Most people gain weight during the holidays, and there are slew of recipes out there to follow specific diets — Keto, Paleo, you name it. But eating healthy through Thanksgiving just means adding the good stuff.
Consider onions. They are rich in fiber, high in Vitamin C, and studies have shown eating healthy doses of onions can help people stave off diabetes, heart disease, even some cancers, not to mention contribute to a healthy gut. Onions have all sorts of goodness that contribute to good health. It’s no wonder Americans are now eating more. In fact, in 2017, Americans on average ate 21.9 pounds of onions per person. That’s up considerably in the last 40 years.
We think the word has not only gotten out, but chefs consistently find new ways to incorporate onions into their menus.
The National Onion Association has compiled a page of holiday recipes that incorporate onions into side dishes, appetizers, desserts and the main dishes themselves.
