Egg Salad

For One

A great staple recipe to keep on hand, this simple egg salad is a nourishing breakfast or on-the-go lunch pick that can keep you fueled and satisfied. It is a simple recipe that is filled with flavor and texture. I make various versions of egg salad but this one is one of my favorites because I swap mayo for Greek yogurt often which adds protein and extra creaminess. The crunch from the celery and spinach makes it even more satisfying and provides a fiber boost to keep you full for longer. For busy days through the week, I like to use this egg salad in a breakfast on-the-go bento box. I build an egg salad sandwich and pair it with a side of yogurt parfait ingredients( Greek yogurt, nuts, and berries) for a balanced breakfast meal!
