With only 78 calories for a large boiled egg, this egg salad sandwich is a winner. A few simple swaps changed this indulgent egg salad sandwich, into a healthy egg salad sandwich!
Eggs are a great low calorie, high protein food! A large boiled egg contains 78 calories and 6 grams of protein. Egg whites without the yolk are only 17 calories, and almost 4 grams of protein. So much of the protein comes from the egg whites, with the least amount of calories! To get my full printable list of calories in all proteins, click here!)
If you love egg salad, you’ll love this healthy version. I got the basics of this recipe from the Body for Life Cookbook, but made a few changes to make it my own!
To make this healthy egg salad sandwich healthier, I used:
- Fat free mayo
- I used LOW CALORIE/ LOW CARB bread, Dave’s Killer bread, Powerseed, thin cut. (70 calories)
- I used one slice of bread, making it an open faced sandwich, rather than two slices of bread.
- I weighed my avocado so it didn’t add too many calories, but added HUGE flavor!
- I added extra veggies! Peppers, celery, and lettuce!
- I only used one whole egg, but an extra egg white.
- I made it for one serving, for easier portion control!
