WEEKLY NUTRITION and FITNESS TIPS
BASD Health Matters Monthly #1
The Bethlehem Area School District prides itself on its health services department and the staff that supports it. Each month, we will give you some quick tips from our knowledgeable employees and partners.
Healthy Tips from Michelle Martucci, RD, LDN
Dietitian for Bethlehem Area School District
The ABC Tips - M:
Mushrooms are high in fiber and a good source of the B vitamins, iron, and selenium. Mushrooms are low in sodium and carbohydrates. Plus, just 3 portabella caps have more potassium than a banana. Some of the compounds found in mushrooms are currently being researched for their anti-cancer effects. There are 250 edible types of mushrooms. Some of the most common mushrooms found in a grocery store contain a compound called agaritine. Agaritine can be carcinogenic in high amounts. Cooking the mushrooms will remove the agaritine, making it safe to consume the mushrooms. Try to avoid eating mushrooms raw, like you might see on a salad bar. Try cooked mushrooms as a topping on a pizza, in a veggie burger, or in stir fry.
