Healthy Tuna Salad – Great for Lunch

by Destini on March 10, 2014

So its Monday and for most of us, we’re back at work! One thing I personally search for the most on the internet is simple, healthy, YUMMY lunches. I know my mayo-free egg salad sandwich has been a HUGE hit for so many of you, so why not take another popular lunch item, turn it into something……AWESOME.

George and I ate this everyday for work for SEVERAL weeks! It turns a rather cliche lunch into something super flavourful and delicious!

Best part is you can omit the mayo and replace it with plain greek yogurt!!

I hope everyone has a  good MONDAY!

Cheers

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?
