Mushrooms are in superb supply this season and what better way to enjoy them than roasted and tossed through a fresh salad. They're a great alternative to meat, taste delicious roasted on the barbeque and loaded with B vitamins.
These vitamins are involved in maintaining red blood cells, healthy nerve function and in the release of energy from carbohydrate, protein and fat. So, the fitter you are, the more riboflavin and niacin you need. And, of course, they are needed for the normal growth and development of children. That makes adding mushrooms to dinner or having mushrooms on toast for breakfast a very smart idea.
