Portobello Mushroom Pizza (Gluten-Free, Vegetarian)

Print

Lunch is a challenge for me!  It’s hard to find low carb, healthy options that are easy and quick to prepare.  After the holiday season, my sugar levels were a bit too high, so I had to cut back drastically on the carbs. These Portobello Pizzas are a great option for an easy, diabetic friendly lunch!

Mushrooms are not only low in carbs and high in protein and fiber, but they’re also great for your immune system! They have lots of vitamin D, which is essential for fighting off disease. Vitamin D deficiency is extremely common, especially in the winter, when there is less sunlight. Your skin actually makes vitamin D from the sunlight. Have you ever wondered why people are sick more frequently in the winter than in the summer? Make sure you spend some time in the sun, eat foods high in vitamin D, and it’s a good idea to also take a vitamin D supplement.

I also want to point out that olives get a bad rap, but they’re actually good for you. They’re definitely high in salt, so should be eaten in moderation, but they also have prebiotics. Prebiotics feed the healthy bacteria in your gut that are essential for proper digestion.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Portobello mushrooms are high in Niacin (vitamin B3), copper and selenium. Niacin helps to lower cholesterol and maintain a healthy cholesterol level, copper helps to protect the skin from premature aging and selenium helps improve thyroid health which aids in hormone production. Plus, portobello mushrooms are low in calories so they are great for people who love to eat large portion sizes because they add volume, and vitamins and minerals to dishes without increasing the calories too much!
