This low carb egg salad (7.6 grams of carbs) is a tasty lunch for those days when you are getting yourself back on track. I'm no stranger to indulgences. You'll find many recipes posted here for sinfully decadent recipes that I eat and enjoy. The problem is those sinful indulgences creep up on me in many not so enjoyable ways. Most obviously my waistline widens and the scale starts inching up into territories no one likes to admit. Can you relate? Less obviously our health starts to suffer. To keep that from happening we need to get back on track.
When I'm really cracking down on myself, I switch to low carb eating. This low carb egg salad is a go-to lunch for me. It satisfies my hunger and stays with me through the afternoon. There is a lot of crunch in this egg salad that I find satisfying. I've also kicked up the flavor with the addition of chopped onions and minced jalapeno pepper. Adjust the amounts of those ingredients to suit your preference. The one great thing about this recipe is that you can make it ahead of time without mixing the ingredients. Take it with you in a well-sealed container and mix it together just before you eat it.
