Incorporate MORE Mushrooms in Your Diet

There are endless ways to incorporate mushrooms into your breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Try adding mushrooms to stir-fries, quiche, meatloaf, meatballs, tacos, omelets, and pasta sauce, to create nutrient-dense meal options. Mushrooms also blend perfectly with beef, turkey chicken, or other ground meats for added nutrients and reduced meat intake. This adds nutrients and umami-rich flavor to a food that is low in calories, fat, and sodium.
