There’s A Fungus Amungus!

Portobello MushroomsDid you know that portobello mushrooms have more potassium than bananas? Potassium is especially important for dancers, because it helps reduce cramping.  And unlike a lot of veggies that can lose their nutrients when you cook them, the United States Department of Agriculture found that mushrooms retain 80-95% of their nutrients after cooking. So go ahead and throw them in the oven, on the grill or in a sauté pan with some olive oil, and kiss those Charley horses goodbye!
