Bacon! Just say the word and the mouth begins to water, right? It’s one of those foods that everyone loves and it works in practically every recipe—sweet, savory, hearty, comforting. I came up with a healthy hack for the beloved bite using mushrooms, and you seriously have to try it. It provides an addictive umami flavor and chew. The best part: It contains anti-viral properties to help the body fend off bugs. These chewy gems work great stirred into soups, sprinkled onto a salad or even added to omelets and other dishes. I’m all about ‘shrooms 😉
