Today, I am going to teach you to say mushroom, mango, mandarin and mulberry in Chinese.Â
Mushrooms are rich in potassium, copper, fiber, protein and Vitamin B. They are excellent sources of selenium, an antioxidant in a cancer-fighting diet, especially in lowering the risk of prostate cancer.
Researches have found that white button mushrooms restrain the activity of aromatase, an enzyme that converts androgen to estrogen, and suggested that they may reduce the risks of breast cancer and prostate cancer. Here is a recipeÂ toÂ use mushrooms to make a tasty and nutritious chicken pot pie (for children of 12 months +).
One of my favorite mushrooms is shitake mushroom. Used medicinally by the Chinese for more than 6,000 years, shiitake mushrooms have four to ten times the flavor of common white button mushrooms. In addition to their rich, smoky flavor and meaty texture, shiitakes are good sources of lentinan, an immunostimulant to treat cancer, AIDS, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibrocystic breast disease, and other conditions.
Shiitakes also provide high levels of protein (18%), potassium, niacin and B vitamins, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. These nutritional values and health benefits make shiitakes ideal to power up the immune system, fight infections, influenza and viruses, lower cholesterol and regulate blood pressure. Here is a recipe to make spinach casserole with bacon and fresh shiitake mushrooms (for children of 12 months +).
