We all have those comfort foods that we loved as a child- mac & cheese, ice cream cones, tater tot casserole, etc. So what does a health-conscious adult do when that once beloved food pops up as a food craving? Ignore it and suffer? Indulge in it and feel guilty afterwards? Nope! Make a healthy version, of course!
Egg Salad Sandwiches: not a food we normally think of as healthy. But just like any other comfort food, they can be. Switch out the typically chemical-laden processed ingredients for their organic & whole food counterparts, and you’ll feel satisfied & happy.
Now this was my first attempt at egg salad, and I must warn you I’m not one to measure. (I’d have a whole lot more recipes for you if I did!) So these are just estimates. But this leaves room for you to get creative and make it your own!
6 hardboiled organic eggs (free of pesticides, GMO’s, and growth hormones)
About 1/3 cup organic mayo (I like spectrum organics- with healthier simple non-GMO ingredients like egg, vinegar, mustard, & lemon- instead of the toxic big name brands full of MSG, preservatives, and genetically modified ingredients)
Paprika (look for organic and/or non-irradiated)
Green onions or chives, chopped (look for fresh, or non-irradiated dried)
Sea salt & black pepper (instead of iodized table salt, which can cause bloating and edema)
Yellow mustard (look for simple ingredients without preservatives)
Dark green leafies like chard, arugula, or kale (instead of iceburg)
Organic spouted bread (instead of processed wheat bread, which contributes to many diseases and weight gain)
In a medium sized bowl, chop the peeled eggs into chunks. Mix in the mayo. Sprinkle desired amounts of paprika, onions/chives, and yellow mustard. The right amounts of these ingredients should make the egg salad a nice bright yellow color as pictured here, dotted with colorful greens. Season to taste with the sea salt and pepper.
That’s it! Now serve it on sprouted organic bread (I’m using Angelic brand in this picture) and top with dark colored leafy greens. Enjoy your healthy classic childhood treat!
