This is the kind of dish I can eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  It’s quick, easy, and well-balanced, not to mention super tasty and satisfying.

AVOCADO EGG SALAD

AVOCADO EGG SALAD

True story...  When I was preggers with baby #2, I had the strangest food aversions and cravings.  I could NOT stomach sparkling water (shocking for a girl who drinks it daily).  And yet I would take any break I had between patients to wolf tomato, lettuce & egg salad sandwiches.  And I didn’t think I even LIKED egg salad.
