Talking about hearts skipping a beat, we love the fact that research is indicating that mushrooms may just be the perfect candidate to prevent heart attacks and strokes: They’re virtually fat-free, high in fibre and provide potassium - but are low in sodium – making them one of the most virtuous ingredients for healthy blood cholesterol and healthy blood pressure. So there you have it - adding mushrooms regularly to your meals may be one of the easiest (and most delicious!) ways to a healthy heart.
But, these miracle morsels are not happy to just love your heart, they are also the kings of umami, the lip-smacking 5th flavour that they generously offer to any dish plus they’re low in kilojoules and packed with anti-oxidants. Put all this together with its cholesterol-lowering ability and you have a very tasty ingredient that is taking good care of your heart too.
