A joint study of the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health and the Culinary Institute of America indicated mushrooms as the food efficacious in bringing down weight.
Dietitians have always accentuated the importance of vegetables when choosing foods. Fresh mushrooms can be added to everyday dishes to increase the vegetable ratio and ensure the intake of important nutrients including vitamin D, potassium, selenium and other vitamins.
Mushrooms’ fleshy texture makes dishes richer. Mushrooms go well with salads, spaghetti, hot dishes and omelets. Mushrooms heighten the taste of meat, fowl and fish. Their delicate flavor adds to a dish’s taste without bringing in an extra amount of calories, fats, cholesterol and salt.
Mushrooms help get the full range of nutrients and maintain a healthy weight.
