Oyster Mushroom

Why the heck should I eat mushrooms? πŸ„

Weird thing I learned this week. If you look at genetics. Human’s are more closely related to mushrooms than we are to plants. Makes you pause for a moment when you also realize mushrooms have a meaty texture. πŸ€”

For those who may not be familiar with oyster mushrooms, they are a type of edible mushroom with a delicate, mild flavor and a soft, meaty texture. They are a good source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, including vitamins B and D, potassium, and selenium.

Another weird fact about mushrooms, if you put harvested product into the sun upside down they will suck up a TON more vitamin D. Goodbye seasonal depression. β˜€οΈπŸ˜Ž

But the benefits of oyster mushrooms don’t stop there. Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should consider adding them to your diet πŸ‘‡

Oyster mushrooms have been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help protect against chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer.

  1. They are also a good source of chitin, a type of fiber that has been shown to promote healthy gut bacteria and improve digestion.πŸ’š
  2. Oyster mushrooms are low in calories and fat, making them a great option for those looking to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. πŸ‹οΈ
  3. They are also a sustainable and environmentally-friendly food source, as they can be grown on a variety of substrates including coffee grounds and straw. We have them in grain and wood. β˜•

Mushrooms that we have in the store aren’t foreign foods. They actually grow out in the wild here! Thing is they look a little different when they age compared to what we harvest. 🌲🌳

The mid-west and probably most of the country really didn’t have a lot of amazing mushrooms available until more recently, which is incredible given the amazing nutrition mushrooms give to us. πŸ—ΊοΈ
