As the world comes around to healthy eating the growing interest in plant based diets have surged. I want to share with you some of the benefits and insights relating to mushrooms specifically.

The Idea

As more people are exposed to the world of plant based nutrition the tide is beginning to shift on functional medicine. Functional medicine attempts to identify and treat under lying health conditions using food. We have all been taught to believe that our nutrition is vital to a healthy life, however it’s only in the last several years that medical professionals have been vocal about how we eat and what we eat to stay healthy or regain our good health.

The truth is that yes nutrition plays a big role in how your health is determined over time. Unfortunately, if your health is already on the decline it’s tough to make changes in your diet that would immediately yield results. Often if your health issues are food related then what took years to develop those health conditions may take years to fix. 

Lets face it, eating handfuls of a variety of mushrooms won’t necessarily yield instant results but gradually over time can aid in optimizing your health. If your not a vegan it maybe even harder to change your diet to incorporate mushrooms in large varieties with every meal to observe the benefits of mushrooms first hand..
