Meatless Mushroom Pho Soup sounds fancy and tastes amazing.  This Mushroom soup was part of my post brain surgery recovery meal plan because it’s detoxifying, anti-inflammatory and full of nutrients.  Meatless meals are a good way to reduce meat intake which helps reduce inflammation in the body and saves money on your grocery bills.  Here are few Meat Free Meals and Protein Alternative recipes for more meatless meal ideas.
