Hello and Welcome Back! This weeks recipe are lettuce wraps. Classic and delicioius. We would have these for dinner all the time, but we haven’t had them in a bit so it would be fun to make them again and just bring them back! I hope you enjoy, happy Friday!
Onions where first discovered a few thousand years ago in Central Asia. Nobody actually knows who first discovered them. Onions where used for many things such as a food, medicine, mummification, and even art (onions, 1). Onions is one of the earliest cultivated crops because they were less perishable than other foods of the time, were transportable, were easy to grow, and could be grown in a variety of soils and climates.
Even though onions can give you bad breath, onions have several health benefits. They have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and have been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, lower blood sugar levels, and improved bone health (healthline, 2). –
They are also loaded with nutrients and minerals such as vitamin C, and B, B9, B6 and lastly they are a good source of potassium.
This is a delicious and healthy dinner or lunch to eat. In onions themselves have many nutrients and vitamins. I hope you enjoy this weeks recipe and have a great weekend! ❤
