If you’ve never chewed on raw fennel, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Fennel has a texture and crunch that’s similar to celery and it tastes like licorice.

It’s loaded with fiber – and the seeds contain a substance that helps relieve bloating. If you don’t want to try the seeds, keep your eyes open for fennel tea.
