In the name of science, I did a little experiment this morning. Remember how I wrote that I don’t cry when cutting onions? Everyone said it was my contact lens. So I took ‘em off, chopped a big old onion, and guess what? No tears. Explain that!
The real miracle was that I chopped an onion without contacts or glasses on and didn’t cut off a finger.
Anyone remember the Chocolate Cherry Bomb smoothie that was very popular in the blog world about three years ago? I tried to find the original recipe link but couldn’t (anyone know it?). Basically, it included frozen cherries, raw spinach, chocolate syrup, a banana, and milk/soy milk.
Here’s a twist on the original goodness. Yum.
1 cup soy milk
6 frozen cherries
3 frozen strawberries
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
Protein powder (side note: you guys were right… that Pea Protein is perfectly yummy if you add a sweetener)
A few drop of stevia or squirt of another sweetener (agave, honey, etc.)
Have a good one!
Funny! What about the type of onion? I noticed that when I cut red onion or sweet onion that I don’t tear up, but when I cut a regular yellow onion, I have to go to a completely different room to rescue my eyes from pain and water. And I wear contacts 🙂
