Okay so here is a delicious throwback healthy recipe that I wanted to re-introduce to you guys! This egg white and avocado salad is a total go-to of mine for easy weekly healthy lunches because it’s healthy and full of flavor and has ZERO added mayo! Well! Insert here the new and much improved guilt-free egg salad sandwich! Now, let’s continue on.
Oh yes and there is BACON.
I kept this low in calories by only using egg whites and subbed the oh so beloved mayo for a combination of mashed avocado, Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard. One word folks….CREEEAMY. I then added some green onions, celery, some crunchy turkey bacon and voila! Absolute deliciousness. I personally like to make open-faced sandwiches out of mine on top of a little arugula, but you could totally eat this plain, over a big salad, in a wrap – really however you’d like! It makes the perfect, low-calorie, completely clean, healthy lunch that you won’t feel so guilty eating.
Once again let me stress to you (because I know I’ll be getting a few comments or messages about this…), the majority of the fat in this recipe (and by majority I mean pretty much ALL of it) comes strictly from the avocado which is a healthy fat, so don’t be afraid of it! I LOVE avocados and they are a total winner in this recipe.
This egg white salad will only last about 3 days in the fridge and you’ll need to make sure to cover it securely with plastic wrap so that the mashed avocado doesn’t start to brown. This is another reason I added a little lemon juice, to prevent from browning! I actually like to press the plastic wrap into the salad (so that it touches) when covering which really seems to seal in the freshness. Let me know how you all like this!
