Mushrooms are not only low-cal wonders – 1 white mushroom contains only 5 calories and is fat-free; 1 oz of portobello mushrooms contains 10 calories and zero fat (that includes saturated fat!) – but they are also an impressive source of potassium, which helps regulate blood pressure and maintain heart health. Just 5 oz of mushrooms contain more potassium than a banana!
