Getting Rid of Garlic/Onion Smell and Aroma

The aroma and flavor that garlic and onion in any form yield stay in my system way longer than reasonable. I need to be able to eat these two foods to help my immune system and my sinuses function better, but I can't stand the aftermath anymore (and now that I have a boyfriend again, I'm extra sensitive to yucky breath and stuff). What can I eat or drink to counteract these side effects so I can keep onions and garlic in my diet? [more inside]

Is a yellow part of a cut red onion bad?

Sometimes when I cut a red onion I will see that part of the skin (underneath the flakiest outer layers), usually near the root, looks different from the rest of the skin. It's not red, and shiny, it's yellow and duller, and it and feels a touch softer than the surrounding skin. Is this rot or mold, or something more innocuous?

allium palliative

My wife has temporarily cut out alliums from her diet. No garlic, onion, leek, scallion, shallots, etc. Also eggs. And broccoli, but that's not quite such a big deal. She isn't the sort to have lots of sandwiches and prefers hot meals. How the heck do I cook for her?

My childhood-instilled fear of wasting food kicks in...

I made too much sour cream and onion dip for a party and I don't want to waste it, but also I don't want to keep eating it with chips. More advanced cooks, is there any other way I can reuse (some of) it without somehow ruining the sour cream and making a disgusting gloppy mess? All I can think of is spreading it on toast, so other suggestions would be great. Ingredients listed inside. Thanks! [more inside]
