Egg Salad


EGG SALAD

I have to say I  love egg salad. I’ve been on a mission to find a way to make a healthy version. 

I made this recipe a couple days ago and its so good! And to be honest, there really isn’t anything super special about this recipe. It’s just egg salad, but that’s what makes it perfect?

To increase the protein in this recipe I added full-fat Greek yogurt to the egg salad.

I like to get, at the very least, 25 g of protein at every meal. So adding in a little extra never hurt anyone.

This egg salad will keep you full when you eat with fibrous veggies to it. Below I have added some suggestions to bulk up the fiber (fiber keeps you full, turns off hunger hormones, and supports digestion and gut health).

HERE’S YOUR MACRO BREAKDOWN

PROTEIN | eggs + Greek yogurt

FAT | egg yolks + mayo

FIBER | not really anything – you definitely need to pair this with lots of raw veggies and/or high fiber crackers so you can get your fiber on.
