Fennel is fantastic in salads, especially when paired up with sweet apple and sharp cheese like Parmesan. I opted for some prawns as my protein choice but grilled chicken or fish would work well too.
It’s light yet satiating and very nourishing. The best part is it only takes 15 minutes to make.

What’s good about it: This salad contains lots of powerful anti-aging and immune supporting nutrients, which we talk about a lot in our Happy Body Formula program. It’s a perfect meal to include in your weekly meal plan.
It’s high in B group vitamins and vitamin C, comes with lots of fibre, which helps with weight loss and is important for a healthy heart. Prawns are an excellent protein choice with high amounts of magnesium, which plays a role in bone development and nerve and muscle function (plus it helps you sleep better); zinc, which supports immune function; and selenium, one of our favorite antioxidants.
Parmesan is a good source of beneficial probiotics and vitamin K2, which is important to your heart, brain and bones.
