Simple One Pot Paella

It’s so important for me to give you guys one pot meals. Because cooking shouldn’t be about spending enormous amounts of time in the kitchen. It should be about quick, easy and simple ways to enhance your mood and health. Spending just 30 min to an hour in meditation, creating something flavorful and nutrient dense with your hands.  The goal is more productive time in the kitchen, which doesn’t mean more time. So that you can go and do the things you love while feeling like your best and most energized self! Okay enough, chatting, recipe below!

  • 2 cups cauliflower rice
