Mushrooms in the News: 11-08-202
The Beet featured mushrooms as one of their 11 Fall Foods that dietitians recommend buying to help fight infection, have more energy, and keep weight gain at bay. Mushrooms are touted as “an ideal fall food since they can be a valuable source of vitamin D, especially if you’re exclusively plant-based.”
