Crazy blood sugar levels are at the root of more health problems than we can count. From diabetes to dementia, having sky-high blood sugar levels has become a national, if not worldwide epidemic. We’re so thankful to have health pro Mark Hyman, M.D. on the front lines of this battle against one of the top villains in the wellness world.
Last year, Dr. Hyman released his #1 New York Times bestselling book, The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet, giving us a course map for getting this health hazard under control. Now he’s gone one step further and created an entire cookbook to guide you to healthier blood sugar levels and a more vibrant life. The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet Cookbook is filled with more than 150 recipes all aimed at reducing insulin and inflammation levels, activating your natural ability to burn fat, soothing stress, and completely reprogramming your metabolism.
This sauteed wild mushroom recipe is straight from the book’s pages and is filled with four different mushrooms that pack quite the nutritional punch. Give the recipe a try, then enter to win a copy of the 10-Day Detox Diet Cookbook below signed by Dr. Hyman himself…
Dr. Hyman’s Wild Mushroom Saute
2 Tblsp extra virgin olive oil
1 large shallot, finely chopped
¾ tsp sea salt
10 oz. maitake or shiitake mushrooms, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
8 oz. oyster mushrooms, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
5 oz. cremini mushrooms, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
¼ tsp freshley ground black pepper
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
grated zest and juice of 1 lime
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the shallot and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Cook until lightly browned, about 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Add the mushrooms, the remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and the black pepper. Cook until the mushrooms are brown and tender, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. The natural juices from the mushrooms will release and then evaporate.
Transfer the mushrooms to a serving platter and sprinkle with the sesame seeds, lime zest, and lime juice. Serve.
