That same old breakfast sandwich not doing it for you? We’ve got just the thing to shake up your morning routine and get a little nutrition in our morning groceries. Cooking with onions! No dicing required.
Better Breakfast Month is a great avenue of cooking with onions
September is Better Breakfast Month, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by adding onions to your morning nosh.
Eating breakfast is considered one way to help you lose weight, according to Webmd.com. “Researchers have found that on average, people who eat breakfast are thinner than those who don’t. That could be because eating foods with protein and fiber in the morning keeps your appetite in check the rest of the day,” Webmd.com states in this article.
Most major diets are calling for higher protein content, and onions are a low-cal and nutritious addition to get your engine running right. So drop the cereal box already!
The Webmd.com article states: “Resist that pastry or doughnut, though. Your best bet is a mix of foods that have carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats, and fiber. Carbs will give you energy right away, and the protein will give it to you later on. Fiber keeps you feeling full.”
This article from Time.com states that one of the healthiest breakfast includes scrambled eggs with veggies.
Onions can fit into every meal of the day
