Reduce the salt in your Friday night with this Mushroom and Shrimp Pizza.
Here are some great tips for cutting sodium:
- Look for foods that have a "Low Sodium label" or are under 5% DV per serving.
- Eat more fresh fruits & veggie on regular basis, including fresh mushrooms.
Fresh Mushrooms and Sodium
A 100g serving of fresh Canadian white button mushrooms contain only 4 mg of sodium. In addition, a serving of fresh mushrooms provides 8% of your daily requirement of potassium. Foods high in potassium and low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure, a risk factor for stroke and heart disease. Also, mushrooms contain Umami, which helps to boost the flavours of your food, meaning less salt is required to taste.
Cut down on the sodium, only 216 mg per serving, with this family favourite recipe for Mushroom and Vegetable Tacos.
