Easy Healthy Food Recipes – Delicious Light Avocado Egg Salad

In Blog, Recipes by Hong70 Comments

I hope you had the time to check out my last food blog, easy healthy food recipes – easy avocado tomato salad, and hopefully you enjoyed making and eating that delicious and wholesome salad.

This is going to be another post focusing on how to increase sulfur naturally through the foods you consume.

In fact, the best and most ideal way to obtain sulfur is through our diet.

Sulfur is a naturally occurring compound found in many protein-rich foods and certain vegetables, such as such Alaskan salmon, poultry, grass-fed meats, broccoli, onion, and eggs, just to name a few.

In this post, I will share with you the following:

  • What is so special about sulfur?
  • A Healthy Substitute For Mayonnaise
  • How To Make This Light Avocado Egg Salad?
  • Nutrition Facts and Benefits 

So without further ado, let’s get started!


What is so Special About Sulfur?

Sulfur is one of the most important minerals in our body. In fact, it is the third most abundant mineral in our body after calcium and phosphorus and is absolutely essential for the proper functioning of our body.

Sulfur is one of the main components of detoxification and cellular regeneration in the body. Additionally, it’s one of the basic building blocks used throughout the body to make a variety of biomolecules such as enzymes, collagen, amino acids, hormones, neurotransmitters, and much more.

As I’ve mentioned previously in my easy avocado tomato recipe post, of the 20 amino acids present in food, only 2 contain sulfur, and neither are stored in your body.

They are methionine and cysteine.

Methionine cannot be synthesized by our bodies and therefore has to be supplied from external sources. Cysteine is another sulfur-containing amino acid, which is synthesized by our body but needs a steady supply of sulfur in order to do so.

It’s important that you supply your body with this nutrient daily as it is not stored by the body and is passed every 12 hours after being ingested.

In today’s modern society, we are being bombarded on a regular basis with chemical, food, and environmental toxicity coming from genetically-modified foods, refined and processed foods, preservatives in the food, artificial food coloring, radiation, air-borne pollutants, chemtrails that poison our air, water and soil with toxic metals, pharmaceutical products, and personal hygiene products.

Without sulfur, your body cannot properly mobilize and release toxins, toxins will then remain embedded in the body’s cells, which will eventually make you more susceptible to illnesses.

If you want to keep your body performing at its maximum capacity and defend yourself against all of the toxic contaminants you are exposed to daily, then you need to detox. A sulfur-rich diet is an absolutely necessary step in the detoxification process.

If further detox is needed, organic sulfur crystals can be a great way to help you achieve further detoxification.


A Healthy Substitute For Mayonnaise

Ok, I think I’ve said enough about the importance of sulfur. Now let’s talk about this creamy, sulfur-rich, beautiful, and delicious light avocado egg salad.

Easy Healthy Food Recipes - Delicious Light Avocado Egg Salad

I had an obsession with mayonnaise for a long time. I especially loved it on my sandwiches and egg salad. The taste of mayonnaise is so rich, creamy, and delicious, and it seems to go well with any dish.

I’ve become a conscious eater in the past couple of years after experiencing some health problems. I decided to adapt to a healthier diet and lifestyle and had to finally say goodbye to my favorite condiment, mayonnaise.

One day I was reading a health book and came across this delicious light avocado egg salad recipe. The recipe looked yummy and I wanted to give it a shot but I was disappointed to find that one of the ingredients needed was mayonnaise. Since I gave it up two years ago, there is no way that I was going back to it.

Mayonnaise is not the healthiest ingredient. In fact, one tablespoon of regular mayonnaise has about 100 calories and 11 grams of fat and 80 milligrams of sodium.

In practical terms, this means 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise can double the fat and calorie content of your food. Sure, it’s so delicious, but I knew there had to be a better and healthier alternative.

So I searched and found a healthier alternative. What I found is going to sound really strange to many of you. Has the thought of putting plain yogurt on your salad ever crossed your mind? Maybe it has to some of you, but it certainly has never crossed my mind.

In fact, I was hesitant and reluctant to substitute plain yogurt for mayonnaise initially, it just sounded very unappetizing. Well, I am glad I gave it a shot. My salad actually turned out way better than I expected!

As weird as it sounds, using plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise is a healthier alternative. You will still get that delicious creamy consistency, but without all of the saturated fat and calories.

