Portobello mushrooms are versatile and healthy! They provide 11% of the daily fiber requirement and contain approximately 30 calories per serving.
Mushrooms convert sunlight into vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus, two essential nutrients for maintaining bone strength and health.
Portobellos also contain antioxidants, vitamin B, potassium, and selenium.
They are a plant-based delicacy that, when cooked correctly, mimick steak.
This recipe uses 4 to 8 mushroom caps. There is enough filling for all 8 mushrooms or 4 mushrooms with a side of the Spinach Artichoke filling.
These filled mushrooms take a few extra steps, however, the result is deliciousness on a plate.
Coconut is a miracle plant. Not only do I use coconut oil in my skin care products, I also like cooking with coconut milk.
Coconuts have a great nutritional profile and contain Vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6. They also contain iron, selenium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. In addition they are a rich source of fiber.
In cooking, I usually opt for the Trader Joe’s light version for 2 reasons:
- It has a lot less unnecessary fat
- The can is BPA-free. Remember, BPA LOVES fat (even reduced fat).
When I was recently at a restaurant in Laguna Beach I enjoyed a simple coconut rice. However in my version I added some veggies and a dash of nutmeg to make it more satisfying.
I heart potatoes. Baked. Boiled. Fried. I never met a potato I didn’t like except of course tater tots and frozen processed hash brown patties, they are nothing short of substandard imitations filled with greasy gobs of preservatives. However, a fresh potato, brimming with calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium, is absolutely incredible.
I have tried this recipe with both white and sweet potatoes and can pretty much guarantee, it is nutritional, satisfying and delicious.
