Health benefits of paella


When we think of Spain, paella is one of the first things that come to mind.

Paella is a very famous Spanish dish, but did you know that paella is not only affordable and tasty but also very healthy?

Regular paella is a mix of rice, vegetables, meat and/or fish and this provides us with many essential nutrients. It is also low in cholesterol and saturated fats as the little fat it contains comes from olive oil which is well known for its fabulous healthy properties.

This popular dish is also high in fibre (as it contains vegetables and rice) and provides long lasting energy levels as it contains slow-release carbs.  This means that we will feel satisfied longer and we won’t have unhealthy cravings for a while.

Paella is a healthy and typical Mediterranean dish that should be included in our diet.

If you love paella and you are currently on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa, or you are planning to visit us soon, you will certainly be happy to know that every week we offer two different paella options in our Restaurante Orlando and that from November there will also be vegetarian paella available.

Have a good holiday with us and enjoy the amazing dishes our fabulous chefs cook daily with love!
