It seems as though we live in an Onion obsessed world. It’s rare to find a menu excluding onions and nearly all savory pre-packaged foods seem to contain them. However, if you are intolerant of these potent flavor-invading alliums you quickly will find ways to avoid them.
Surprising to some, it is extremely easy to remove onions from your diet. Not only do onion substitutes exist, there are in fact a huge variety of other flavors out there ready and willing to star in your meal without competition from the overbearing flavor of the onion. Once I realized that the Onion was the culprit of my frequent after-meal queasiness, it wasn’t hard to remember to “hold the onions;” believe me, I have made that request a lot! Upon discovering you are allergic or intolerant of certain foods, it’s not long before you learn to adjust your diet to exclude the offender. Most importantly, this knowledge encourages us to learn how to prepare our own personally healthy meals at home. Knowing exactly what you put in your body is a sure way to understand how your diet affects your everyday life. For me, it means excluding Onions.
