Weight Loss Flavors of Fall: Mushrooms

Weight Loss Flavors of Fall: Mushrooms 0

It is time for another flavor of fall to help you lose weight. This time, we want to introduce you to mushrooms!

Mushrooms for Weight Loss!

Mushrooms are almost designed for weight loss. A cup of mushrooms has only 21 calories and almost no fat. Mushrooms are filling, delicious, and versatile, so you can use them in your favorite recipes. Just make sure you use them right, because they can certainly make you gain weight if you choose certain preparations – fried and breaded mushrooms, for example, have 5 times the calories and carbs, 10 times the fat, and less protein than plain mushrooms.

Cream of Mushroom Soup

Cream of mushroom soup is one way to get your mushrooms, and regular cream of mushroom soup is one way to self-sabotage your weight loss efforts. A cup has about 200 calories and up to 20 grams of fat, with 5 grams of protein. In comparison, Cream of Mushroom Protein Soup has 90 calories and 15 grams of protein per serving. It is ready in seconds using water.

  • 7 packets per box.
  • Add extra mushrooms if you like.
  • 1 gram of fat.

Beef Stroganoff

Classic beef stroganoff with mushrooms and cream sauce has 300 calories and over 20 grams of fat, and that is before adding the pasta. An order at a restaurant can have 600 to 1,000 calories and 50 grams of carbs. Quicker and just as easy is a Beef Stroganoff Protein Entree with 260 calories, 21 grams of protein, and less than half the fat and carbs.

  • Ready in minutes in the microwave.
  • Shelf-stable – store in your pantry.
  • High in iron.
  • Real beef and mushrooms.

Mushroom Omelet

What better way to start your day than with high-protein eggs and a dose of fiber and flavor from veggies and mushrooms? Don’t get tricked by those healthy-sounding restaurant omelets. They can have over 500 calories. Instead, Vegetable Protein Omelet has real eggs, parmesan cheese, and mushrooms, in a tidy 100-calorie package with 15 grams of protein.

  • Make in minutes in the microwave or on the stovetop.
  • Add extra mushrooms or cheese if you like.
  • 10% of the daily value for vitamin C.
  • 3 grams of carbs.
