The meaty flavor and texture of mushrooms make them one of the great additions to meat dishes such as meatballs, hamburgers, and meatloaf. Because most of the mushroom species hold up to cooking, they can even serve as beef substitutes for vegetarians and vegans.
There is a research that has even found subbing out beef with mushrooms for one meal a day can promote significant weight loss. The reason is that you are consuming fewer calories and less fat. Mushrooms add fiber as well as moisture and flavor – stretching recipes to make them more economical and lower in calories.
If you have not jumped on the mushroom yet, now’s the high time. Scientists from the University of Buffalo revealed that portobellos (a type of mushroom) could help you shed some extra pounds thanks to their ability to balance hormones and regulate blood sugar levels. They also discovered that eating mushrooms may help you work out for longer periods of time.
