In cold winter days, there’s nothing better than a soup to warm up. And this is just one of the advantages that soup brings us.

Another one is that soup almost makes a meal.

Soup is great for those who are on diet: it helps to quench hunger, we eat less and so we can control weight. Some nutritionists say that, at dinner, you just have to eat a bowl of soup with a slice of bread (preferably rye) with cheese.

But soup it is also very important in children’s diet. Every meal should start with the vegetables, vitamins and, minerals that the soup gives us. Besides, you can keep in the refrigerator or freeze in individual doses what is left over. In my home, my kids always start a meal with soup…

One way to avoid soups with potatoes is to replace the potatoes with cauliflower.

Cauliflower is often considered one of the healthiest foods on Earth and there are so many benefits of this vegetable: helps reduce cancer risk, fights inflammation, decreases risk for heart disease and brain disorders, provides high levels of vitamins and minerals (especially vitamin C and vitamin K), aids in weight loss…

I love to use cauliflower in soups because it gives it a extremely creamy texture… I´ll hope you try it and let me know what do you think…
