Not your typical eggwich!

Matt made up some egg salad with the hard boilers I prepared this weekend and saved me a smothering for my lunch today. It’s made with carrot, celery, spices and likely a little mayo and mustard. I plopped the salad onto a Flax Oat Bran bun.

And an army of carrot + celery with a small spoonful of Barney Butter

I look at that lunch and think two things: nutrients and variety! Yum!

Ohhh egg salad is so delicious! I haven’t had it in ages!


4 Jessica @ How Sweet April 30, 2010 at 11:33 am

I love egg salad. It reminds me of my grandma and my childhood!


5 Ameena April 30, 2010 at 11:37 am

I used to eat egg salad sandwiches all the time – but forgot about them for a while. I need to resurrect them again!


6 Diana April 30, 2010 at 11:38 am

That egg salad sandwich looks amazing. So jealous of that healthy bread though. We do have a lot of amazing bread here in Portugal but not really whole grain with natural ingredients!


7 Katie@ Two Lives, One Lifestyle April 30, 2010 at 11:40 am

I was going to say what everyone else already said- I love egg salad and never, ever make it. The little reminders about delicious (but forgotten) foods is what I love about reading food blogs! I should totally add this to my lunch rotation, it’s cheap, filling, healthy with some added veggies.

Enjoy your day!

Happy Friday Kath – Love the egg salad!


11 Food Makes Fun Fuel April 30, 2010 at 11:51 am

I am seriously jealous of your mint! I could eat a whole salad of it


12 Nicole April 30, 2010 at 11:55 am

I seriously want some egg salad right now, looks delicious!


13 Johanna B April 30, 2010 at 11:57 am

I had an egg salad sandwich every one of the 180 days of school during my first grade year. I haven’t eaten one since. In fact I haven’t eaten eggs since then.


14 Jil @ Peace, Love & Munchies April 30, 2010 at 11:59 am

Ohh, I haven’t had egg salad in a looong time – that mixture sounds awesome.


15 Shannon (The Daily Balance) April 30, 2010 at 12:01 pm

this looks AMAZING! such interesting flavors!


16 Jenny April 30, 2010 at 12:02 pm

My gosh that sandwich looks delicious!


17 Jenn ( April 30, 2010 at 12:02 pm

I’m making egg salad today, too! What a coinky dinky. It looks marvelous on that bun! YUM 😀

Happy Friday!!!!!!



18 Lisa C. April 30, 2010 at 12:03 pm

I need to get myself some of that bread! And that sandwich is far superior to the kashi frozen meal I just had– i was desperate!


19 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) April 30, 2010 at 12:08 pm

I love a good hardy bread like that! Have you tried orange zest on cantaloupe? With the mint…it is amazing! It really enhances the flavors! Have a great afternoon.


20 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope April 30, 2010 at 12:09 pm

That sandwich sounds fantastic! And I love the variety in you lunch.


21 Liz April 30, 2010 at 12:10 pm

Hi Kath, I know you like your veggies and you like different things to dip them in. Have you tried BBQ sauce yet? I had a sald at a restaurant w/BBQ sauce instead of dressing and it was fantastic! Now I eat a lot of my raw veggies and salads with a little bit. Hope you are having fun at your internship


22 Kath April 30, 2010 at 2:53 pm

It’s not my favorite, but I’ve had it before!


23 Eileen April 30, 2010 at 12:11 pm

I *don’t* like egg salad … but I love the addition of so many veggies!


24 Lily @ Lily's Health Pad April 30, 2010 at 12:18 pm

I love the minty cantelope idea!!


25 Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) April 30, 2010 at 12:18 pm

That bun looks great–love all the seeds. Thanks for the reminder to stop by the bakery tonight and see if the seasonal summer breads have started coming out yet.


26 Veggielady4life April 30, 2010 at 12:31 pm

Ohh…. I’m gonna have to be honest and say mayo is the one thing I cannot eat. But your Barney butter looks delicious!


27 Wei-Wei April 30, 2010 at 12:38 pm

I don’t really like egg salad :( It must be the mayo… This sounds good, though! I’ve never really thought mixing crunchy veggies like carrots or celery with egg salad would taste good, because in my mind egg salad was always sort of just… mushy. But I guess those’ll give it some extra good texture? :S

I look at your lunch and I see: YUUUUUM! 😀

Hope the rest of your Friday is wonderful! :)



28 Claire April 30, 2010 at 12:39 pm

I still need to search for that bread at GH! Looks tasty.


29 Mary April 30, 2010 at 12:59 pm

I haven’t had egg salad in a long time, Kath!


30 Steph- Exercise Physiologist & Artist! April 30, 2010 at 1:04 pm

You always have the best looking bread for your sandwhiches!!
Jealous :)
Hope you are having a great friday!!


31 Abby April 30, 2010 at 1:05 pm

I’ve seen a lot of people eat carrots with almond butter. I just don’t think I can do it!


32 Amber K April 30, 2010 at 1:18 pm

I am not a fan of egg salad, but that bread looks good enough to eat with anything!


33 runnerforever April 30, 2010 at 1:22 pm

Friday indeed!! Have a fantastic weekend girl.


34 jill April 30, 2010 at 1:25 pm

I am going off track, but what did u eat prior to the half marathon? I have one this weekend. Always have an upset tummy. I remember u had a great race


35 Kath April 30, 2010 at 2:54 pm

Just go look at the recaps!

here’s the dress rehearsal:


36 Paige(Running Around Normal) April 30, 2010 at 1:30 pm

The egg salad sandwich looks delicious! I need to get my hands on some of that bread.Nutricious and delicious in deed!


37 Camille April 30, 2010 at 1:31 pm

Oh man, egg salad! I had sort of forgotten about it! One of my favorites, thanks for reminding me :)


38 Cali April 30, 2010 at 1:37 pm

If your hubby could make a gluten-free flax oat bread, I would fly out there and give him a big smooch on the cheek. That roll looks fabulous. And I have an instant craving for egg salad now! :)


39 Natalie April 30, 2010 at 2:00 pm

I used to hate egg salad but I should give it another try. Yours looks tasty.
I love, love, love carrot sticks with peanut butter or almond butter. It is just the best, far better than ranch for dipping.


40 jen trinque April 30, 2010 at 2:05 pm

Love the beautiful, summery pictures, as always!


41 lynn (The Actors Diet) April 30, 2010 at 2:41 pm

i fix eggs early on the week too – the other day i mistakenly boiled the water first and then dropped in the eggs (i was thinking pasta) but it turns out it still works – just harder to get the shell off, FYI!


42 Marisa (Loser for Life) April 30, 2010 at 2:48 pm

Those buns look so delicious! I love army carrots, too 😉


43 jaclyn@todayslady April 30, 2010 at 3:33 pm

That sandwich looks so so tasty! I love the addition of carrots to it!


44 Jessica @ The Process of Healing April 30, 2010 at 3:48 pm

I’ve seriously been lacking in the whole egg salad department for a while. And i’ve been wanting some like crazy!!!


45 Kori & Kaci April 30, 2010 at 3:54 pm

That lunch screams to me healthy deliciouness! :) Happy Friday, Kath!!


46 Stacey@ April 30, 2010 at 4:13 pm

I like the egg salad with the carrots and celery. It add’s crunch and nutrients.


47 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin April 30, 2010 at 6:46 pm

Wow that bread looks amazing. I wish we had Great Harvest bakeries here in Canada!


48 Hannah April 30, 2010 at 11:14 pm

I don’t think I’ve ever made or eaten an egg salad sandwich. I think it’s maybe a more American thing? This does look yummy, though!
