Chef, author, blogger at

“Mushrooms add so much flavor and depth into any recipe and it’s upping the ante on one of my favorite recipes from my cookbook - the Chicken Mushroom Larb Bowl. We’re adding nutrients like vitamin D, B vitamins, antioxidants and potassium into the chicken mixture to get an extra hit of veggies and even more flavor. You need it in your life. TRUST ME.”

Dayle Hayes

RDN, founder of School Meals that Rock

“As a school nutrition cheerleader, my work is focused on making sure that all school meals are as delicious, nutritious and kid-friendly as possible. Blended entrees like burgers, meatballs and tacos are a win-win-win for school nutrition programs. They have layers of umami flavor, they are lower in fat and sodium than other school products, and hungry students love them!”

“My passion is to inspire people to create beautiful, nutrient-filled dishes that taste as amazing as they look. One of my go-to healthy eating tips for consuming more produce is to blend ground meat with mushrooms. Elevating flavor and nutrition at the same time... a win-win!”

Jehangir Mehta

Celebrity chef, New York City’s ‘Most Sustainable Chef’, owner of Graffiti Earth Restaurant

“I’m a blenditarian because I adore how marrying mushrooms in recipes creates a sustainable meal. Mushrooms are one of the most sustainably produced foods in the United States thanks to their low water usage and the fact that they require very little land as they are grown on stacked beds. Blending mushrooms with meat is gentle on the planet, and for a sustainable chef, that is an eminent mantra.”

Logan Guleff

MasterChef Junior Champion

“I was a blenditarian before it was cool to be a blenditarian. My very first recipe was actually a blend. At age 8 I realized that adding mushrooms to my burger would increase the flavor and moisture, making my burger go from good to great, all because of mushrooms. Mushrooms are amazing!”
