Mushrooms can be amazing. They are extremely nutrient dense, and they contain massive doses of selenium, potassium, copper, and protein. Here’s an easy way to make them a nice snack or side dish. Heat the grill to at least 325 degrees. Oil some foil for the grill with a small amount of olive oil or butter. Rub 15 mushrooms with olive oil and fresh garlic, then place the mushrooms on the foil in the grill. Make a mixture using a half cup of parmesan cheese, 2 teaspoons of basil flakes, 1 teaspoon of pepper, and 1 teaspoon of sea salt. After 10 minutes, sprinkle a liberal amount of the parmesan mixture over the mushrooms and continue cooking them for another 5 minutes. Remove and serve after cooling!
Asparagus is high in B vitamins, and contains a great dose of anti-inflammatories and antioxidants.
