March is Nutrition Month! In celebration, let’s take a look at the nutritional profile of 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!
Are you a big fan of salty snacks? My weekend go-to’s tend to be a bag of chips or the pickle jar! Seriously, even when I try to be healthy and eat a salad, I load up on the sodium-packed salad dressings. Friday nights for me tend to be my pizza night, which of course also has a high salt content.
Reduce the salt in your Friday night with this Mushroom and Shrimp Pizza.
One of my favourite mushrooms to eat in the summer has got to be the Portabella Mushroom. Since they are such a large mushroom, they tend to lose much of their moisture during growth. This lack of moisture is what gives them that meaty texture and makes them an excellent substitute for meat and a vegetarian’s best friend. In the summertime, I simply can’t say no to a Portabella Burger or a Stuffed Portabella, especially when they are jam-packed of all that good-ness – and I don’t mean just the yummy filling!
Are you having a tough time with your weight this summer? It’s been
hot scorching this summer and I’ve spent most of it in a bathing suit, which is great, until the BBQ fires up. I can’t help myself when I’m surrounded by delicious foods and I know I’m not alone. Nearly two-thirds of Canadians are either overweight or obese and feeling great can be difficult in summer swimwear.
