Mushrooms ARE Good For You

I recently happened upon an article on MSN called 5 Foods Every Man Should Eat More Of. Yes, I usually read this stuff when boredom at work sets in.

But I actually learned something useful today.

Mushrooms ARE Good For You!!!

You see, here is what happened to me.

A friend in college got me hooked on adopting a vegetarian lifestyle for a number of convincing reasons. He also happens to be the reason I don’t drink milk anymore (but still enjoy the occasional milk product such as cheese, or ice cream).

One thing he got me hooked on was a restaurant that had portabella mushroom sandwiches. Mmmm. They were so good. Problem for me, I ate three in one week and got sick. Now granted, I could have gotten sick from something besides the mushrooms, but it does have a strong psychological effect.

Now I read on MSN that mushrooms are awesome for Men’s Health. Huh, maybe I should check this out.

So I found a great website about mushrooms…

Fresh Mushrooms – Nature’s Hidden Treasures.

And now I am going to incorporate them into my diet more…

Has this ever happened to you?

Have you ever added (or subtracted) food from your diet because of something someone said, or something you read somewhere, or even a personal experience? I’d love to hear it.

A Depression is Merely Anger Without Enthusiasm

I’ll make this Friday post short and sweet. We are most likely headed for a Depression or a lost decade like Japan had. At least you will hear these references more and more in the coming months and probably years ahead. Our bubble is being deflated, both economically and mentally. So much is wrapped up […]

Personal Finance Challenge #41: Buy Local, Think Barter

At first glance, this may once again look like something completely, or at least remotely related to personal finance. How does buying local improve your personal finance situation?

How To Have A Healthy Baby

After my last post about testosterone I figured I would give everyone a more feminine related post. Instead of a post about how to boost your estrogen, I figured it would be better to talk about how to have a healthy baby. The reason is that these two things go hand in hand. For the […]

Control Your Food Portions, Control Your Waistline

Recently I have been reading a book about making decisions and the psychology behind it. Actually this book is more about neuroscience than psychology but more on that later. One of the studies in the book talks about how we automatically eat more when we don’t control our portion sizes. It was a study done […]
