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.

  1. I love Mushrooms – you just have to be careful if you’re picking them up in the wild… Could be poisonous!

    The only thing I’ve ever consciously added to my diet is yogurt. Similar to mushrooms, yogurt.

  2. I love mushrooms. I love cooking with them too. My favorite is an onion and mushroom wine sauce I use on steaks.

  3. Losing weight without exercise is one of the most widely used statements in the weight loss industry. Is diet better than exercise? Is it possible to lose weight and keep it off without any kind of activity at all? Well, the answer to that is NO. Exercising is a very important factor and dieting alone will not help you lose weight. To lose weight you need to have caloric deficit. There are two ways how you can do that. One is to decrease the amount of calories you consume (eat less). The other is to increase the amount of calories you burn (exercise more).
