WHADDA WE EATIN' WEDNESDAY - Recipe for "Avacodo Egg Salad"! So yummy and healthy!

Howdy All!

I hate that it's taken me so long to post.   Life has truly been, as they say..."CRAY CRAY!"

We are in the process of moving into a new home, which is exciting and stressful at the same time, our family has been passing around sicknesses like they're mashed potatoes at a Thanksgiving Dinner, and when you throw work, kids' activities, and all the other stuff going on...

Wait....no more excuses...who wants to hear that, anyway?!?!

It's time to share this awesome WHADDA WE EATIN' WEDNESDAY recipe!!!

This is one of my new favorite recipes for an easy and healthy weekday breakfast!   It's low carb, gluten-free, full of nutrients and protein.  It's just a winner all the way around!

I call it "AVOCADO EGG SALAD!!!!"  and I also call it...


It's very easy to make and doesn't require a lot of ingredients. 

All you need are:
6 eggs
1 avocado (ripe)
1 tsp lime juice (or to taste)
salt and pepper to taste


Here's how you make it

Hard boil your 6 eggs (put in boiling water for 15-17 minutes)

Once you finish, run your pot of boiled eggs under very cold water for a while until cooled down.
(or you can drain and cool the eggs in the fridge for a few hours or overnight)

Peel and chop the eggs into fine pieces.

Cut open your avocado, scrape out the insides, discard the pit, and chop into small pieces

Add the small pieces to the container of egg pieces and SMOOSH together!

Add lime juice and stir in.  I usually add more lime juice until it's the consistency of egg salad

Season with salt and pepper, put on top of some low carb/gluten free toast 

And that's it!  Have I mentioned how easy and good this recipe is?  I have?  Oh, ok...

But it REALLY IS so easy and so good!  haha!

This recipe makes 4-6 servings, depending on how heavily you pile it on your toast!   

The good news is that the lime juice keeps the avocados from browning as fast, but even if it's been a few days and it's a bit browned, it's still really yummy!  I wouldn't keep it longer than a few days, though...which won't be hard because it's so yummy.  I admit, I do struggle with portion control with this stuff!  It's gone fast!  

Here's a pic of the finished product.  So delicous and easy!

I got the reicipe from Johanna Soh on Youtube, who also has a lot of other great healthy recipes on her Youtube channel!  This one is definitely one of my favorites, though!   I am a huge fan of both avocados and egg salad, so this was just a perfect recipe for me!  My version is modified slightly, but not by much.

Hope you enjoy this recipe and please let me know what you think if you try it.  Did it live up to the redundant hype?!?  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll come back soon, and I'll have some more great recipes coming your way. Have a great day!