For an even healthier salad dressing, I recommend you use fat-free or low-fat plain yogurt.

Nutrition Facts and Benefits 

Avocadoavocado

  • Avocados are high in tripeptide, which is formed when three amino acids are bonded together that breaks down to cysteine after digestion, making avocados a great source of sulfur. In fact, Avocado contains the highest sulfur content among all fruits.
  • Avocados are a heart-healthy nutrient-dense food that is high in monounsaturated fats, which is a good fat. It also provides substantial amounts of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients with relatively few calories.
  • 1/3 of a medium avocado (50g) has 80 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it a great nutrient dense food choice.

 

Eggseggs in a nest

  • Whole eggs are among the most nutritious foods, containing a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.
  • A single large boiled egg contains Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc. It also contains folate, vitamin B5, vitamin B12, vitamin B2, phosphorus, and selenium.
  • One egg has 75 calories, 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids. The egg is a powerhouse of disease-fighting nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin.
  • Eggs are great sources of protein and also high in sulfur. The yolks are particularly rich in sulfur and also high in cholesterol. In fact, a single egg contains 187 mg of cholesterol, which is over half of the recommended daily intake.
  • Contrary to popular belief, the amount of cholesterol from foods is not a major factor in increasing the cholesterol level in your blood or increasing your risk for cardiovascular disease, even when eating one egg a day. It is the saturated fats that raise blood cholesterol more than dietary cholesterol does.
  • Studies have shown that consistent egg consumption leads to elevated levels of HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, which is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases.
  • According to this study, it states that 70% of the population experiences a mild increase or no alterations in plasma cholesterol concentrations when challenged with high amounts of dietary cholesterol.
  • So it’s important to keep in mind that cholesterol from foods doesn’t necessarily raise cholesterol in the blood for the majority of people. The liver actually produces large amounts of cholesterol every single day. When we eat more eggs, the liver just produces less cholesterol instead, so it evens out.

 

Grape Tomatogrape tomatoes

  • Grape tomatoes offer flavor without too many calories. They are low in fat, cholesterol free, sodium free and also a great source of fiber.
  • One cup of grape tomatoes only contains only 27 calories, 1.8 grams of fiber, 6 grams of complex carbohydrates and 1 gram of protein.
  • Grape tomatoes contain lycopene, vitamin A and Vitamin C as well as other vitamins and minerals.

 

Onionwhite and purple onions

  • Onions are high in vitamin C, a good source of fiber, and with only 45 calories per serving. Onions are free of sodium, fat, and cholesterol, and also provide a number of other key nutrients.
  • Onions contain compounds such as allyl sulfides and sulfoxides that may improve heart health and repair tissues in joints.
  • In fact, it is one of the best sources of sulfur. The high sulfur content of onions alone supports the body’s natural ability to detox.
  • Onions are powerful superfoods with anti-cancer, antiviral, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. They are packed with beneficial nutrients and compounds.
  • Onions are also rich in quercetin, which is a powerful bioflavonoid. Quercetin helps to remove excessive estrogen levels from the body. This antioxidant also stimulates liver function to detoxify estrogen and other cancer-causing agents.

 

Spinachspinach

  • Spinach is low in fat and cholesterol. It is high in niacin, zinc, protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese.
  • Spinach is a good source of Vitamin K, which helps to retain calcium in the bone matrix, thereby leading to bone mineralization.
  • Spinach is also a rich source of beta-carotene, lutein, and xanthene, all of which are beneficial for eyesight.
  • Abundant flavonoids in spinach act as antioxidants to keep cholesterol from oxidizing and protect your body from free radicals, particularly in the colon.
  • The folate in spinach is good for your heart.
  • Spinach has a very high content of potassium and a low content of sodium, which is good for the heart.
  • Spinach also helps to maintain your vigorous brain function, memory, and mental clarity.

 

Turkeycartoon turkey

  • Turkey meat is a source of protein, iron, zinc, potassium, and phosphorus. It is also a source of vitamin B6 and niacin, which are both essential for the body’s energy production.
  • Regular turkey consumption can help lower cholesterol levels. The meat has a low glycemic index which can help keep insulin levels stable.
  • Turkey is a source of selenium, which is essential for thyroid hormone metabolism.
  • Turkey also contains the amino acid tryptophan, which produces serotonin and plays an important role in strengthening the immune system.

