REBOOT WITH MUSHROOMS
Mushrooms have a wonderful savory and umami flavor, are easy to cook, healthful, flavorful, and a cost-effective way to enjoy more plant-based foods. Besides being packed with nutrients, there's evidence to suggest that mushrooms may possess disease-fighting abilities. Plus, eating less meat in favor of mushrooms leads to less consumption of fat, calories, cholesterol and a higher intake of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals! Also, surprisingly, plain white mushrooms - the cheapest and most widely available are among the most antioxidant rich.
Mushrooms have been shown to up-regulate IgA antibody secretion, which studies show suppresses breast cancer.
Mushrooms contain compounds called beta glucans, which may boost immune function.
Sun-dried or U-irradiated mushrooms also contain Vit D2, the same type of vitamin D doctors usually prescribe for deficiency.
The amino acid L-ergothioneine, another rare compound, shown to protect cells against oxidative stress is present in mushrooms!
