Why Bother With A Low Carb Paleo Paella?


Because it's delicious...


Paella is a traditional Spanish rice dish known for its rich flavours and vibrant colours. While traditionally made with rice, this Paleo adaptation uses cauliflower rice, making it lower in carbohydrates and reducing the calorie load compared to the original version.


This means you can indulge in the comforting goodness of paella without spiking your blood sugar or feeling the heaviness that rice can bring.





Cauliflower Rice Benefits:


Cauliflower rice is a versatile ingredient that has gained popularity in recent years due to its low-carbohydrate and low-calorie nature.


By substituting traditional rice with cauliflower rice, you significantly reduce the number of carbohydrates consumed, helping to regulate blood sugar levels and prevent the sudden spikes associated with high-glycemic foods.


Additionally, cauliflower rice is rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals, making it a nutritious alternative.