 

Organic Valley Grassmilk Plain YogurtOrganic Valley Grassmilk Plain Yogurt

  • Organic Valley Grassmilk Yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, a critically important nutrient for building and maintaining strong bones.
  • It is also an excellent source of protein.  The protein in Organic Valley Grassmilk Yogurt is a combination of whey and casein in the milk.
  • Consuming enough protein satisfies your appetite more completely and provides the building blocks for muscle, bones, skin, and blood.  In general, it is recommended that 10 to 35 percent of your daily calories come from protein.
  • Scientists agree that many health problems are the direct result of our modern diet, which includes too many omega-6 fatty acids and too little omega-3 fatty acids. Human beings evolved eating a diet with an omega-6:omega-3 ratio of about 1:1. However, modern western diets exhibit omega-6:omega-3 ratios ranging between 15:1 to 17:1.
  • Organic Valley Grassmilk Yogurt has high levels of omega-3, which can help bring our bodies closer to the ideal ratio.
  • Live active cultures in the yogurt help to promote a healthy community of “microflora” in our digestive systems. Some of these cultures also help to “pre-digest” lactose in milk, making it more digestible for lactose sensitive people.

  1. Thanks so much for this wonderful site. I have tried this recipe and I must say it is the best.
    My wife and I tried this recipe and fixed it up just like you wrote. I didn’t have the yogurt that you called for and had to pick some up. We wanted to try just like you wrote. Wow. Amazing is an understatement.
    Please keep up the good work.
    Would you recommend putting some homegrown Cilantro in the salad?

      Hello Bob,

      Thank you for stopping by and you are every welcome. I am so glad to hear that you and your wife made the avocado egg salad and liked it. I put cilantro in almost everything I make. So I do recommend putting it in the salad.

      If you like to try another avocado recipe, I just posted another recipe today. Feel for to check it out.

  2. Wow! What a comprehensive article. Love, love, love both eggs and avocados. Personally, I adore mayo made with avocado oil but using full fat yogurt is a good substitute. The photos made my mouth water. I am enjoying learning about sulfur. Who knew?!

      Hi Michelle,

      Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. I used to love Mayo, but I gave it up few years ago. Since I tried the plain yogurt on this salad, I am in love with it now. I hope you get a chance to make this salad and like it too.

  3. This sounds absolutely delicious, kinda like a cobb salad but healthier. I’m a huge fan of avocados and try to eat them several times a week- I really miss them when I don’t! Of course, that can get expensive but I think the health benefits are worth it.

      Hi Penelope,

      This recipe is not only delicious, best of all, it is rich in sulfur and loaded with other vitamins and minerals.

      I hope you get a chance to try the avocado egg salad. I am sure you are going to like it.

  4. Super easy recipe and delicious! I know avocados are powerhouses but had no idea they even contained sulfur. I learn something every day:) Isn’t it amazing that you can substitute yogurt in for the mayo? I use mayo, yogurt, and sour cream interchangeably oftentimes. They all lend their own unique flavor (as well as creaminess) and both the yogurt and sour cream offer a tanginess to a dish that can’t be found in mayo. Thanks for the recipe and all the great info!:)

      Hello Jennifer,

      Thank you for visiting and for your comment.

      Yes, avocado contains sulfur, in fact, it have the highest amount of sulfur among all fruits. It is not only good for detoxifying the body, but also loaded with tons of vitamins and minerals.

      I never thought yogurt would taste good in a salad. I am glad that I tried it, and it turned out to be surprisingly delicious. And best of all, it has a lot less calories than mayo. And that is always a plus for me.

      If you love avocados, I have another recipe coming up sometime next week. Feel free to check it out if you are interested.

      I hope you have fun making and enjoying this salad.

  5. Hey Hong, this salad sounds amazing! I love anything with avocado in it so I can’t wait to try this out. I’ve never tried yogurt instead of mayo on salad before but I think after reading your article I will give it a shot, as you are so right, it has WAY less calories. I will be adding this to my menu plan for this coming week 🙂 Thanks!!

      Hello Ann,

      Thank you for visiting and for your comment. I love anything with avocado as well. This was actually my first time trying out plain yogurt on a salad, and it turned out so much better than I’ve expected. This salad is not only delicious, creamy, and best of all it is so much less calories. Fewer calories are always a bonus.

      I also have another avocado recipe that I will be posting sometime next week. Feel free to check it out. I hope you get to try the delicious light avocado egg salad out and hopefully you like the recipe.

