paleo egg roll bowl

This Paleo Egg Roll in a Bowl is one of those recipes that is on REPEAT in our home. If you’re looking for a paleo low-carb Asian noodles dish, you NEED to make this!


This Paleo Egg Roll in a Bowl recipe combines all the delicious egg roll ingredients - ground meat, cabbage and carrots, and a sweet & savory sauce - and creates a quick low-carb meal! It’s so much easier than dealing with rice paper to make rolls. Plus, this noodle dish reheats well and is ready in about 30 minutes!



Why You’ll Love This Easy Paleo Egg Roll in a Bowl


This Egg Roll in a Bowl dish is a favorite for my nutrition clients. It’s high protein, low carb, gluten-free, satisfying and quick.


This is also a great dish if you are aiming to increase your protein intake. I like to double the meat to make it a particularly high protein dish. You can keep all other ingredients the same, just add another pound of animal protein. In that case, this makes about 6 servings with more than 30g of protein per serving!


Egg Roll Bowls are a perfect option for anyone on a gut healing protocol, if you are trying to lower your carbohydrate intake, or are on a low-carb diet. The secret ingredient to make the dish satisfying - yet still low-carb - are the shirataki noodles. Have you ever tried these?


If “zoodles” (zucchini noodles) aren't your jam, these chewy Japanese shirataki noodles are a great low-carb, gluten-free, paleo & vegan option.



Shirataki noodle health benefits


  • LOW-CARB: Most shirataki noodles are zero net carbs and gluten-free. They are perfect for keto, paleo and grain-free diets.

  • GOOD FOR CONSTIPATION. Shirataki noodles are made mostly of water and konjac glucomannan, which is a type of fiber that comes from the root of a plant. Konjac glucomannan is a viscous soluble fiber, meaning it's the type of fiber that forms a gel in the intestines once it comes into contact with water. Other foods high in viscous fiber include oats and psyllium husk. Konjac glucomannan is one of the most viscous fiber types, so it can be helpful for constipation, especially if you’re struggling to get enough fiber in your diet.

  • KEEPS YOU FULL. Because of the viscous fiber, these noodles move through your digestive system very slowly, which helps you feel full.

  • FEED GUT BACTERIA. The viscous fiber also functions as a prebiotic feeding the bacteria living in your colon.


What do shirataki noodles taste like?

I LOVE it. The noodles are not going to replace your fettuccini in an Italian dish, but shirataki are delicious in Asian-style dishes, or even soups. They are slightly chewy - some might say slimy... but I would compare the texture to something like seaweed. Strange, but good.


How do you cook with shirataki noodles?

Well, one of the best parts is that you DON'T have to cook them! Just open the package, rinse and add to whatever you're making. You can toss in a sauce, add to soup, sauté to warm, or eat as a cold noodle dish.


Are shirataki noodles healthy for everyone?

Since they are so high in fiber, you might want to start gradually: for some, the glucomannan in shirataki noodles may cause digestive issues, such as loose stools, bloating and gas.
