If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, a single serving of mushrooms a day may keep the blues at bay! That’s right, research seems to suggest that eating mushrooms daily lowers your risk of developing depression. A study from Penn State College of Medicine in the USA, published in the Journal of Affective Disorders, notes that: “Mushrooms are a potent source of antioxidants, such as ergothioneine and potassium, which could reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. These are known to be risk factors for depression.” And we’re not talking medicinal or “magic” mushrooms here – no, the study relates to good old budget-friendly buttons, portabellinis and portabellas, which are available in every supermarket fresh produce aisle. This potentially means that simply eating mushrooms every day is both a cost-effective and delicious way of remaining on the sunny side of life! In addition, adding a single portion of mushrooms to your daily menu is incredibly easy, as they are perfect in breakfasts, lunches and dinners. You can even fry up a satisfying batch of Beer Battered Mushrooms https://bit.ly/3Yd92w8 to share with friends over a beer or two this weekend.