  6. I had no idea how important sulfur was for our bodies — thanks for enlightening me! While this recipe looks super tasty, I’m wondering if you can suggest a substitution for the avocado, since I’m allergic. Is there any other food that has similar properties that you think would work well in this? Thanks in advance!

    1. Author

      Hey Deedee,

      Thank you for visiting my article and for your comment. Yes, sulfur is a critical mineral for our health. It makes for the vital amino acids used to create proteins for cells, tissues, hormone, and many other important things in our body.

      I am sorry that you are allergic to avocado. I’ve done some research on the alternative today and unfortunately I was unable to find a substitute.

      The recipe still works and tastes yum without the avocado. You will still get plenty of sulfur and all the benefits from this recipe without avocado. The reason it is used in this salad is because I love the creaminess of the avocado and I love it in almost all my salads.

      Besides avocado has sulfur; eggs, onion, and turkey also contain sulfur in this delicious light avocado egg salad recipe.

      If you have any further questions, please free to reach out to me.

      All the best,
      Hong

  7. Wow delish and so many health benefits with the ingredients.
    Can’t wait to make this for lunch today. I don’t have any turkey but I might substitute for some baked organic bacon I have. Do you think that will work together?

    1. Author

      Hey Vince,

      Thank you for checking out the article and hopefully you enjoyed it.

      You don’t have to use turkey or chicken, you can use meat you like. I think the baked organic bacon will go well with the salad.

      I hope you have fun making and eating this yummy salad.

  9. Wow! This was very informative! I love how you break down the benefits of each ingredient. Being from California, I love avocados, In fact, whenever my Mom had any of her sisters visit from out of state, she would make them guacamole. Everyone was first turned off by how they looked, but once they tasted it, they were hooked! My Mom would mail them Avocados from time to time! Great article!

  13. I love ALL the ingredients in this salad. I have printed out this post, and plan on making this. I am curious what foods have Sulphur in them? I had never heard about the benefits of Sulphur, or even that it was a nutrient that our bodies needed. This was another great article with tons of useful and wonderful information!

    1. Author

      Hello Matts Mom,

      I am glad you love all the ingredients in this recipe and found the article useful. There are many foods that contain sulfur, such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, fish, poultry, grass-fed meats, nuts and legumes, eggs, avocado, garlic, onion, and much more.

      In this particular light avocado egg recipe, the ingredients that contain sulfur include: avocado, egg, onion, and turkey.

      Sulfur is really important for our health. In fact nearly half of the sulfur is concentrated in our muscles, skin and bones. It makes up vital amino acids used to create protein for cells, hormones, enzymes, tissues and antibodies in our body.

      I hope you like this salad.

Like I feel so much better when I eat it. I had no idea how important sulfur is for the body and that avocado contains a high level of it. I wonder if this is why I feel so good after eating it. It makes me feel good but I still hate it, lol! I will be trying this to see how it tastes. tfs, I’ll be bookmarking your site too 🙂

      Hello Marlinda,

      Not everyone is a fan of avocado, but it certainly possesses some exceptional health-promoting properties. In fact, I used to hate it too, but ever since I got into the habit of making my own salad, I am now addicted.

      Avocados contain primarily monounsaturated fat. Most of that monounsaturated fat is oleic acid, which is the same fatty acid found in olives and olive oil. This type of fat is considered to be very healthy.

      It is true that avocados can make you feel good and full longer due to their fat content and fiber. Fiber helps to keep the digestive system running smoothly and slows the breakdown of carbohydrates in your body, helping you feel good and full for longer.

      The sulfur content in the avocado also helps detox your body, clean body translates to good health and good feeling. This could also be the reason why you feel good after eating avocado.

      I hope you give this recipe a try, maybe you will fall in love with avocado like me. I would love to know how the salad turns out for you and whether or not you like it 🙂

      Have fun making and eating the salad!

  20. So simple, yet so healthy an nutritious. I have never tried avocado but I’m going to try this dish myself although I’m not too keen on onions, is there an alternative that you could recommend that would work just as well with this dish?

    1. Author

      Hi Matthew Owen,

      If you are not a fan of onion, some alternatives you can use instead are chives, leeks (the white parts only), or shallots.

      The reason I love onions is not only because they contain high levels of sulfur, but also I love the sweet taste of it.

      If you don’t like any of these ingredients I listed. You don’t have to put them in your salad. The salad would still taste yum without them.

