I admit, it’s kind of silly to even suggest that there’s a “best gut healing soup.” Any REAL soup, made from real, homemade bone broth, has powerful gut healing qualities.  There are literally, thousands of examples from traditional cuisines all around the world.

I really wish there was a better English translation for “samlor machu” which is Khmer (the language spoken in Cambodia) for “sour soup.” It’s really not THAT sour and there’s a lot more going on besides just the sour flavor – hints of sweet, salty, spicy […]
