucumber, spinach and lime juice blend. She was enamored by the harmony of flavors and it was this juice in particular that brought us together in glowing friendship.

I like to mix the fennel with cucumber as it is ultra-hydrating, keeping our hair, skin, and nails glowing and also a known cleanser on a cellular level.

The spinach is a excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

And the lime provides a touch of sweetness against the anise of fennel, also feeding the body valuable vitamin C to boost our immune systems.

Feel free to get adventurous with your own green juice blends. Every day when I wake up, I imagine my morning juice a blank canvas to create not only a nutrient dense refresher but also a work of beauty. Keep things seasonal and try to source locally. And most importantly, have fun with it. Keep your glow alive.
