Thick creamy mayo-less egg salad, chopped then smashed for a taste and texture sensation!

Officially the best egg salad I ever did make/taste/devour in one sitting… Super creamy with no veggies to distract from eggy deliciousness. Lots of chives and spring onion in the mix along with a mighty amount of my favourite one and only Coyo natural dairy free yogurt.

I ALWAYS have hard boiled eggs on hand. They are my favourite and go to healthy satisfying snack. I used to be quite the soft boiled egg fan and they do still have they’re place, usually mingled into a salad so that the runny yolk can dress my greens, but hard boiled eggs are were it’s at when it comes to stopping hunger in it’s tracks.

A nice balance of protein and fat, I of course eat the whole egg. Some of you might have noticed that I tend to use just egg whites for grain free “oatmeal” bowls and even pancakes if you follow me on Instagram.

I find egg whites work better when you’re not seeking an eggy taste. I’m not a purist by any means and these days tend to buy bottled egg whites as I go through so many of them. The only exception being my omelette soufflés which need to be real deal straight from a freshly cracked egg, egg white in order to achieve the whipped stiff peaks!

I am that person that carries the hard boiled eggs or egg salad with them and inevitably ends up drawing attention to myself as a result of the unavoidable stench BUT…the Coyo mix definitely takes away from it while providing a punch of natural sweetness. I ate my Coyo straight from the pot for far too long and love experimenting with different ways to incorporate it into both my savoury and sweet eats these days.

FYI I don’t work for Coyo, nor have they asked me to write this post or any previous Coyo featuring posts I just truly love their product and it makes a fair dent in my macros each and every single day. It’s my go to night time snack, giving me a final satisfying naturally sweet luscious hit of fat fuel before I head to sleeps.  Ending the day on a high note!

What’s your favourite alternative egg salad? I do love my tahini Mediterranean egg salad when I want to be a little more fancy!

Pretty much the best protein bars I’ve ever eaten… Fudgy buttery bars with a sweet chocolate frosting a final flourish of chopped pecans for a bit of crunch. I’m a protein bar addict, self confessed. They are my favourite daily treat. I like knowing I’m getting in a fair amount of protein as well as […]
