Mushrooms: Your (Healthy) Resolution Solution

January 1, 2018

Mushrooms are the solution to your healthy New Year resolution!

New Year, better you!

If being healthier in the new year is a goal of yours, mushrooms can help. By swapping a portion of meat for mushrooms (psst… we call it The Blend), you can trim fat and calories, decrease salt intake, and add a serving of much-needed vegetables. What are you waiting for? Take the first step to fulfilling your New Yearโ€™s resolutions and pledge today!

The mighty mushroom offers a powerhouse of health benefits – giving you the boost you need to crush your New Year resolutions!

  • A good source of vitamin B, mushrooms can give you the boost of energy you need to power through your workout!
  • Mushrooms contain niacin, which helps promote healthy skin through the harsh winter months.
  • Flex your immune system muscles! Mushrooms are the leading source of the antioxidant nutrient selenium in the produce aisle – helping keep the sniffles from taking over.
  • Fill up, not out while snacking on your favorite fungi! As a low-energy-dense food, mushrooms can be effective for reducing daily energy and fat intake while still feeling full.
