Paleo Paella

This is definitely a dish to feed the masses! This one pot meal is a paleo take on Spanish Paella that can be completely customized! This recipe is a great way to use up some of those leftover veggies you have in the refrigerator and feed your entire family!

The protein in this meal gives you a satisfying feeling and is loaded with vitamin B12 which plays a role in cardiovascular health, DNA production, the brain and nervous system (brain fog anyone?), and energy production.

Not a big shellfish fan? Swap it out with proteins you prefer or just add more nutrient packed vegetables!
