POWER FOOD: Mushrooms
They're low in calories and are a top plant source of B-complex vitamins, including riboflavin, which helps keep skin healthy and eyesight sharp.

I used to read books by Castaneda, about Don Juan Matos and there was talk about magic mushrooms.

Wish I had a nickel for every can of cream of mushroom soup eaten growing up. Back then that was about the only way they were available until they realized there was a greater market.
