Some of you may have collected mushrooms from the woods while others venture only to the supermarket for the exotic and common varieties. But have you ever wondered if mushrooms are healthy for you? We will take a look at a variety of edible mushrooms to learn about their nutritional benefits and how they can be a valuable addition to your meals.

Sylvia Emberger began her career as a microbiologist, working in research and teaching. She later became a registered dietitian and worked in long-term care as a clinical nutrition and food service consultant. Emberger was at the Hershey Company in nutrition research and product labeling and a corporate nutritionist for GIANT Food Stores providing expertise on product nutrition, recipe development and writing articles for consumers. Now retired, she enjoys cooking and baking, taking walks in the woods, reading, sewing and making lavender wands.
