SERIOUSLY? Avocado Egg Salad BLT

eggavocadoHOLY GOD, THIS IS DELICIOUS.

If you’re an avocado fan, and if you’re an egg salad fan… you have NOT lived until you’ve made this sandwich.

I stumbled across something similar to this on one of the fitness pages I follow on Instagram. Ummm…Instadrool! I put a little twist on it and am hooked.

Avocado Egg Salad Ingredients

2 Avocados

6-8 Hard Boiled Eggs (protein, yay!)

2 Tablespoons Sweet Relish

Scallions

Grey Poupon Mustard (eyeball it)

Pepper

The relish, mustard and the moisture from the avocado are all you need to make the perfect texture! No need for mayo, which is where all the unnecessary calories come from in regular egg salads.

I toasted up a 100% whole wheat bun (tore out some of the insides Рwould be even better on whole wheat flat bread), and topped it with cooked turkey bacon, lettuce, tomato, the egg salad and a little bit of pepper. Voilà! My new favorite!

Cravings

Don’t you hate when you are on a health kick but you have one of those days where you would like nothing more than to dive head first into a pool filled with saucy buffalo wings, greasy pizza and maybe even some cheesy nachos? Yea, me too.

I would kill for a plate of wings for dinner tonight but I know that tomorrow’s Katie will be kicking herself. I know that it’s OK to spoil yourself now and then but I promised myself that I would save the bad calories for the weekend.

20130424-155510.jpgSO, I headed to Pinterest (obviously), and found a cheater’s “buffalo wing”¬†recipe. The kicker? The chicken part is actually cauliflower. Now, I know this probably doesn’t sound very appetizing to the saucy fried chicken lover. Trust me, I am one of them and would be lying if I said I am not a tad weary to try this mysterious recipe and taint my love for the buffalo-y goodness of real wings. But I am picturing my beach bod and am crossing all fingers and toes that this may actually be halfway decent.

Wish me luck!
