Rustic and warming are two combos you gotta love for winter recipes. This month at LuckyVitamin we are honoring the mighty mushroom. They have been used for centuries to fight off the flu and keep colds at bay. Head straight for your kitchen and get ready to enjoy this comforting, hearty dish and make room for the shroom!
This vegetarian, immunity boosting meal is perfect if you’re gluten-free or just trying to avoid carbs. Spaghetti squash is a great low-cal replacement for pasta and, as a bonus, is high in fiber that helps keep you feeling fuller, longer. The free-radical fighting, mineral-rich mushrooms provide a great source of selenium. Garlic is a natural immune booster with antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. Finally, parsley contains high amounts of vitamin C and B12 to help strengthen the immune system.
