I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday weekend! I spent my long weekend with family, friends and fireworks...how much fun is that?! Of course with long weekend celebrations, come delicious food and drinks, and they aren't always healthy.
Our July Recipe of the Month is a wonderful summer meal that can be enjoyed on special occasions with friends or simply for a light summer dinner. Grilled Mushrooms with Tomato, Avocado and Feta Salad is a fresh meal that will leave you feeling great and can help with your waistline this summer.
Including mushrooms in your diet will give you more of what you need and less of what you don't need. A half-cup serving of cooked sliced mushrooms has a mere 14 calories, virtually no fat, 1 gram of fibre and is a source of phosphorus, potassium, copper, selenium, niacin and pantothenic acid. Mushrooms are also a good source of riboflavin, and are the only vegetable in the produce section with natural Vitamin D. All that goodness with little calories and fat.
