Wild mushrooms are the best non-animal source of vitamin D going and some have the added benefit of vitamins B and C as well. They are also a good source of antioxidants such as polyphenols that have been linked with cancer-risk reduction and antiaging.
To prevent mushroom poisoning, mushroom gatherers need to be very intimately familiar with the mushrooms they intend to collect, including knowledge of the toxic species that look similar to these edible species. Best buy from a trusted health store or supermarket.

2 shallots, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 cups of sliced wild mushrooms,

|Sandra's Caesar Salad with Hemp Seeds and Dulse|
Description: The Benefits of Dulse Seaweed - Dulse is a reddish-brown seaweed that people have harvested for hundreds of years as a food source, as a skin care and cosmetic ingredient and as a nutritional supplement. Available in most health food stores either fresh or dried, dulse is rich in nutrients like iron and magnesium and its high protein content makes it an important vegetable for people who cannot get their protein from animal products.
Scientifically known as palmaria palmata, dulse is a red algae or seaweed. The regions of the northern coast of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans are the areas which are populated with this sea weed. This species, according to records, was harvested by some monks about 1,400 years ago. As I mentioned, people in Ireland are well aware of the different dulse benefits and so do people in China, Japan, Canada and North European countries. The popularity of this seaweed comes from its high content in vitamins and other essential nutrients required by the body. Dulse is usually soaked in water and added to soups, salads, and other dishes.
