For a lot of people, Paleo means meat. Lots of meat. While that’s certainly true, the Paleo philosophy values balance in everything from nutrition to activity and leisure. This diet also allows for plenty of vegetables! Some dishes will be just as tasty the next day, so look for the Double up note and enjoy the leftovers!

To avoid getting bored with your go-to meat and salad combo, here are some great vegetarian Paleo recipes that are low-carb and tummy-friendly. Best news: most are 19 carbs or less per serving.

Breakfast

Paleo Egg Muffins  (Timesaver: Double up)

Start your day with these filling little gems. You can save time not only by doubling the recipe, but by prepping the muffin tins the night before. At only 52 calories and 11 carbs per serving, feel free to go back for seconds. (11 carbs per serving)

Lunch

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes (Timesaver: Double up)

Get creative with a classic go-to vegetable. Sweet potatoes are packed with nutrition, but they can get old when always prepared in on or two ways. Paired with the right stuffing, this new take on an old standby might outshine the main course. (39 carbs per serving)

Dinner

Harissa Portobello Mushroom “Tacos”

These nearly carb-free tacos will complement a variety of lean proteins. Weighing in at only 195 calories per serving, you’ll be able to eat a recommended 3- or 4-ounce portion of bison or pork and enjoy a 500-calorie dinner! (12 carbs per serving)

Snacks/Sides

Mini Balsamic Mushroom Caps

A simple, flavorful appetizer – and you get to eat with your hands! (19 carbs per serving)

Roasted Spaghetti Squash and Kale

This update of a classic pasta dish has 10% of your protein RDA! (19 carbs per serving)

These recipes they require about the same prep time as the classics in your repertoire. Bonus: they can be served as appetizers, small plates, or as an accompaniment to your favorite entrees.

If your budget and shelf space allow, shop for as much as you can to prepare extra portions for each member of your household. Keeping extra portions of healthy meals on hand can make it easier to avoid the foods that trigger the discomfort of intestinal gas and bloating.
