One of my favorite sides is sauteed mushrooms, and for good reason! Mushrooms are low in calories, and are great sources of fiber and protein (good for plant-based diets).
They also provide many important nutrients, including B vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper, and (particularly when exposed to the sun) vitamin D.
Other benefits of mushrooms are improved immunity, potential lowering of cancer risk, improved digestion, increase longevity because of their high antioxidant content and weight loss. In fact, a study has shown that eating less meat and more mushrooms resulted in significant weight loss, lower body mass index and improved blood pressure.
Who knew?! Good thing I really LOVE sauteed mushrooms!
