This healthy Egg Salad Sandwich is a perfect lunch idea for the kids or yourself!
For me, egg salad sandwiches are a family tradition. My mom loved them dearly and still does, so I grew up with them.
There was a long period when I wanted nothing to do with them. But age does funny things to your taste buds, and now, I can’t seem to get enough of them either!
I try to eat low carb most days, so I will typically eat just the egg salad. But for school or work lunches, making a sandwich out of it makes a perfectly filling and nutritious lunch!
To make sure the fats were healthy, I simply subbed some smooshed avocado for most of the mayo. Easy and still tastes like egg salad!
And if you aren’t sure about clean breads, here’s an article that will help.
