We love egg roll in our house, but my stomach does not...nor does my body the next day from the food hangover I get. So I decided we are going to make it health...naturally.
As you may know, we are also HUGE fans of bowls in our house...when my wife reads this she will roll her eyes, she HATES bowls. lol So until she decides to cook regularly and anything besides mac n cheese....we will keep eating bowls.
This recipe is ideal for those that love the taste of egg rolls, but want to stick to a healthier option. My goal with this recipe was to keep it simple as possible, while turning this traditional recipe into a paleo eater’s dream! With only thirty minutes to prep and cook, this may be your favorite go-to dish for a healthy dinner option. This recipe also makes for perfect meal prep!
