Mushrooms may be a lowly fungi, but they rank right up there with tomatoes, carrots and peppers in terms of activity of two antioxidants: polyphenols and ergothioneine. This makes them great for reducing the risk for diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s.  They also contain the mineral selenium, which prevents inflammation and may help slow the growth of tumors. Whether you choose crepes, pizza or a grain side dish, be sure to get these guys on your plate!
