Every single time my husband cringes as I add onion to a dish, I raise my eyebrows. It doesn’t matter that we’ve been doing this dance now for almost 14 years; his lack of love for the onion is perplexing to me. I don’t get it. They’re so flavorful and delicious. I’ve even attempted to explain to him that onion nutrition is actually real, and that these do great things for our health. It simply does not matter. He hates onions and refuses to listen. He picks them out of everything we make. It’s sad to me. In fact, I don’t even know why I married him (kidding, of course). His lack of love of onions is his one flaw, and that I can almost accept. That said, however, onions really are good for us. They are packed with nutrition that can help us live healthier lives. If you’re not convinced (honey), read on to find out why you should consume more onions in your daily diet.
