Eat Up! 4 Health Benefits of Mushrooms

Last week we gave everyone who purchased a bundle a free sample of our latest dish. And the verdict is in: they loved it!  So we’re super excited to officially offer the Hungarian Mushroom Soup on the menu as of this week! Mushrooms aren’t just a delicious ingredient in our latest creamy springtime entree. They’re also packed with nutrients. In fact, the health benefits of mushrooms are kind of incredible.

By including more mushrooms in your diet, you can:

1. Boost Heart Health

While mushrooms are generally cholesterol-free, they’ve also got lots of chitin and beta-glucan. These are the fibers that lower cholesterol and help boost cardiovascular health. 

2. Help Fight Cancer

study on five types of mushrooms (maitake, crimini, portobello, oyster, and white button) found they may help prevent and suppress breast cancer cell growth and reproduction. 

3. Lower Blood Pressure

They’re high in vitamin B3, also known as niacin, which helps the body drive out toxic buildup and can lower blood pressure.

 

 


4. See Healthy Weight Loss 

Mushrooms are a hearty (and tasty) substitute for beef. One study by John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health showed that when adults swapped ground beef for mushrooms in just one meal per day, they consumed 400 fewer calories daily, lost on average 7 pounds over the course of the study, and reduced overall body fat.

The Hungarian Mushroom Soup is so yummy!
We ate it as a soup and also used it over veggies and other meals as gravy. Your delicious food will be a staple in our house, as well as an inspiration for me to cook more plant based meals! Thank You!

My friend has been ordered on a plant based diet. I ordered the starter bundle for a birthday gift. What a hit it was-especially the mushroom soup. I’ll be ordering again tomorrow. If we continue to have these delicious entrees, it is surely going to help with the transition to plant based eating. Thanks so much!
