Mushrooms are the SUPERFOOD for November! Mushrooms are made up of 90% water; they are fat-free, cholesterol-free, low in sodium and full of fiber. Mushrooms protect cells from damage that might lead to heart disease and high blood pressure; they contribute to bone health, building your immune system, and regulating cell growth. Mushrooms are also a versatile ingredient you can use in recipes; try grilling a portabella mushroom instead of a burger, or use mushrooms instead of meat in sauces. Enjoy some mushrooms today!
