Pls dont drink this during 1st & early 2nd trimester of pregnancy. Heard it's very cold to the womb.

another soup you remind me of.. It's been long that I did not cook this soup. Can I substitute pork rib with chicken ? I dun really like pork actually. And in fact, if possible, I want to eat less meat.

24hrmom, I guess chicken should be fine. I tried to use chicken bone to boil ABC soup before, and it turned out fine. Even better than pork bones.
