Today, I have a Mushroom Council Giveaway. From now until November 15, select retailers nationwide will be selling mushrooms in pink containers. This is in recognition of breast cancer research and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Since 2002, the Mushroom Council has invested more than $750,000 in grants to City of Hope for research on mushrooms and cancer.

This fall, the Council will provide an additional $50,000 to continue funding this important research.  City of Hope is a leading research, treatment and education center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. It is designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, the highest honor bestowed by the National Cancer Institute.

Did you know?

  • Mushrooms are low in sodium and calories, fat and cholesterol-free.
  • You can use mushrooms as an effective substitute for meats thanks to their hearty and fulfilling nature.
  • Mushrooms are the only item in the produce aisle to provide vitamin D, and one of the few non-fortified food sources.
  •  All mushrooms contain vitamin D, but growers also have the ability to increase D levels by exposing mushrooms to ultraviolet light.
  • These friendly fungi provide critical nutrients like energizing B vitamins, potassium and powerful antioxidants including ergothionene and selenium.
  • Mushrooms are already low in sodium, plus their umami counterbalances saltiness. This allows less salt to be used in a dish, without compromising flavor.
  • Mushrooms are a kitchen staple: they can star as the feature ingredient, or pair with any dish. Try them every day, in every way.

You can join me tomorrow Tuesday October 4 in the Mushroom Council #gno Twitter party. It is from 9-11 ET to chat about balancing health, wellness & breast cancer awareness.  Should be fun so be sure to RVSP!  Check who else will be at the party:

Also, there are some “Cooking Against Cancer” recipes available at the City of Hope Facebook Super Foods tab.
