Celebrating National Nutrition Month With The Mushroom Council

March is National Nutrition Month and it is a great time to recognize and appreciate all the ways we can bring an awareness of how important a role food plays in our health.
The Mushroom Council is a group of people that are fresh-market mushroom producers and importers, and bring the public an awareness of how eating and cooking with mushrooms can be a healthy and delicious addition to your meals.
The theme for March is "Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day", and whether you eat mushrooms cooked or raw, they are a natural source of vitamins D and B, and a rich source of antioxidants to help boost your immune system.

I have been eating and loving mushrooms for as long as I can remember. I love adding them to soups, stews, pasta dishes, and omelets. I often add diced mushrooms to many dishes that don't even call for mushrooms because they add flavor and a healthy dose of veggies.
I am a big fan of healthy snacking. I often put out trays of raw vegetables like mushrooms, carrots, and celery for my family to enjoy. I pair this with a healthy dip or humus, and it is a great way to enjoy a healthy snack. Sautéing mushrooms is also a great way to enjoy them, and my family loves them on burgers and other dishes.
Mushrooms come in many different varieties, are available year-round, and can help stretch your food budget.

Mushrooms are also one of my very favorite pizza toppings, too. When I make homemade pizza for my grandchildren, I dice up the mushrooms very small and add them this way. For myself and other family members, I love heaping on lots of sliced mushrooms. It's a great way to add healthy veggies to your pizza.
Mushrooms are so versatile and inexpensive that they can be incorporated into your day's meal plan, all the way from breakfast to dinner.

The Mushroom Channel is comprised of the Mushroom Council's website and social channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
Their website at mushroominfo.com has wonderful recipes, nutritional information, and current happenings.

In honor of National Nutrition Month, and to help spread the word about how healthy mushrooms are for our diet, come join a Twitter Party!!
The Twitter Party will be Wednesday, March 20th, at 8-9 PM EST, #MushroomDish. Come and join the discussion about everything having to do with mushrooms. You are sure to have fun and learn a lot about amazing mushrooms.

Eating mushrooms is a very simple, inexpensive, and delicious way to add a healthy element to your diet. I love eating mushrooms, and learning even more ways to use them from the Mushroom Channel.

Happy National Nutrition Month!!!
