Health, Taste, and Texture with Mushrooms!

Mushrooms are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and very low in sodium, yet they provide important nutrients, including selenium, potassium (8%), riboflavin, niacin and vitamin D.

Mushrooms are the only vegetable (or fruit) which has Vitamin D in it. They support our immune system and provide us with essential B Vitamins such as Pantothenic Acid, Riboflavin, and Niacin. B Vitamins are vital for turning food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which the body burns to produce energy. They also help the body metabolize fats and protein.

Garlic is heart healthy!

 

Garlic is used for many conditions related to the heart and blood system. These conditions include high blood pressure, low blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary heart disease, heart attack, reduced blood flow due to narrowed arteries, and hardening of the arteries. Consuming garlic on a daily basis (in food or raw) helps to lower cholesterol levels because of the antioxidant properties. It is also immensely beneficial to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
