Mushrooms are the superfood of the future. These little fungi are filled with a plethora of minerals, including selenium, potassium, copper, iron and phosphorus, that are not frequently found in other plant-derived foods. It is important to incorporate mushrooms into your life in order to help keep you young, protect your brain, boost your memory, keep your heart healthy, strengthen your bones, and give you energy. Today we are teaching you 4 ways to implement mushrooms into your daily routine.

Incorporate Mushrooms Into Your Meals

The first way may be a little obvious, as we often think of mushrooms as an earthy vegetable we like to include in some of our meals. However, how often do you actually go out of your way to include them in your diet? Here are some suggestions to help facilitate the incorporation of mushrooms into the meals you’re most likely already preparing:

  • Cut up mushrooms in small pieces and add into omelets, quiches, or scrambled eggs at breakfast for an extra energy boost in the morning.
  • Chop mushrooms into a ground beef like consistency and blend them into the meat you're cooking (or as a meat substitution for our plant-based folks). This is a quick and easy way to incorporate mushrooms into your home-made burgers (or plant-based burgers).
  • Add mushrooms to your pasta sauce. Mushrooms are also a great addition of flavor and texture to almost any side dish.

Eat More Mushroom-Based Snacks

Cooking with mushrooms isn’t really your thing? Don’t worry, we got you covered! A lof of brands have started producing mushroom-based snacks, varying from mushroom jerky, mushroom-based nut butter, mushroom infused lozenges, to mushroom infused sweet bites! Eating mushroom-based snacks is an easy way to make sure you’re getting the antioxidants your body needs in order to keep you looking young and healthy.

Drink Your Mushrooms

Now this one may sound a little odd to you. Drinking mushrooms? How is that even possible? We don’t mean juicing your mushrooms like you would an orange, although you’re more than welcome to give that a try if you want to. Mushroom-based drinks, including mushroom-based liquid extracts, mushroom root beer elixirs, and functional mushroom extracted lattes are great ways to drink your mushrooms! Yum!

Adding Mushroom-Infused Products To Your Skincare Routine

As previously stated, mushrooms help keep us looking young and healthy. Although ingesting mushrooms is one of the easiest ways to ensure this, we know the taste of mushrooms isn't for everyone. Skincare brands have started offering mushroom-infused skincare products. The antioxidants found in these products help keep your skin looking vibrant, hydrated and supple. They also help to protect both the skin from sun damage, aging spots, eczema and psoriasis.
