Gumbo has a rich and deep history, that originated from the south of Louisiana.  Gumbo consists primarily of a strongly-flavoured stock, meat or shellfish, a thickener.  With three main vegetables namely celery, bell peppers, and onions.  Basically it is a soup.   You can play with the ingredients and slant the flavour to what you want, just like this Shrimp gumbo recipe.

This shrimp gumbo is a great paleo recipe dish.  The great thing about soup is if you make enough you can freeze it.  That way you have more available for lunches or dinner when you need it.
