Skillet filled with roasted mushrooms

Roasted Garlic and Chive Mushrooms

In my experience as a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist, adding mushrooms to a meal tends to be largely overlooked. Yet, mushrooms are a fantastic option for several reasons. 

You don't have to worry about adding them to your carb count (if you count carbs). They're also heart-healthy because they're low in sodium and fat. This recipe can be used as a side dish or top a protein like fish, chicken, or beef.
