Kill 3 birds with 1 onion

Hello!

With school back in session, cold and flu germs travel faster than ever! Remember that you can protect yourself by eating foods rich in quercitin, like:

apples
blueberries
broccoli
spinach
lettuce
onions

or…best of all:

Red onions

They have 4 times the quercitin of the other foods. Raw or cooked is great, although the quercitin may be better absorbed if the food is cooked. Quercitin is an antioxidant, which means that it will also help protect you from pollution and premature aging.

Try slowly cooking red onions until they they are soft and sweet. They make great flavorings for chicken, salads, fish or all by themselves.

Have a good and healthy week!

Jill
