The Healthier Egg Salad SUCCESS!

This morning, I went to the gym for a Body Works Class, and got my booty kicked! I’m going to be sore tomorrow!

When I came home, I relaxed a little, had some coffee (re-hydrated, haha), blogged around, and then made some lunch

It worked! It worked! It worked!

Yesterday, I had a pretty much fail of an egg salad recipe, when I tried to leave out the mayo

Today, I was determined to give it another shot, using different ingredients, and oh my gosh! It was sooo good!

First, I concocted a little sauce for the eggs, in place of mayo:

  • 1 tbsp. non-fat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. EVOO
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • shake o’ salt & 2 shakes o’ peppa

Mix all of the above together, then add in your two hard boiled eggs and chop it all up

The honey allowed me to use less yogurt, because it helped everything stick together, and instead of giving it that sour yogurt taste, it added a sweetness to it, that made me feel as if I was eating this on honey wheat toast. Seriously, so good! I am so happy I found a way to kick the mayo!

I lightly toasted two pieces of organic, multi-grain bread, topped them each with a little egg salad, a few spinach leaves

Now, I have to try this same recipe (there’s no way I can abandon this one) with tuna, and chicken salad!

Are you going to try this recipe at home?

  1. My tummy literally growled. I think it needs this. This is definitely on my must try list after this 7 Day Slim Down is done!

    • Yes! Do you have pinterest?! Pin it so you don’t forget! I want your tastebuds to be as happy as mine 😉 If you don’t have pinterest, you have to get one! 😉 (If you do, and I am following you, I am silly- there are just so many people on there!)

  2. Oh my word. This looks SO good… I’ll definitely have to try it!

  3. That sounds fantastic! It’s been awhile since I have had egg salad, going to have to give it a try.
