I can remember while growing up, I never used to like onions. I always pick it out from my food whenever I see it and my mom will always say, “Will you eat this thing, you don’t know the health benefit of onions”.
A few years later, I realized how good onions are and really I can’t do without making use of onions in my stews, soup, noodles, beans cake etc.
So this brings me to the topic, which is why you should eat onions. Onions have a whole lot of benefit and if you don’t make use of it after reading this write-up, I think you should start and enjoy the benefits.
