Most people (cooking age or younger) are aware that onions provide a versatile food choice. Less people are aware that onions serve as "household wonder workers".
About Your Cutting Board...
Is it a wooden board? Is it a glass board? Is it a plastic board? Why is it what it is. In other words, why do you have that board? For example, did your cutting board arrive in your kitchen as a gift, or did it arrive via an informed choice?
[Hopefully you have a cutting board. Admittedly, I can remember the days when I did not.]
X MARKS THE SPOT
Each X marks a spot where onions might help.
True, thousands of X's are missing.
How decoratively displayed are your meals?
Sweet, wild VIOLETS offer beauty and nutritional benefits to meals. DANDELIONS. The same. ROSES. The same. Happy are those who not only are aware of these facts, but also actively pursue landing some flowers on their plates. Edible flowers abound. Eating them freshly picked best satisfies some individuals, yet interesting cooking options are in no short supply.
Your Knife Choice Plays a Key Role
Have you noticed that there are onion chopping videos galore?
Have you learned anything significant from watching any of them?
Let's say you have several left-over raw onion ringlets and a left-over section of avocado. Neat! THE ONION CAN PRESERVE THE AVOCADO.
If you aren't surprised... GOOD FOR YOU!
How do you do! How - do - you - do ????
Studies (and common sense) indicate that nutrition (cell-nourishing food and drink) influences our well-being. Onions (as many other natural foods) help our bodies minimize inflammations. Natural sulfur compounds, activated by slicing an onion, are many times able to prevent the chain of chemicals that tend to lead to asthma attacks.

Onion Bulb Selection and Storage
Common yellow, white, or red mature onion bulb SELECTION:
If you enjoy messiness and waste, sure, go ahead and select the soft, partially-peeled, lop-sided, open-necked bulbs (with a sprinkling of black powdery substance for good measure)!
Is the peel crisp, dry, thin, bright, shiny?
Is the bulb clean, tightly-closed, un-sprouted, well-shaped, firm?
- Dark powdery patches beneath the skin indicate mold.
- Open-necked bulbs tend toward thick and woods centers.
- Sprouted stems indicate agedness.
