So, as you know, I am doing the 24 day challenge.
I am L O V I N G being in the kitchen practically 24/7 and creating new recipes.
Being in the kitchen with a good playlist on Pandora is my happy place!
I am able to "get lost" in cooking and relax!
Yesterday, my girlfriends and I took a trip to Knoxville. This would be the first time I would eat out since being on the 24day challenge. Thank god for Zoe's Kitchen! I could get my favorite meal, an egg salad sandwich. After eating there, I knew I could make it even healthier myself at home.
Here is what I created today.
2 T Olive Oil Mayo
Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning
1/3 c purple onion
Boil 8 eggs
To boil eegs: place 8 eggs in a pot and fill pot with water. Place your pot on the stove and let it boil for apprx. 10 min. After boiling, place a bunch of ice in a colander , put hard boiled eggs on top, and place more ice on top of eggs. Let it stand for like 10 more min.
While eggs are chilling, chop up about 1/3 c of purple onion.
Peel eggs and wash off with cold water.
Take out 4 egg yolks and leave 4 eggs whole.
Put eggs in glass container or bowl.
Mash up the eggs really well with a fork.
Put 2 T of olive oil mayo
add in 1/3 c purple onion
sprinkle about 1/2 lime worth of juice over mixture
sprinkle about 1 T Mrs. Dash Southwest Chiptole on top
Refrigerate because egg salad is MUCH better cold!
Place on top of a slice of low-sodium Ezekiel bread
