Healthy Egg SaladAug 04, 2021
When it comes to lunch, I’m always looking to keep it easy. This time of day, I need some energy to keep me fueled throughout the rest of the afternoon but don’t usually have the time to dedicate to anything elaborate or time-consuming.
Egg salad is something that really takes me back to my childhood, though. It’s a staple that my mom always loved, and I still find myself craving it to this day!
Obviously the main ingredient here is hard-boiled eggs, which you can choose to make yourself or buy pre-made from the grocery store. To make the perfect hard-boiled eggs, you can check out this article here!
Eggs are an ingredient that I always have on hand, as they’re so easy to make (scrambled, fried, hard boiled, you name it) and incredibly nutrient-dense. They’re full of protein and healthy fats and are linked to improvements in cholesterol, reduced risk of stroke and eye health.
For a little creaminess, I used a little bit of Forager dairy-free yogurt, but you’re welcome to use regular Greek yogurt or avocado oil-based mayo if you prefer. This, along with the dijon mustard, acts as a binder and makes your egg salad extra creamy and flavorful!
Likewise, I always like a little crunch, so I included some diced celery and dill pickles. These provide some tang as well, which is always a must for me.
For some extra flavor, garlic powder and paprika are two staples that I just think make everything better.
Just mix these ingredients together, and you’ll have a prepped lunch to last you a few days. I love making this egg salad into a sandwich, serving on top of greens or gluten-free crackers. You really can’t go wrong.
I hope you give this easy, healthy lunch a try!
