Looking for healthy paleo lunch recipes? Try these crispy vegetable cakes! Packed with fiber and protein, they will keep hunger at bay and leave you craving for more. All you need are simple ingredients like courgette, spinach, garlic, eggs, and spices. Personally, I love this paleo recipe because of its simplicity.
Paleo crispy vegetable cakes are a great choice for lunch or dinner. You can also enjoy them as a snack or a healthy appetizer. If you have unexpected guests, look no further. These treats are ready within minutes and can feed a large crowd. You don’t even need to follow the recipe exactly; if one or more ingredients are missing from your fridge, use leftovers or whatever you have at hand.
My favorite vegetable cake recipe is paleo friendly, grain free, and gluten free. Courgette, one of its key ingredients, has only 33 calories per piece. This amount also delivers 14 percent of the RDA of potassium, 58 percent of the RDA of vitamin C, 15 percent of the RDA of vitamin B6, 2.4 grams of protein, and six grams of carbs. Courgette are rich in vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants as well as folic acid.
This delicious lunch recipe also contains onions, garlic, and almond flour. Onions support immune function and kill harmful bacteria. Garlic has natural antibiotic, antiviral, and antioxidant properties. Almond flour is high in omega-3s, dietary fiber, and protein, and provides the most calcium of all nut flours. Due to its high content of monounsaturated fats, it lowers inflammation and protects your heart.
