    Avocado Egg Salad

    Linda, I just found this recipe and wanted to know if this would work for P3 Week 2?


    Avocado Egg Salad
    Servings: 6 Size: 1/2 cup

    Ingredients:

    4 large hard-boiled eggs, chopped
    4 hard boiled egg whites, chopped (discard the rest)
    1 medium hass avocado, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1 tbsp Mayonnaise
    1 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
    1/2 tablespoon finely chopped chives
    2 tsp. red wine vinegar
    1/2 tsp Kosher salt
    pinch freshly ground pepper

    Directions:

    Combine the egg yolks with the avocado, mayo, yogurt, chives, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mash with a fork. Combine with egg whites and adjust salt as needed.

    All except the wine vinegar is fine. I believe it has sugar in it. Check the label. Also, cut down on the egg yolks. Too much fat otherwise.

    I think I'll try this with ACV instead and maybe just one egg yolk and the rest whites?

    Going to try cheese today - it's amazing how excited we get over simple things like cheese and peanut butter! I have gotten into sort of a "routine" in Phase 3 now that seems to be helping me stay within my target weight. I eat most of my calories during the day and I find that when I get home from work I don't have any appetite. Last night I ate a few bites of salmon and I was done. Eating the majority of your food during the day seems to help stabilize your weight, at least in my case it has.
