The Eggs Are Dyed, Now What? Leftover Easter Egg Meal and Snack Creations.

Updated: Jun 22, 2021

Now that I am a full grown adult (boring) paying for my own food (boring), with my hard-ish earned cash, I make it a priority not to waste a crumb... and the holidays are no exception. We stuck to the traditional christian/jewish family tradition of dying brown, cage-free eggs (with all natural rice vinegar of course...what do you expect to find in a dietitian’s kitchen?) and now we have tons of eggs (and green finger nails) to use up for the week. The thought of a seven day lunch rotation of mayo-infused egg salad makes me want to yack, so I did some creative browsing and found some healthy egg inspired recipes to put my bedazzled dozen to good use.

Eggs are no longer a health “no, no". Eggs are a lean and inexpensive protein source loaded with vitamins and minerals like biotin (hello fabulous hair and nails!). Don't believe me? Remove all of the eggs from your diet. Guess what will happen to your cholesterol? Nothing! It's been studied. So peal away, try not to grossed out by the left over artificial color left behind, and whip up one of the following snacks:

Egg Salad on Celery: This is a great combination of texture. Mix the egg with 0% Greek yogurt and sprinkle some pepper on top. Viola!

Avocado Egg Toast: Much easier than poaching an egg! Just slice and drop on some toast with mashed avocado. Sprinkle with some red pepper flakes and call it a day.

Avocado with Shrimp and Egg: I love the flavor of seafood and avocado. I usually mix avocado with shrimp and crab. You can tweak this flavor trifecta and mix the egg in for good measure. So fancy!

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts and Chopped Egg: A great way to get in those greens. Sautee some sprouts with a mist of olive oil, pepper and salt and mix in some chopped egg for the finale.

And last, but not least, you can never for wrong with a good old hard-boiled egg and a piece of fruit for a balanced and portable snack.
