    • Boost flavor minus the heft with button mushrooms! Coming in at just 18.5 cals per serving, these umami bombs are every dieter's BFF. Plus, they offer up 15 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin B3, niacin, which promotes healthy skin and digestion. Not too shabby!

#Repost @very_derlicious My latest lunch go-to 🍄Marinated these in some lemon juice, salt, pepper, dill, and broth that I had leftover. Then I pan roasted them on a cast iron skillet for 2 min on the stem side and 5 with the top side down. Not sure the flavors held on enough to make the waiting time and extra dishes for marinating worth it... So the next time I did just the mushrooms by themselves and they were 🤗😋 For lunch I put them on salads or eat them with a little cheese and some sides
