YA Eats 2

Hello beauties!! I hope this post finds everyone well. Who doesn’t love eggs? Whether you’re brunching hard with eggs benny, or hard-boiling them for on the go snacks, eggs are such a staple for keeping your belly full and your tastebuds happy. I am an avid egg salad gal. It is so easy to whip up a batch on Sunday afternoons and have egg salad ready to put on a wrap, mix with a salad, or eat on its own. And it very much fits in with the young adult theme of keeping the preparation quick, simple, and down to few ingredients. Let’s get into it! (I must PSA that egg salad is not the most beautifully photographed, know that stomachs don’t have eyes!)

What you need:

10 eggs

1 bunch celery stalks

1 cup Greek yogurt (I use Face)

Garlic powder, salt, pepper

What you do:

Hardboil your eggs. I don’t know about y’all, but I struggle with hardboiling eggs. They either take too long to peel and when you do half the egg is gone in the garbage with the shell, or the egg gets yolky, leaky and sad. Not in our kitchen! I finally perfected the hardboiling of eggs – put in the saucepan and cover by about half an inch with cool water, bring to a boil on high heat, then lower to medium heat and let cook for 10 minutes. Immediately pour out the hot water and fill with cool water, and let sit for 15 minutes before you continue on with your egg usage.


Cut up the celery into small pieces, peel your eggs and cut them into small pieces as well. Cover this mixture with your yogurt, add in your spices. Give it a big stir and yum! I added my egg salad to wraps throughout the week.  I would spread cheese onto a wrap and plop a bit serving onto it. With every recipe, of course, feel free to make it your own—add it different veggies, cheeses, spices, condiments; add it to salads, quinoa dishes, take a breakfast spin on it. The egg carton is your oyster!


Makes 5 servings. Cook time: 20 minutes. Prep time: 6ish minutes.

See you all here soon for another YA Eats, and some other posts getting back to my true roots – talking about feelings. Looking forward to it! XOXO
