Health Benefits:

  • A somewhat recent study has shown that button mushrooms can prevent multiple heart diseases. One of the major risks leading to heart disease is at herogenesis, in which plaque forms on the arterial walls. Button mushrooms can reduce inflammation in the arterial cells, and even prevent white blood cells from getting stuck to arterial walls. Down with the cold? Pack some healthy soup to have on the go and give your body much-needed nourishment.

  • Thukpa bears many similarities with momos. They are both comfort food well worth the effort put into them, and both came all the way from the mountains of Tibet to have a heavy influence on multiple cuisines around the world.
