Many people don’t appreciate mushrooms the way I do, their earthiness and somewhat nutty flavor when they’re sautéed and browned in a pan – especially when browned in butter or ghee. I like how their rich umami flavor compliments a variety of meats, vegetables, and even cheeses.
There are tons on reasons why to eat them but some of the imp one are below :
Improve Bone Health
Help in Nutrient Absorption
Boost Immune System
Lower Blood Pressure
While there are millions of varieties of mushrooms through out the world, I most often cook with brown mushrooms (crimini mushrooms) or white button mushrooms simply because they are affordable and widely available. So here is my take on mushroom for low carb / keto diet.
