Spring time is a great time to switch up your lunch and dinner recipes, now that seasonal ingredients such as asparagus, avocados, carrots, and zucchini are in.
For the freshest ingredients, I like to stroll through the farmers markets nearby. You can usually tell what’s in season by the prices. Items that are out of season will be more expensive, while in-season fruits and veggies will be in surplus and on the cheaper end. So if you’re not near a farmers market, that’s usually how you can tell when shopping at your local grocery store.
With that said, here are my favorite easy paleo recipes that are deliciously healthy and perfect for the spring!
Roasted Asparagus with Prosciutto

This super easy, simple and delicious recipe is from StupidEasyPaleo.com. All you have to do is crisp the prosciutto before roasting the asparagus, then crumble the prosciutto on top, sprinkle on some orange zest, and voilà! This dish can be used as an appetizer or as a side dish with dinner.
Citrus Avocado and Beet Zoodles Salad

This Italian Tart is absolutely delicious! The recipe is from FurtherFood.com, and takes only a minute or less to prepare (depending on how fast you are!). Made with zucchini, beets, avocados, cherry tomatoes, carrots, and your choice of greens, you can enjoy a light salad that will keep you full for hours.

This recipe from Paleo with Mrs P takes about 30 minutes total to prep and cook, and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or brunch. I love these fritters because they are made with just a few simple ingredients such as eggs, zucchini, crushed almonds (or almond powder), and spring onion, but still taste absolutely amazing and with so much flavor!
