Products I Love: Mushrooms
I am one of those people that really love them, with so many types to chose from they are one of my favorite additions to every meal.
According to Health.com:
"Mushrooms are valuable health food - low in calories, high in vegetable proteins, chitin, iron, zinc, fiber, essential amino acids, vitamins & minerals. Mushrooms also have a long history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine . Their legendary effects on promoting good health and vitality and increasing your body's adaptive abilities have been supported by recent studies. These studies suggest that Mushrooms are probiotic - they help our body strengthen itself and fight off illness by maintaining physiological homeostasis - restoring our bodies balance and natural resistance to disease."
Not only are they healthy but there are so many to choose from!
Yum! Mushrooms are very versatile and can be added to many savory dishes. Check back next week for a few of my favorite ways to use them.
