It took me a long time to create the recipe for the gluten free base of the cornbread quiche. I tried several different gluten free flours and found that brown rice flour resulted in a delicious thick and moist texture without being crumbly. Whether to sweeten cornbread or not is a great debate. I like the sweetened variety so I added stevia to my cornbread quiche recipe, but it is totally optional.

Health Benefits of Onions

Onions are the star of this post because I have already talked about the health benefits of eggs, broccoli and organic corn! Onions are high in sulfur containing phytonutrients that offer a variety of health benefits. The sulfur compound, which is responsible for making you cry, maintains healthy blood sugar levels by increasing the amount of free insulin available. The sulfur compound, along with chromium, folate and vitamin B6 found in onions, helps prevent heart disease by lowering homocysteine levels. Onions also contain anti-inflammatory agents such as vitamin C and quercetin that can reduce the pain and swelling associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
