The Courgette is the dieter’s best friend; they are low in calories and contain very few calories. With significant amounts of Vitamin C and Potassium they will help your immune system and blood pressure as well. Partnered with the power of Raw Walnut Butter, this recipe combines lots of soluble fibre, which is great for bowel health, with a whole lot of essential minerals. These include; magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, iron and healthy fatty acids, not to mention a source of protein as well. Mushrooms are proving to be a key food for immune health with their polysaccharide content and button mushrooms are no different. Overall this light meal is great for dieters or those who just want to fill a space without compromising on energy.
