Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Potato Soup

This year I have committed to changing the way I eat.  No more (or at least not much) processed food, cutting way back on the grains, and trying to slow down on dairy.  I feel like a million bucks and I’m staring 40 right in the eye and smiling.  I have to say that it can be hard to always make food from scratch, especially with two young children.  So my new favorite website is  PaleoPot!  Delicious recipes that I can make in the morning and have ready and waiting whenever dinnertime needs to be.  Here is my favorite…
