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.

Clean Eating Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe

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 are concerned about clean eating mayo, you can either make it, or try this brand (affiliate link)..

And if you aren’t sure about clean breads, here’s an article that will help.

    Tiffany, mayo is clean? On the bread, I always eat organic, sprouted grain bread because I thought that was the only clean bread but you don’t mention that. So am I wrong to stay away from mayo and regular bread in order to eat clean?
    Thank you for your blog and recipes. I use them a lot.
