This is the first post for my challenge plan, and I promise it will be more to throw in my blog, keep stop by this blog if you can.

This is a quick, delicious, feel guiltless and healthy way to enjoy a sandwich.

Portobello mushrooms have a moderately high amount of fiber. A 100-gram serving contains just over 2 grams. 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 ( that’s what I want ). Adding sliced portobello to a salad or laying it over a bed of risotto or quinoa will boost the fiber content. It is a steak for vegetarian.

It is low energy-density foods and low in calories. (that’s is what I aiming for). But spreading a tablespoon of butter across the top, for example, adds more than 100 calories. So, take care of it!

Portobello mushrooms have moderate amounts of potassium. A 100-gram serving contains 437 milligrams. Eating a portobello with fish, beans or potatoes will increase the potassium content. A 1/2 cup of pinto beans, for example, contributes an additional 400 milligrams. It is an important electrolyte mineral needed for muscle contractions, protein synthesis, nerve function and acid-alkaline balance.

Having portobellos with whole grains, fish or leafy green vegetables will boost the B vitamin content.
