March 1, 2018

Make a More Nutritious Meal with These Mighty Mushroom Recipes for Nutrition Month!

Is it spring yet? If you’re like us, you cannot wait for greener landscapes and more sunshine. Not only is March the start of the spring season, but it’s also National Nutrition Month! That means it’s time to hit the refresh button on your menu.

From power bowls to loaded salads, when it comes to amping up veggies in your meals, mushrooms are first in flavor and a powerhouse of nutrition. Be sure to reach for mushrooms while planning your Nutrition Month menu! Your taste buds will love the umami flavor, as well as the nutritional benefits, that mushrooms add to meals, including:

  • B Vitamins: Mushrooms provide B vitamins, such as riboflavin and niacin, to help keep you energized and ready for whatever the day brings!
  • Selenium: One serving of cremini mushrooms contains 31 percent of the recommended daily intake of selenium – a nutrient that may help the immune system function properly.
  • Vitamin D: One serving of maitake mushrooms contains a whopping 236 percent of the daily recommended intake of vitamin D! (Fun fact: mushrooms are the only source of vitamin D in the produce aisle!)

    I just love these mushroom ideas and recipes!

    I was attracted to the bbq stuffed sweet potato, but last minute decided against the bbq sauce. The beef and chopped mushrooms were cooked well with garlic, seasoned salt, beef seasoning and liquid aminos. Then deglazed the pan with wine. Put this on the sweet potato loved the savory goodness of the mushrooms enhanced with all the rest!
