Avocado Egg Salad

I got 4 chickens a few weeks ago.  I knew I would enjoy having them, but I seriously have become a CRAZY CHICKEN LADY.  Yes, I’ve even looked at sweaters for my chickens online!!  They are the first thing I think about when I wake up, and the last thing I think about when I go to bed.  I LOVE my chickens!!

My girls have been good to me, producing 3-4 eggs per day.  So needless to say, we’ve been eating a lot of eggs and been giving some away.  The other day I did a trade with a friend.  She has some beautiful collard greens she traded me for some eggs.  I knew I wanted to use them to make a wrap of some kinds, so I decided to put a spin on egg salad and it came out delicious!

Avocado Egg Salad

4 Hard boiled eggs mashed
1 Avocado mashed
1 Tablespoon of Avocado Oil or Olive Oil
4-5 Sprigs of fresh Dill
2-3 chopped scallions
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Simple as that!  You could eat this on it’s own, in bread, on crackers or like I did, wrapped in greens and added some tomato.

An easy nutrient dense meal, which was great when I needed a quick lunch.  It has been so hot here, I haven’t have much of an appetite.  This has been the prefect meal to enjoy on those hot days.  Especially when you don’t really feel like chopping up veggies for a salad or using the oven.  

Do you have a favorite egg recipe?  Feel free to it share below.

In love and magic

The Perfect Paleo Chicken Salad

Saturday morning I had to rush out the door for an appointment.  I didn’t have time to make my normal superfood smoothie for breakfast.  I had a half of an avocado and some chicken left over in the fridge.  So I got the idea to make a chicken salad.  I added the chicken, avocado, mixed in some lemon juice and sea salt…. it was DELICIOUS!  So I decided when I got home to make another batch and kick it up a notch!

It is my new favorite go to lunch/snack/dinner!

Next time I might try adding in some different type of herb, like basil or maybe curry.  So many options!!!
