Clean Eating; Cauliflower Soup

With the start of a New Year my family (Kelli's) decided to really focus on eating more healthy..... the best way we discovered to do this was by "Eating Clean". We follow these two rules.... one, the food we eat must come from mother nature and two, it must of had a mother.  Meaning it had to of grown out of the ground or off a tree/plant and something had to give birth to it (i.e....eggs, fish...etc.) It has started with baby steps, each day we try and make the best menu decision for our family. There are a lot of great website that have "clean" recipes to get you started. Here is a very simple soup that has great taste!
