Felicity Morrell is a nutritionist in South Australia's Riverland. Recently, she has been encouraging people not to discount the humble onion as studies show Australians are not eating enough vegetables.

"A lot of people avoid onions … but it's really important that they don't because onion is such a beneficial food for our gut health," she said. "It’s really about finding the amount that each individual person can tolerate rather than excluding it completely. We want to be including it in our diet most days where possible for those gut health reasons [and] they're such an affordable option to really boost up your vegetables in recipes."
