Mushroom Day
I have been trying (unsuccessfully :sad:) to re enter the world of JUDDD so I bought a 5:2 book the other day. More as a form of inspiration, and it did!

I came across a couple of mushroom recipes and thought, hmmm I could try those, they look delish!

So yesterday I went and bought loads of mushrooms and today plan on the following...

Breakfast - fried & grilled mushroom slices
Lunch - miso or Tom yum soup with mushroom bits
Dinner - a couple of portobellos stuffed with light Philly etc, and a couple of thick bbqed pieces (for extra -lol) and some salad

The mushrooms themselves come in at 165 cals - I'm excited to try!

Welcome back.

I thought Mushroom Day was a new holiday in Australia when I read the title:lol:

Recipes sound yummy....

:jumpjoy: Yippee, Vicky's here! Let us know how the mushroom day goes. I'm maintaining fairly well with 5:2 for the last few weeks. Best of luck!

Hi Vicky! I'm glad you are testing the JUDDD waters again. I adore mushrooms. Grilled portobello mushrooms with teriyaki sauce are delish.

Ohhh...mushrooms. The most perfect food ever created, except for maybe potatoes.
There was a steak place here when I was a kid, The Black Angus, and they had a mushroom appetizer. Little button mushrooms in some kind of sauce, can't remember all the details except incredible yummyness.
Waiting with baited breath to hear how this goes!!!

Hi Vicky! Great idea on the mushrooms, they do sound yummy!

Jen, we still have Black Angus here in AZ. Love 'em!

Hi Vicky! I picked up some mushrooms at my farmers market today, they were the really big ones, don't know the name, maybe portabello? They were stuffed, one with sweet italian sausage and the other with chicken herb sausage. I don't know how to cook them though:doh: maybe I will bake then broil, plan on having them for UD lunch tomorrow (one of them, they are as big as a big Mac)

Jen, I looved Black Angus as a kid! They had a chicken tempura with plumb sause which was the first time I ever had anything like that, with a sauce, and I just loved it:love:

I love almost any mushroom. So good and so low in calories!

The day was going well, but invited out for dinner - so ended up as a MD, think it is very doable - give it another go on Monday!

So good to see you Vickie! :hugs::hugs::hugs:
Mushrooms are one of my fav, right behind the tomato, peppers and avocado. :heart:

Vicky, the chicken sausage portabella was delish! It came out to only 176 calories.

Portabella stem removed, sprayed with Pam(thought this wld help in the oven)
Stuff w/ chicken sausage(3 oz)(reg Italian sausage works too, might be less ounces, unsure)
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

I had never tried portabella before. You have to use a knife and fork. I also topped mine with a fried egg.

Sher, Portabellas are my fav of all. I love them sauteed with onion, garlic, & peppers. If you enjoy tater hack, try adding sauteed veggies on top of roasted taters.

Hi Vicky! :hiya: Great to see you again ... wondering if you're having a mushroom day today. Sounds :yummy:.
