Trader Joe’s Marinated Mushrooms with Garlic

If I didn’t love mushrooms I wouldn’t eat these things. They have more than three times the salt to the Potassium and frankly are reasonably unhealthy. Calorically you can eat lots of them because they are only ten calories per two ounce serving.

I think I use less than two ounces in my salads because these little things have a strong flavor. They taste like vinegar and garlic, but then mushrooms really taste like almost nothing so what do you expect?

On the up side, if I’m eating these I’m eating salad which means I may trick myself into thinking I’m having something good for me. The lesson of the day kids is read the label and use moderate amounts.
