My Egg Salad Recipe For Healthy Eating!
As a food advocate, I am often asked for good nutrition tips. One of my favorites is my healthy egg salad recipe. As we all know, good nutrition tips and exercise are important and, mostly important to do together. I'm often asked whether it's harder to change diet or begin an exercise program. I actually believe it is more difficult to begin a serious and dedicated exercise regimen because we can always find good nutrition tips for goods that are tasty, we enjoy eating, and that are healthy. So here goes, my famous healthy egg salad recipe:
Salads are a great light meal and eggs are the perfect protein. So why not try egg salad for a change? Egg Salad is a great anytime meal; breakfast, lunch or dinner. However, there has been so much negative press about egg yolks that this is almost a forgotten delicacy….with a few tweaks I have made it a worthwhile meal or snack option! You can make it ahead and take with you on the go. Here is my recipe; feel free to change it up with different spices and experiment with flavor.
- 4 hard-boiled large eggs – peeled and chopped
- 8 hard-boiled egg whites – peeled and chopped with yolks removed
- 2 tablespoons low fat mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream or Greek yogurt
- 3-4 tablespoons minced fresh herbs, such as parsley, dill, chives, and/or tarragon
- 1/8 cup Vidalia Onion – minced
- 3/4 cup chopped celery
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice – or to taste
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Romaine lettuce leaves & sliced tomatoes
- 8 slices whole-grain bread or whole grain pita pockets
In a bowl stir together all ingredients except bread with salt and pepper to taste until combined well.? Make 4 sandwiches, pressing bread slices together gently or by stuffing pita pockets. You can layer the romaine lettuce, tomatoes and egg salad. Open faced sandwiches are another great option. Enjoy!
Immediately after boiling the eggs, place in sink and soak eggs in ice water as you crack and peel.? The cold water makes the egg super easy to peel.
Also- I like to cut my fresh herbs with kitchen shears – it makes a challenging task fast and simple….be sure to cut very small……
Finally- if I am having the egg salad as a snack or do not want a sandwich- this egg salad is great on top of salad greens!!!
