Fast Fajitas

While you are downing/smashing your protein shake after a workout, you can whip up these healthy”fa-gi-tas” fast. I like to use Vidalia onions and coconut oil for a hint of sweetness, which complements the spiciness/saltiness nicely.

Health Benefits of Portobello Mushrooms

portobello-mushroomsPortobellos have a balance of protein and carbs, and they are low in fat. They have a moderately high amount of fiber.

Fiber is a key substance for controlling cholesterol and blood-sugar levels.

It also has a filling effect on the body, which is beneficial for weight maintenance.

Portobello mushrooms contain moderate amounts of B vitamins.

This helps with red blood cell formation, nervous system function, and energy production.

Among all natural food sources, mushrooms are the only ones containing selenium, a compound necessary for the proper function of the thyroid and male reproductive systems.

Selenium is an antioxidant that protects the cells from damage from heart disease, age-related diseases, and certain cancers.
