Optional Side Notes:

About the Onions….

Feel free to omit the onions! If you hate them, don’t use them! I have grown to love the taste of onion and once I realized the nutritional benefits I can’t help but use them in most of my cooking. Food-Healing-Power.com explains that Onions have been used for years in aiding various health problems. Good source of Vitamin C, Folic Acid, Vitamin B1 & K. They also contain an amount of sulfur which is beneficial for your liver and antioxidants which encourage immune building. Onion consumption has shown to be a natural way to thin the blood, lower cholesterol, raise HDL cholesterol (the good kind), fight asthma, and prevent certain cancers. Did I mention it tastes good??

Some like it HOT!

As always, I encourage anyone to “spice it up” in any fashion you prefer! I have the tingling sensation that a bit of heat would pair perfectly with this meal. Try adding jalepenos, hot sauce, or crushed red pepper to give this a jumpstart for your metabolism and tastebuds. Studies have shown that spicy foods burns boosts the metabolism. So why not? 🙂

Wrap your hands around this and many more recipes!
