Crustless Quiche With Mushroom Asparagus And Broccoli

It’s that time of the year again! The Power of Pink campaign is back. We’re enjoying the mushrooms from our pink punnets with mushroom asparagus and broccoli crustless quiche.

The South African Mushroom Farmers’ Association and Reach for Recovery once again bring you The Power of Pink Campaign. Pink punnets of mushrooms are back in Pick ‘n Pay stores, with R1 from every punnet sold going towards Reach for Recovery’s Ditto Project.

R1 from every pink punnet of fresh mushrooms sold nationally at Pick n Pay stores during October is donated to R4R’s Ditto Project.  The sole objective of this very special project is to provide free silicone prostheses to breast cancer survivors who cannot afford reconstruction after the life-altering and heartbreaking reality of a mastectomy.

How Can Mushrooms Prevent Breast Cancer?

Whilst fresh mushrooms and breast cancer have a strong humanitarian connection in South Africa, there is another scientific link between fresh mushrooms and the fight against breast cancer.

In 2010, the Beckman Institute at the City of Hope Cancer Centre in California found that eating just 10g of mushrooms a day more than halved people’s risk of developing breast cancer. That’s means eating just one fresh mushroom a day, is a staggeringly easy step in self-care to avoid the ravages of such a terrible disease.
