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.

Happy Quiche-ing!

Here’s a healthy and tasty side dish version I cook up all the time.

Spicy Caramel Bacon Popcorn

A new study out in TIME claims that popcorn, a quick and easy snack favorite of mine, is packed with cancer fighting antioxidants and fiber, hooray! So naturally I wanted to share one of my favorite guilty pleasure recipes that Adrianna does so well. This treat is NOT for everyday consumption, but is a great treat from time to time. Popping it in a healthy oil, such as grape seed or peanut, on the stove is still the healthiest and most simple way to chow down. I try to avoid microwave popcorn at all costs…
