Easy Egg Salad 🥚
AKA: What to do with all of those Easter eggs!😳
Truth be told I adore egg salad year-round!

🐔 Are eggs part of your go-to food rotation? They sure are for my family!
🧠 High in protein that’s easily used by our bodies, they have compounds that support brain and vision health.
💡 Plus, even though they contain cholesterol, studies show they do not appear to contribute to heart disease or high cholesterol levels in humans.
TIPS: Sorting through all the different types of chicken eggs at the grocery store can be confusing! 🥚🥚
✅ The best-for-you option is pastured eggs, as the hens are allowed free access to the outdoors. They eat a more natural diet … which means more nutrition for you!
If those aren’t possible, try free-range, cage-free, or organic.
🥒 Do you have any pickles in your fridge? Go check the ingredients list!
✅ Chances are if you buy regular commercial pickles … you’re not getting healthy probiotics from them!
➡️ For pickles to contain the “good” bacteria, they must be fermented in a solution of water and salt. Pickles made with vinegar do NOT fall into this category.
🔥 Check your store’s refrigerated section for probiotic-rich pickles and be sure to read the label!
👉 What’s your favorite kind of pickle!?
My favorite brand of cream cheese is pasture-raised “Organic Valley”.
