Tortilla de patatas

This is healthy and important to include in your diet because…

Eggs are a good source of not only proteins, but also vitamins and minerals. Potatoes contain a large deal of carbohydrates (which are essential to provide us energy enough), potassium, water, and fiber. The latter is crucial as it regulates the body’s use of sugars.

If onion is added, as in this case, the meal will have an antioxidant effect and this product contains both purifying and diuretic properties. They favor the elimination of liquids in the organism.

It is important however to regulate the amount of calories, which can be easily dealt with by roasting the potatoes.

Amazing gluten and lactose free meal for the entire family!
