Some people go to Coachella in the Spring, others go to Morchella---aka the real name of the True Morel Mushroom. The highly sought after wild Morel has quite a history of being unpredictably elusive, difficult to cultivate, and most of all... oh so delicious!
They are rich in Vitamin D, like most mushrooms, which research says at least one billion people are deficient or insufficient in. Some say there are as many as 85% people in the world who are lacking. Vitamin D is commonly known to help us absorb calcium and promote bone growth. It is also related to appetite suppression and thus weight loss. It is also correlated with reducing anxiety and depression. Makes sense because I know I am stoked when I am steep in it during the summer and don't feel the need to eat as much! Basically, I am a plant with more complex emotions. .
They are also rich in Iron, which the World Health Organization says 80% of the population are deficient in, 30% of which are at risk of anemia! Just one cup of Morels will satisfy your daily dose. About 70 percent of your body's iron is found in the red blood cells of your blood called hemoglobin and in muscle cells called myoglobin. Hemoglobin is essential for transferring oxygen in your blood from the lungs to the tissues. .
Did I mention mushrooms are amazing? .
