Healthy Habits Start with Mushrooms
Let your 2019 healthy habits start with mushrooms!
Happy New Year, mushroom friends!
If “health” is on your list of resolutions this year, the mighty mushroom is the answer. Eating healthier doesn’t mean eating less deliciously. Mushrooms are full of umami, savory flavor, but are low in calories and sodium. If you’re looking to “add” more to your plate, consider that mushrooms are a source of antioxidants and B vitamins, which can help to provide energy by breaking down proteins, fats and carbohydrates.*
Check out the full list of mushrooms’ nutrition benefits and find one that fits your new year needs and resolutions.
