Tips to help you stick with your resolutions:

  • Cut calories and sodium by swapping out a portion of the ground meat for finely chopped mushrooms in your favorite burger and pasta sauce recipes.
  • Hop on the Meatless Monday trend and make mushrooms the star of your meals one day per week. Thanks to mushrooms’ umami, you won’t even miss the meat!
