Let's quell this confusion about mushrooms shall we?
Mushrooms are vegetables because they provide many of the nutritional attributes of vegetables. According to this study published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, mushrooms provide nutrients that bridge across core food groups. Nutrients that can be found in produce, meat and grains can also be found in mushrooms, and they are a good source of niacin, pantothenic acid, selenium and copper providing at least 10%-19% of the daily value, and an excellent source of riboflavin providing almost 20% of the daily value. Mushrooms are also a source of potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin D and calcium, four nutrients considered underconsumed by a lot of people, even here in naija. Some people go through their entire lifetime without eating this nutrient rich food, I used to be part of that group but I am glad i discovered mushrooms.
It doesn't matter if they are classified as meat or vegetable or better still "fungi " I am fine with the health bee they provide the body with.
Still in the business of making you take mushrooms seriously for health.
