Did You Know?


Did you know. . .

………that small onions are better for you than large onions, and that the more pungent the onion the better it is for you?  According to Jo Robinson author of Eating on the Wild Side, food scientists have discovered that small onions have less water, and therefore a higher concentration of phytonutrients.  Although sweet onions are tasty & easy to eat, they do not provide the same health benefits, such as thinning the blood, as the stronger varieties do.  Slicing pungent onions super thin makes them easier to eat raw on sandwiches, salads, etc.  Eat onions & eat them often!

  3. Hi! I love your blog! I loved this post because I’ve had a cat kitchen supervisor in the past too, and since I used to have cancer, I try to eat onions and garlic everyday for their anti-cancer properties.

  4. Hi Debb, I’m glad you are enjoying my blog; I’m having a great time with it. You should check out the book I referenced, if you haven’t already. It has lots of great information for getting more nutrition from what you eat.
