Avocado Egg Salad Lettuce Cups

Posted on

Contrary to what I’ve heard, egg salad is NOT just an old people sandwich for blue haired Granny’s (love you Granny!). Avocado’s are at peak freshness and taste during the Summer and I can’t find enough ways to use them. Subbing avocado’s for mayo kicks the flavor up several notches and adds healthy fats for gorgeous skin and a sexy body. While subbing lettuce for bread kicks the carbs to the curb! This basic recipe is one my Mom would make all the time to keep us crazy kids satisfied, with a few additions of mine of course.

Perfectly Roasted Chicken

Roasting a whole chicken is one of the most impressive yet simple things you can make in the kitchen. My market has them on sale at least once a month, SALE being one of my favorite words, and I buy a few at a time and freeze the ones I don’t cook right away. If freezing, be sure to defrost in the  fridge for about 48 – 72 hours. With a few easy steps and basic ingredients you can make the best chicken you’ve ever tasted.

Yummers!

When boneless skinless chicken breasts are on sale at the market, GET OUT OF MY WAY because I’m running there and stocking up.

They can be cooked right away in just a few minutes, or stored in your freezer for a later date.

Enjoy my healthful twist on the classic burger patty!
