Vitamin D from Mushrooms!

Good news! A delicious way to keep healthy. Zapping white button mushrooms with 5 minutes of UV light apparently boosts the vitamin D content so a single serving will give you up to 869% of your daily requirement. Vitamin D helps to maintain strong bones and has anti-cancer properties. This is especially critical during the winter months when we aren't exposed to enough sunlight to create our own vitamin D.
