Mushrooms contain hardly any fat, are low in calories, and have a low Glycaemic Index (GI) yet are surprisingly filling thanks to their fibre content. This makes them a great choice when you are watching your weight.
In fact, substituting white button mushrooms for meat can halve the calories but provide the same volume and filling power with no loss of taste. As an excellent source of both fibre and protein, mushrooms are particularly useful for plant-based diets.
– Mushrooms also help to burn fat in the body because their nutrients help to regulate glucose levels in the blood.
– Their excellent nutritional value will keep you energised and allow you longer workouts.
– You can eat them raw, stir fried, added into salads, soups, or sauces, and use them to compliment a number of different dishes. With such a huge variety of mushrooms out there, you have a variety of textures, flavours, appearances, and cooking possibilities.
This makes it easy to eat them more often.
