I haven’t written an “I’m Lovin’ It” post in a looong time. So here goes nothing.
1. Hannah. I know this one is obvious but I cannot say enough how much she lights up my life. Her funny little faces could not be more precious. I’m lovin’ her!
2. Coffee creamer. Can I just say this is my new worst vice!? I got hooked over the Christmas holiday. I don’t buy it myself but when others bring it over or I’m out getting coffee… I cannot help myself! I always make coffee when we have it around now! It’s the best/worst thing ever! I’m lovin’ and hating it!
3. Red onions. I heard on the Dr. Oz show years ago that eating a cup of red onion a day can reduce your risk of ovarian cancer by something like 50%. Since ovarian cancer runs in my family…my interest was peaked. 1 cup of red onion seemed like A LOT though, especially since it’s so potent! The best way I have found to tolerate that much onion at one time is sauteed or roasted. I LOVE me some sauteed or roasted red onion! It’s SO delicious as a side dish, on top of greens, mixed with eggs, on top of pizza…I just can’t seem to get enough! Mmm I am getting hungry just writing this!
FYI: This is what I read on Healthy Body Daily:
” Red Onions contain at least 4 different cancer fighters – Onions can reduce your risk of cancer by 75%
Eating onions has been shown to reduce the risk of many types of cancer, including ovarian cancer. On the show, Dr. Li said that onions are the underdog of superfoods. Why? Because, although they can be strong on the breath, they are packed with natural cancer fighters, like apigenin, anthocyanin, myricetin and quercetin.
Red onions are about 60% more potent than yellow or white onions, in terms of the amounts of cancer fighters. They also have more flavor. But don’t boil onions; boiling them reduces their cancer-fighting properties by about 30%. The best way to eat them is raw or sautéed with a little oil in a pan.
To protect against ovarian cancer, you should eat a half-cup of onions – cooked or raw – every day. That may sound like a lot, but onions are a versatile food. Think about having some in a salad for lunch, and having some sautéed with your meal for dinner. Before you know it, you’ll have eaten your daily dose.”
I’m Lovin’ It!!
