Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Mushrooms are a rich source of B vitamins (riboflavin, folate, thiamine, etc.) and are the only vegan, non-fortified food source of vitamin D. Recent studies have also shown that type 2 diabetics who consume mushrooms may have improved blood sugar, lipids and insulin levels. Additionally, both mushrooms and fennel contain choline, which has been found to reduce chronic inflammation. Fennel is also high in fiber -- just one bulb contains 7 grams of dietary fiber (~28% of daily requirements). Fiber helps to reduce the speed at which sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream, helping to prevent blood sugar spikes and drops.
