Get Your Daily Vitamin D With These Asian Marinated Mushrooms
Did you get enough vitamin D today?
I’m sure you don’t think about this question very often, but it is an important one, as vitamin D is essential for many functions in your body.
Getting vitamin D through food seems virtually impossible, but not with mushrooms. This vegetable is one of the best non-animal sources of vitamin D.
Vitamin D is key in allowing your body to absorb and deposit calcium for stronger bones.
Studies also show that regular vitamin D intake allows your immune system to work better and fight off disease.
As if this wasn’t enough, mushrooms are also a great source of fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and selenium, making them extra nutritious.
What about the rest of the ingredients?
You’re in luck, as these Asian marinated mushrooms are full of healthy ingredients.
To begin with, sesame oil is packed with antioxidants, it has anti-inflammatory properties, and it is a good source of unsaturated fats—meaning it is heart-healthy!
As for the ginger and garlic, these two ingredients are very good for digestion.
Garlic, on one side, is a prebiotic, so it promotes healthy microbes in your gut to help digest food.
Ginger, however, has blood sugar regulation properties, and it’s full of phytonutrients that act as anti-inflammatories.
Together, this all results in less disease, better digestion, and prevention of high cholesterol.
What else do you need tonight, other than this vitamin D-packed dish, which will also help your body feel better? Let’s get cooking!
