iVillage.com: Foods That Are Healthier Than You Think

Button Mushrooms

Shiitake, porcini, portabella, reishi… these exotic mushrooms are usually the ones making headlines for being nutritional superstars, but what about the plain, white button variety? “These mushrooms are one of the best varieties for boosting the immune system and fighting inflammation,” Batayneh says. “They contain unique compounds that fight the formation of plaque on arterial walls, thereby boosting cardiovascular function, and they’re one of the only natural food sources of vitamin D.” Not to mention, their mild flavor makes them extremely versatile, pairing well with almost any type of dish including pasta, soups, salads, stuffing, casseroles, meat, poultry, omelets and even sandwiches, she says.
