Golden Egg Salad in Pictures

Let’s dive in. Golden Egg Salad.

I love egg salad. It’s creamy, a bit tangy, nourishing and full of flavor and satisfaction. 

Here’s how I made Golden Egg Salad the other night. 

I started by pressure cooking organic broccoli in my beloved Instant Pot, which effortlessly takes only a handful of minutes. 

Instant Pot broccoli. Easy!

While the broccoli is cooking, I get a bowl together with the dressing mixture.

For starters, I don’t like conventional mayo because they all have some kind of vegetable oil in it (canola or sunflower or soybean oil) of which I currently eschew. I’m not crazy about the primal mayos out there either. 

Instead, I love and always use Straus whole-fat Greek yogurt which is a kiss from heaven. It’s thick, rich, and tastes like cream cheese(?) to me. I use it in place of all things mayo and my gut thanks me as a result (boost of gut-health probiotic love). I can’t speak for other Greek yogurts though, as far as heavenly taste. 

To the bowl, I add:

I stir it all and look for more stuff to add texture and pizzazz to my egg salad. 

Oh. Whoops. I should mention that I already had my hard-cooked eggs made in my Instant Pot earlier today. Reason alone to buy an Instant Pot to make the perfect-every-time hard-boiled eggs

Ok so I found some red bell pepper and chopped it. 

I added sauerkraut and chopped bread-n-butter pickles (my favorite in egg salad).

Bell pepper for texture, brightness, and nutrition

Then I chopped the freshly cooked broccoli, added more Greek yogurt cuz you should make it really creamy. 

I need a bigger bowl.

Added the chopped eggs. 

Stirred it up and tasted. 

Almost perfect. 

Diced up an apple and added it. 

Now, it’s perfect. 

Oh yeah. Bring it.

Mmmmmmmm.

Turmeric Recipes Ebook!

I’m so happy to announce that I just released another Kindle ebook, Turmeric Hacks!

This one features 55 recipes to help you add more turmeric to your life.

(Just last week I published my other new ebook, Matcha Hacks.)

Why would you want more turmeric in your diet?

Because it’s good for you. :)

Turmeric is a deep orange-yellow spice that’s been used in South Asian cuisine for thousands of years. Many people consider turmeric to be a superfood due to its active compound, curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant reputed to decrease inflammation, notably for chronic inflammation, which can lead to cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurological disease, type-2 diabetes, and arthritis (it can work for acute inflammation, too!).

With the recent increase in awareness of the health benefits of curcumin, it’s no surprise that people want more ways to get more turmeric into their diet. I can help you with that.

In my own quest to have more turmeric in my family’s life, I have taken turmeric beyond its traditional role as a spice by creating these 55 recipes for adding turmeric to all kinds of foods, including smoothies, entrees, soups, sides, salads, desserts, breakfast, condiments, snacks, beverages… even toothpaste!
