September is National Self Care Month so we are celebrating self-care all month long! One way to take extra care of yourself is by eating delicious and healthy vegetables that are packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins that will benefit your whole system. One of these powerful veggies is the ONION, but not all onions are the same! Onion varieties range from red, white, yellow, and the Sweetie Sweet® from Peri & Sons Farms!

If you're looking for a truly sweet onion grown in the USA, feast your eyes on these Sweetie Sweet® onions grown only at Peri & Sons Farms. These special Sweetie Sweets are tender and juicy with just the right balance of sweetness and pungency. Plus, these onions are sustainably and organically grown, they are hand-harvested and cured with loving care in a food-safe environment. Peri & Sons Farms pack and ship direct from their family farms, so they are fresher and will last longer than sweet onions imported from other countries. Keep your eyes "peeled" for these onions, which are widely available from July through December each year.

Now, you might be wondering, "What's the connection between self-care and onions?" Well, the answer is simple – health starts from the inside out, and onions can help to promote your overall health and promote good gut health! Organosulfur and other compounds in onions help increase circulation, lower blood pressure, and prevent blood clotting, detoxify the body and skin and also fight the free radicals that can cause cell destruction and disease. Healthier foods help give us healthier bodies. The fact is, onions are fat-free, cholesterol-free, low in sodium, high in vitamin C and a good source of fiber.
