I know, I know, I know what you are thinking… “what happened to your white plate?!” It’s been a wacky week. With all three of my boys in school, I am on my third week of college and it’s the first time in nine years I am home alone for more than thirty minutes. So I decided to change things up and change the plate. Don’t worry though, white plates are still my favorite and will be back.
After my gym work-out, I had to get my protein in, and what better way than a quick avocado egg salad? It’s that simple avocado+egg, well and three other ingredients, but it’s a simple salad and it will fill you up. Super healthy and nutritional. How do you get your protein in?
Now, let’s talk about how each ingredient in this salad supports your health!
As you already know, eggs help the body by managing a healthy weight. The egg white is full of vitamins such as B3 and B2. It contains 60% of the total protein of the egg and 90% of the total vitamin B3. The egg yolk contains generous amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin which both benefit the eyes!
When we look into avocado, research shows that avocados are full of nothing but good stuff! The good stuff in avocado includes the excessive amounts of nutrients in it such as fiber, vitamin K, B5. B6, C and folate potassium. And along with all that, dill will help with digestion and benefit the immune system.
I hope you’ll enjoy this simple, beneficial salad.
So, let’s make it! What do I need?
Hard-boiled eggs are low in calories and are filled with B vitamins.
Avocado fills you with potassium and fiber.
Mayonnaise contains vitamins K and E.
Lemon juice helps to clear the skin and gives you vitamin C.
Along with those ingredients, you will need salt and fresh dill.
