10/15/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal- Saturday

Fall is the prime season for mushrooms. Mushrooms are not a true vegetable in the sense that it does not have any leaves, roots, or seeds, and really does not need any light to grow. So what exactly is a mushroom? It is a fungus, which grows in the dark and creates more mushrooms by releasing spores.  They grow in a variety of places, and some are so hard to find (truffles) that they can be quite pricey.


I enjoy Portobello mushrooms.  They have a ‘baby’ size available that are perfect for slicing and adding raw to salads, cooked as a side dish, added in place of beef to lasagna and other pasta dishes.


They are a great addition to your clean eating diet because they are low in calories, low fat, low in sodium, and have only 3g of carbs.  On top of all those benefits, mushrooms have 3g of protein (for ½ cup), 300mg of potassium, and 1 g of dietary fiber.


I add them to my morning eggs and my daughter and I love to sauté garlic, fresh mushrooms, zucchini, onions, and a crumble of fat free feta (she adds gorgonzola) and stuff the cleaned baby mushroom caps.  Cook them in a 400 degree oven on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake 15 minutes.  Delicious.
