Recipe for Creamy Mushroom
Around my house, we LOVE mushrooms, and use them very regularly in many of our recipes. Their earthy yet subtle flavor makes them incredibly versatile, and their spongy and meaty texture absorbs flavors in the most delicious way! They’re so versatile, you can add them to nearly any savory meal, and can almost always guarantee they’ll be a good fit.
Health Benefits of Mushrooms
On top of the flavor of mushrooms we love so much, mushrooms actually have many health benefits as well! Mushrooms are an excellent source of antioxidants, copper, potassium, selenium, magnesium, phosphorus, thiamin, and more!
And while the health benefits of mushrooms vary depending on the type, as a whole, they’ve been studied for their ability to…
Boost the Immune System
Mushrooms have been known to help boost one’s immune system, and aid in fighting off illness. A natural immune booster, and easy to add to most meals, I make an intentional effort to amp up my mushroom in take during the winter season!
Lower Blood Pressure
Remember the potassium we mentioned earlier? Well, mushrooms have high levels of potassium (around 223 mg per cup), which has been studied for it’s potential to lower blood pressure!
If you’ve ever struggled with autoimmune disease, you’re no stranger to chronic and unhealthy levels of inflammation. Thankfully, plant foods, including mushrooms, have been studied for their extensive ability to help lower and regulate inflammation levels in the body! Mushrooms, in particular, are full of anti-inflammatory benefits from components like polysaccharides, mycosteroids, fatty acids, and more.
With simply too many to name for this single article, the benefits listed about are just a few of the many potential positive health effects of mushrooms. So eat your mushrooms, and know you’re doing your body a massive favor!
Organic vs. Conventional Mushrooms
We often get asked, is organic really worth it? Well, in some instances…YES! In others, it’s okay to skip out on if needed. To determine this, we often rely on the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 Lists from EWG.
These lists are updated every year, and unload which produce is found to have the highest levels of toxins and pesticides (The Dirty Dozen), vs. those with lower levels (The Clean 15).
Mushrooms are currently on the Clean Fifteen List, and while most definitely still contain some pesticides, are lower than many other plant foods.
We totally get that buying 100% organic everything can get expensive quickly. Because of this, our philosophy is to follow the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 Lists. We don’t worry about anything past that if it is simply too pricey.
