The bright yellow paella covers the daily requirement of vitamin B6, which our protein metabolism and nervous system need for their work, with just one portion. The vitamin D content is also impressive - indispensable for skin and bones as well as powerful muscles.
If you like, you can add a handful of crabs at the end. The iodine supplied in this way is vital for the thyroid gland and does not occur very often or often only in small quantities.
