Mushrooms Pozole

When I decided to remove meat from my diet my mother really got surprised. We discussed several occasions on the subject. I am so happy today we can emotional freely share perspectives about eating meat. And the best, to enjoy her recipes with vegan adjustments. My journey about meat has been changing in different stages. Since I was a kid meat was the center plate, big piece of meat and the rest was small amounts of veggies. When I started to practice exercise in my 20’s, I ate meat most of the time -to gain protein, as I was said-. Afterward, in my 30’s I was suggested to follow the diet based on my blood type and meat was reinforce in my table specially chicken.
Meantime, the dryness of my eyes was dramatically increased, I visit around 10 different doctors and I didn’t have any improvement except when I was prescribed antibiotics -dryness was control but not remove-. That’s when I started a detox (three years ago) which included remove any type of meat. Dryness gone!!! So happy. I kept eating only fish and I really stigmatize other type of meat.
Today (my present – the only time I have), I feel more relax on the subject, I know there is a lot of information outside but I have to keep listening to my body which is unique.
In my country we normally eat pozole with meat instead of mushroom. We did the variation and it was really tasty I hope you enjoy it too.
