My boot camp buddies are doing a food/fitness challenge called The Gauntlet, orchestrated by the ever illustrious and always inspiring Bust It Boot Camp team of Brooke and Doug Purdy. While there are a fair share of foods “off the list” most vegetables are allowed, including fennel. So, thus, I dedicate this post to those who have thrown down the Gauntlet. And also to Brooke and Doug, for each day I go to boot camp I walk away feeling more empowered, energized, and alive than ever before. Enjoy!
Chop fennel bulb in any shape you please. I went across. Add the feathery green leaves to make it pretty.
Drizzle olive oil and rice wine vinegar over the fennel. Sprinkle on some kosher salt and a few caraway seeds.
Inspiration and life's little twists always take shape around this house. The hamster was missing. The violin recital was looming. So my kids left a fair share of scrambled eggs on their plate in the midst of morning's madness. So I placed what was left of the eggs up against the salad for a little value-added protein. It worked for me. Maybe it will work for you.
Now I have to go find that hamster.
