Lately, I have been craving onions, day and night. Even when I think about having something for dessert, I pass on it and have a red onion or a few green onions with a veggie dip, instead. I am certain that this is a lack of something in my body, but I don't know what it is. Any ideas?? To all those of you who took the time to reply to this question, and then I didn't select a best answer, I apologize. I am having a lot of trouble with my internet. I have a techie coming tomorrow, and so will be more reliably here in the future.
