A delicious Asian inspired soup...

A great deal of our daily requirement for water is needed for the digestion and the elimination of waste products from the body, so achieving good hydration by drinking plenty of water and eating high water content meals like soup can help prevent constipation. This soup also includes rice noodles, which are gluten free and so are gentle on the gut lining, and chicken which is easy to digest. The chickpeas, spinach and other vegetables provide plenty of fibre and essential nutrients for good gut health.
