Meal of the Day: Healthy Vegan Paella

After hearing many of my friends in television and film from New York and LA swear by veganism for optimal health and beauty, I've decided to give it a shot myself. Here is a recipe for a vegan paella, made with brown rice, artichoke hearts, and peas. This is a hearty version of the traditional Spanish-favorite and one of my favorites for healthy comfort food on a cold day. It's filling and nutritious while packed with protein and turmeric, a key component of my supplement regimen.
