September is Mushroom Month! This month, #Fall4Mushrooms and rediscover all that the amazing funghi has to offer! Fat-free, low-calorie, nutrient-dense, and low in sodium; PLUS they contain natural antioxidants and are the only fresh fresh fruit or vegetable with Vitamin D. I am a member of the One2One network
It’s no wonder they are considered Nature’s Hidden Treasure!
With fall just around the corner, we’re super excited about creating seasonal dishes that taste delicious and nutritious.
Mushrooms are a great way to get more vegetables onto the dinner plate and follow MyPlate guidelines, thanks to their versatility. It’s easy to make half the plate veggies by blending mushrooms and meat n classic dishes, such as burgers, taco, pizza and more.
Mushrooms are low in sodium, plus their umami quality counter balances saltiness so less salt can be used in preparation of a dish.
Mushrooms are grown indoors, so they are always in season and ready to use.
Mushrooms can be an everyday kitchen ingredient to add an extra special touch to foods (chicken, pasta, rice, meat, potatoes); in addition, mushrooms fit into today’s food trends (simple, natural, healthier foods, basic and satisfying).
