A Healthy Start to the New Year with Mushrooms
I need to make my New Year’s Resolution simpler. I should have known that the promise of a 6am gym routine was not going to come easy.
What did you resolve to do this year?
If maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to you and your family, mushrooms are here to help!
I can’t tell you have many times I’ve been asked if mushrooms are nutritious, and am given a look of surprise when I rattle off the benefits these little guys have to offer!
When you add mushrooms to meals, you’re also adding B Complex Vitamins, Minerals, Fibre and Vitamin D. F our to five medium sized mushrooms (100 g) provide important vitamins and minerals, essential for a healthy body and active lifestyle.
Health & Wellness
Perfect for this chilly time of year, mushrooms can also help boost your immunity, and help with weight management! Along with antioxidants and essential nutrients such as phosphorus, potassium, copper, selenium, niacin and pantothenic acid, mushrooms are the perfect addition to your meals.
If you struggle with a personal health concern, you may be surprised that mushrooms could help you too! Blood Pressure, Arthritis, Diabetes and Heart Health are a few of the concerns that benefit from adding mushrooms to your meal plan.
This time of year, we all lack the sunshine we do in the warmer months. Combat a Vitamin D deficiency with the only vegetable that naturally contains Vitamin D, mushrooms!
