Beauty Bite: Portobello Mushroom

By Lauren Talbot

Boost your beauty with portobello mushrooms.

As a great source of plant protein, portobello mushrooms are the perfect beauty bite for beautiful skin, hair, and nails. With high levels of B-12, essential for your nervous system and metabolism, selenium, which slows aging and boosts immunity, and copper, important for helping to transport oxygen throughout the blood, portobello mushrooms are alkalizing and anti-aging – and the ideal meat substitute for wanna be vegetarians!

Pretty Prescription:  Baked portabello mushrooms make for a wonderful meaty substitute. Remove stems and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until steaming and juicy on top. Serve warm or cold on top a bed of greens or in replace of beef on a toasted hamburger bun.
