Win Game Day with The Blend™

Fall football is back in full swing. Raise your hand ✋ if you’re excited for this season! You can’t see us, but trust that we have both hands up high.

Now that weekends are filled with football, there’s no better time to step up your game-day grub. With help from The Blend™ – finely chopped mushrooms + ground meat – your dishes will score big with family and friends, no matter the outcome of the game. Why?

Mushrooms + meat = double the umami flavor.

That craveable, deep flavor of mushrooms can be attributed to umami. Umami is one of the five basic taste categories in food, and aside from mushrooms, can be found in meats, seafood, aged cheese and tomatoes. By adding one umami-rich ingredient to another, the flavor is automatically enhanced.

The Blend brings a boost of nutrition.

Mushrooms are low in calories, fat free, cholesterol free, gluten free AND very low in calories. We can’t forget to mention that mushrooms contain immune-supporting nutrients, including vitamin D and selenium. The Blend makes it possible to easily add a serving of veggies without sacrificing flavor.

Stretch your dollar and bulk up portion sizes at the same time.

When finely chopped, mushrooms mimic the texture of ground meat. By mixing into any type of ground meat, you can add more to the plate without hurting your bottom line. Win, win!
