No-Mayo Egg Salad Sandwich

by Destini on January 29, 2013

I know it is Tuesday and what is below isn’t vegan. But I leave tomorrow and wanted to share this recipe with you before I go! It is honestly one of my favorite sandwiches. In fact I am eating it for lunch now! It is a fantastic healthy, high protein meal and tastes fantastic. *note to self, look in thesaurus for alternative adjectives* For now, fantastic will have to do!

Ingredients: Yields 4 sandwiches

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1-2T Greek yogurt
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • pinch of smoked paprika
  • 2 stalks celery, washed and chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • handful of lettuce
  • 8 slices of whole grain bread, toasted

Directions: Place eggs in pot and cover with water by a 1inch. Bring water to boil. Turn off the heat, cover and let sit for 7 minutes. Drain water, and place eggs into ice water for a couple minutes. Peel eggs, add greek yogurt, spices & lemon juice. Mash with a fork, don’t over mash! Add in green onions & celery. Place on toasted bread over lettuce.

I usually have an open face sandwich with one piece of bread. I find this to be a very filling sandwich. Also you could use Mayo instead of Greek yogurt. It is completely up to you!

I leave tomorrow bright and early at 6:30am!!, we will have to get up at 4:20am YIKES. Once again…not a morning person. This will be hard!

Talk to you all soon!

Question: What is your favorite type of sandwich? What makes it taste soo good? Or what do you usually eat for lunch?


My Week of Havoc

by Destini on March 19, 2012

This past week was one for the books. A lot going on and lot’s keeping me busy. On Wednesday I had to drop off  Tia at the vet for the day. She needed to have a urinalysis and some skin scraping. She appears to have really bad anxiety and it has been causing her to have accidents. Which is something out of the norm for her. She would be very upset after them, hiding and meowing under things and scurrying around. I felt horrible at the thought of even getting upset with her as she clearly is disciplining herself.  After all her tests, it is high anxiety and she has allergies from her cat litter (go figure). I now have her on an all natural anxiety pill and have switched her cat litter to an unscented dust free litter. Since all these change on Wednesday, no accidents have happened and she seems much more relaxed. More bratty if anything! We have been having a lot of Mad Men cuddle sessions on the couch. My girl needs her love!

Enough Tia talk.  I know I had more Irish recipes for you…but something happened. I had made this wonderful Vegan Irish Stew last Sunday, had planned to take photos of it Monday after work…what happened when I got home? Well Mr. apparently took the left overs for lunch. ACK 🙁 It’s partially my fault for not telling him I hadn’t yet taken photos. Serves me right for procrastinating.

Exercising has been the same for the last several weeks. Today I start week 4 of my Insanity workout. Can’t believe it’s already week 4! A lot of you have been asking me what exactly does Insanity consist of? So I have decided to make a post for it this week on the break down of the actual program. Maybe help you decide if you want to join in on this sweaty adventure.

I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me on Tuesday. The lovely and amazing Lindsey sent me some goodies from Trader Joe’s. I have never been so excited to open a package.

I got right into it and opened up the Cookie Butter and had a spoonful…yeah fat girl inside me got REALLLY excited. Thank you again Lindsey.

This weekend I went down to the States. I like to go down for a day trip as its only a 2.5 hour drive to Grand Forks and pick up some items that 1. Are not available to Canadians 2. The prices are so much better for health related items than our own.  I thought I would share some of my favorite finds.

Those Chili Lime Popchips are my FAVORITE kind! You can’t get them here yet. I bought three bags and one has already magically disappeared. The Coconut Chocolate Chip Clif bar is the same. Actually most of this you can’t get here. I love <3 it all! I finally got to try Choban Blood Orange greek yogurt. And it sucks that I am in love with it as I am  unable to purchase it locally. I had gotten Justin’s Maple Almond Butter in single serving packets the last time I was in the states and my husband and I both fell in love. It was a little more expensive….but we will savour it! Every last bit. I can’t wait to try that Archer Farms Coconut Macroon coffee. Doesn’t that sound just amazing? One thing about the states is they have something called Sweet Tea. Not ice tea like here…but sweet tea AND I LOVE IT. I found this semi healthy sweet tea. Organic black tea with real cane sugar. I can’t wait to have some.

Sorry for the long ramble of a post! I just wanted to share with you all about what was going on. I have a few new ideas running through my head and will be creating and sharing with you all very soon. I have a sick husband who is waiting for my attention so I must go. Have a Happy Monday!

Question: Have you tried any of those items? If so what was your favorite? What are some of your favorite items you can’t get locally? Links are welcome