  21. Hi Hong, very informative article. I had no idea sulfur was so crucial to our health, though I have heard of it before. I’m happy to see that you are a nurse so you obviously know what your’e talking about. Your recipes look lovely but I am a vegan so unfortunately I cannot try them, but I’m sure I could put together my own vegan sulfur rich meals. In fact, I eat broccoli pretty much every day as it is also quite a high protein vegetable so I have it with every dinner. Thanks for the great work and keep it coming.

      Hello Stefanie Taylor,

      I am glad that you found my article informative. Yes, sulfur is one of the most important minerals for our health. It is a necessary mineral to detoxify and regenerate our cells. So we can stay healthy and illness free.

      I am sorry that this recipe is not vegan friendly, but I do have another sulfur-rich recipe that is my all time favorite. It is my easy avocado tomato salad, which is 100% vegan. I think you might like it.

      Since you also consume quite a bit of broccoli daily, you are also getting good amount of sulfur from that.

      Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

      Hi Saiprasad,

      I am glad you found the article informative. I can’t really think of an avocado alternative. You can leave it out of the recipe, the salad will still going to taste good.

  24. I will have to try this recipe out! I have to admit I use mayo often and I am trying to cut back on it as I know it is not healthy for you. I would have never thought to use yogurt as an alternative, but come to think of it it is used in mediterranean cooking. I am also getting more into avocado now as well as I didn’t have much of a taste for it before. Lately I have been using it in salads, but I will have to try it out in this recipe!

      Hello Christopher Starz,

      I hope you give this delicious light avocado egg salad a try.

      Giving up on Mayo was not an easy thing for me. It has been two years since I gave up on Mayo. And I thought it was the best decision my made for my health.

      I used to hate avocados, but now I am addicted. If you like more avocado salad recipe ideas, I will be posting another recipe next week. Feel free to check it out.

      Plain yogurt on salad sounds strange, but it is amazingly delicious. It is still rich and creamy, but much healthier out.

  26. Hi Hong!
    I this article is fab! Thank you for so much information and also for such a delicious and healthy recipe. it’s good to know about the importance of sulfur and that avocado has a high concentration of it. I don’t usually eat avocado in a salad. In Brazil, it’s more commonly eaten together with other fruits instead. But Will try my best to eat more avocado.
    Again, thanks for your great article!

      Hi Stefan,

      Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. You are very welcome for the information.

      Avocado is loaded with sulfur, which makes it a great fruit to help detoxify the body.

      In my other two food recipes, I’ve been using mostly vegetables for the recipes. However, I have this new recipe that focuses on using mostly other fruits with avocado, which I will be trying out sometime next week.

      If the recipe turns out delicious, I will be posting next week. If not, it will be some other food recipe. Feel free to check it out sometime next week.

  27. Loved this post! Very informative and taught me the importance of sulfur to our bodies (I had no idea it was the third most abundant mineral). Your avocado egg salad looks delicious and I can’t wait to try a replicate at home! Thanks for sharing.

  29. That looks really good. But I never could stand Avacados. Then you messed with my favorite, Mayonaise. LOL. Just playing around. I am always amazed how you come up with these healthy meals. I must admit that I learn more and more about the benefits of a sulfur diet each time I visit your post. Do you offer a recipe book at all?

      Hello Ronnie Jordan,

      This avocado egg salad is so good. Honestly, I am not a fan of avocado when eating it by itself, but when I combine it with other ingredients, it tastes so much more scrumptious. I hope you give it a try; you might end up liking it.

      I am very happy to hear that you are learning more about the importance and the benefits of sulfur to our health.

      I don’t have a recipe book, but I will be adding new recipe to the website regularly. Feel free to check it out.

  30. Yessss keep it coming with the egg and avocado recipes, Hong! Haha I could eat just those two ingredients alone, but your recipes taste much better and include a bunch of other nutrient-packed ingredients, so I’ll stick with them! I’ve often used Greek yogurt to replace sour cream and mayonnaise, but I’ve never tried the Grassmilk yogurt you mentioned. I’ll let you know what I think! Thanks for another great recipe Hong!

      Hello Jason,

      You are very welcome for the recipe. I will have another avocado recipe that I will be making and posting next week. Feel free to check it out. I hope you give this recipe and the organic valley grassmilk plain yogurt both atry. And I hope you like them!
