The best crispy mushrooms, really? But let me share a little something with you all – I hate mushrooms.
I’ve been researching nutritional information on different foods, as I normally do and I consistently come to the conclusion that I need to find a way to tolerate this weird textured fungus. It’s all about nutrition with me. If its void in a benefit…then why consume it? Food is of course your body’s roadmap to how your cells respond, inflammation, energy source or just plain ole crap that harms your temple. Remember, your body is your temple and you need to treat it right. End of story. Yes, a treat here or there is acceptable but on a daily basis the food you choose must be food that your body understands and knows unlike genetically modified crap out there. Sorry to be harsh but it’s food now or medicine later.
Mushrooms are the answer. Seriously. But let’s get a bit of background. Mushrooms are classified as vegetables in the food world, but they are not technically plants but belong to the fungi kingdom. Selenium, rarely found in fruits or veggies is found in mushrooms. It helps detox the liver and aids in detoxify some cancer-causing compounds in the body. Additionally, selenium prevents inflammation and decrease tumor growth rates.
High fiber diets, hello mushrooms, can aid in reducing type 1 diabetes. Has beta-glutan which aids in cholesterol reduction. Because of the fiber, your satiety level is higher leaving you filled for longer periods of time. One cup has only 15 calories, 2.2 grams of protein and less than 2 grams of carbs.
Okay all the benefits but these babies have the weirdest texture, right? Well by slicing them super thin… tossing them with really good spices and some other goodies… these little fungi crisped up perfectly and were the best salad, soup or mac n cheese topper out there! Let’s get started…
