Last night I whipped up the Aktins’ egg salad recipe. It was the perfect way to break my fast this morning (30 minutes after a few olives). Now I’ve never been a fan of egg salad. Growing up most of the time my dad just got some from the store. It always smelled overwhelmingly eggy to me. But then again as a kid I was a very picky eater.
Thankfully I’m done with being “too picky.” Although I think my hubby might not quite agree with me on this point.
Anyway, the recipe is very simple and delicious. My favorite part is the celery. That might seem strange as I unconditionally love eggs. But the celery adds a great crunch and texture.
I added 3 large Boston butterhead leaves and thick bacon for a grand total of 3g carbohydrates.
