I love simple meals that don't take long to prepare and this recipe is definitely one of them. If you want to add more protein, eat with some crisped up bacon or high-quality ham. If you want to add some heart-healthy fats, eat with avocados.
Here are a few reasons why you should eat mushrooms:
- they are low in net carbs and calories (2-4 g net carbs per 100 g / 3.5 oz)
- they are a good source of fiber
- they are a great source of potassium which helps with "keto-flu" when you are on a low-carb diet (this recipe gives you about 35% RDA of potassium per portion)
