Happy Wednesday everyone! As you all know, I like to cook. I use onions in virtually every meal I make b/c I love them. Up until about 2 years ago, I never had any issues with my eyes watering because of onions, but once I got Lasik (which was amazing), things have changes. My eyes water and burn incredibly bad EVERY time I try to cut one. I’ve tried lighting a candle, holding my head over steaming water (tried that one last night and it worked pretty well actually), I’ve tried wearing giant sun glasses to keep the oils from getting in my eyes; all to no avail.
What’s the trick here? What am I missing??!! How can I continue to use one of my favorite veggies when it’s literally painful to do so? What other tips am I missing?
