Antioxidant Boost: Onion Soup For A Lazy Sunday recipe

dinnerlunch

On a Sunday I usually don't feel like cooking an elaborate meal. A delicious onion soup is an easy and healthy solution. Onions are very healthy because of the many antioxidants they contain. Antioxidants help protect the body from free radicals. These are harmful substances that are created in the body by smoking, air pollution, sunlight and normal metabolic processes. Onions contain 5 to 10 times more antioxidants than other vegetables. Reason enough to often use them in your food.
