Two Shitake Recipes

#1: Shitake Mushroom, Spinach and Onion Sautee.

Fresh shitake mushrooms need almost no seasoning to taste good. I cut them into small strips and heat up my crepe pan. It's a nice non-stick pan so no oil is even needed. I add spinach, garlic and onion and mix everything until the spinach shrinks and the shitakes look juicy and meaty. I add a dash of salt and pepper and that's all is needed. It goes well with my soy steamed fish.

#2: Shitake Omlette

If I had egg whites I would've used it instead. Again my fresh shitake mushrooms do wonders on just about anything with very little need for seasoning. I heated up the shitake mushrooms on my crepe pan once again. I added some onions, beat 2 eggs and poured it over the sizzling mushrooms. And there I had the freshest tasting omelette in my life.


  1. Hey there,

    my overall comment is that to lose weight it does come down to calories expended vs. consumed. The good thing about that is that as you increase the calories expended you can increase the calories consumed. You just want to make sure you on average consume less than you expend.

    I started working out with a neighbor in June. She is 5'9 and weighed 155lbs. In six months she dropped 17 lbs and 3 sizes. She also reduced her body fat from over 30% to 22%. We do weights and cardio 3x week and eat sensibly.

    My advice would be to include some moderate exercise in your plan. The great thing about the human body is that is becomes more efficient with exercise.

  2. Hey Leslie, thanks so much :)

    Where do you work out? I'm going to keep chipping away until my body becomes more efficient.
