    Mushrooms in the Atkins Diet
    Mushrooms are part of the foundation salad vegetables which should provide the bulk of the daily carbohydrate intake while following the Atkins program. Raw mushrooms can be added to a salad or you can throw a few slices of mushrooms to an omelet or frittata. Alternatively, you can cook sliced mushrooms and use them as a tasty garnish or in a sauce to accompany your serving of chicken or steak.
    Portobello Mushrooms
    A portobello mushroom contains 18 calories, 0.3 g fat, 1.8 g protein, 3.3 g carbohydrates and 1.1 g fiber, for a total of 2.2 g of net carbs. Portobello caps can be used instead of bread or dough to prepare Atkins-friendly mini-pizzas, eggs benedict or as a bun for a low-carb burger. It is a versatile and delicious vegetable to add to your Atkins eating plan.
