Mushroom Bread-Are you eating mushroom or bread?

Have you ever heard of mushroom bread? Basically you may think that it’s a kind of bread that is made of by mushroom? Haha.. The answer is, on the conttrary, obviously no. Because neither of it is made of mushroom, actually. However, it’s just a kind of bread that looks like a real mushroom on its appearance. Therefore, it is very cute in appearance while with a good taste, it’s kind of a dessert that you can not resist.

The efficacies of the dessert mushroom bread

The mushroom bread today we make contains walnuts and sesames. So it’s high in nutrition, but do you know how nutritional this kind of dessert? Let’s have a see.

First of all, let us talk about the walnuts. Walnut is a sort of nuts which is dubbed as the king of the nuts. According to American dietetic association, they suggest people eat walnuts 2 or 3 times once a week. Especially the elderly and postmenopausal women, because walnuts contains arginine, oleic acid and antioxidants, which are beneficial for protecting cardiovascular and preventing coronary heart disease, stroke, dementia and etc. however, do not eat walnuts too much per one time, for it would affect people’s digestion.

Second, eat walnuts frequently is able to benefit not only the nutrition of our brains, but also the improvement of our intellect. So I think it is meaningful because walnut’s appearance is just like our brain, with so many “moats” that could really help our brains’ development with age growing.

Third, walnuts are beneficial for whitening our skins. The elderly who have skin aging problems should eat walnuts routinely. And walnuts are also helpful for anti-aging. In medical treatment, walnuts are used as the adjuvant for curing neurasthenia. Furthermore, walnuts can postpone the recession of memory.

Last but not the least, people who are affected by cholelith disease are persuaded to eat walnuts due to walnuts are good for the disease and also could probably avoid the pain of surgery.

On one hand, we have talked about the effects of walnuts, and on the other hand, let’s talk about the efficacies of sesame. Yet high in so many nutritional items especially iron, as well as 100g sesames contain 50mg iron. So, sesame has the best function of enriching the blood.

At the same time, sesame contains large oil and grease which is good for the pregnant women who have constipation problem.
