Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Stuffed Portabello Mushroom


Fast and flavorful, this is an easy dish to serve alongside a healthy entree or even by itself!  Portabello Mushrooms are a tasty Super Food. Packed full of phytonutrients that boost immunity, reduce inflammation, and are a significant source of CLA (conjugated linolenic acid). These 'shrooms should be pictured wearing a cape!

Additionally... for those of us on competition diet, there is a category of food we tend to worship. Free Foods. ;-) Depending on the diet you're on, Mushrooms are typically considered a free food. As such, this recipe is a great way to stave off the vicious hunger that often marks certain phases of competition.
