Make this tonight if you can – you will love!!! This beauty is STEAMED FISH WITH RED ONION PESTO FENNEL AND OLIVES – it’s warming, satisfying and with plenty of anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties too.
Did you know these super cool ONION NUTRITION FACTS:
+ onions contain over 25 phytonutrient compounds including anthocyanins, sulfoxides and quercetin. It’s these phytonutrients that act as powerful antioxidants in our body to combat the effects of stress (hi!) and free radical damage and reduce our risk of chronic disease
+ red / spanish onions contain anthocyanins which make them the glorious purple colour (you find anthocyanins in other fruits and vegetables of similar colour too!) and can reduce inflammation, support cardiovascular health and improve blood glucose levels
+onions are some of the very few plant foods that contain sulfoxides, which have shown anti-cancerous, anti-atherogenic, antioxidant and antihypertensive properties
It is ridiculously easy to get onions into your food each day and I encourage if you can, to do so, to reap these wonderful benefits, and if you’d like to kick off with a delicious recipe then definitely jump onto my recipe below and you’ve a winning dinner in sight! Jacq xo
