Salmon Avocado Mango Salad with Soft Boiled Egg | Paleo // Whole30

Anyone else guilty of thinking up recipes about 30 minutes before you need to start making dinner?

There’s benefits to thinking on the fly, but a lot of times I’ll forget what I did.  That makes it hard to recreate if it turns out well.  I’m also forced to use what I have on hand, as a trip to the supermarket is out… Somehow, they always turn out ok…

This one was more than ok!  Light and refreshing, yet totally satisfying with lots of healthy fats!

So glad I wrote it all down 🙂Blog Paleo Whole30 Salmon Avocado Mango Salad with Soft Boiled Egg -1 Blog Paleo Whole30 Salmon Avocado Mango Salad with Soft Boiled Egg -2

Ingredients (Would serve 4)

  • 3 6oz cans of wild Alaskan Salmon
  • 10 grape tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 6-8 eggs (The Huz and I each had two, but Maya only had one)
  • 1 large avocados
  • 1 Mango diced
  • 1/2 and inch slice red onion diced (or a scallion)
  • 1/3 cup diced pickles
  • Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Head of Butter Lettuce

Directions

  • Boil water and cook eggs for 7-8 minutes (I accidentally forgot to set the timer and cooked mine a little longer than I had planned)  7 minutes for a runny yolk, 8 for a soft one as pictured.  Take off burner and add cold water and ice until they are cool.  Very important to have them fully cool, in order to peel properly.  Set aside while you make everything else.
  • Drain Salmon, place in large bowl, and break it up.
  • Dice tomato, avocado, mango, and onions and stir into salmon
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Set butter lettuce in a bowl, and scoop large cub of mixture on top.  Top with eggs.

Enjoy!

Next week, I’ll show you how I ate this for lunch the next day!  It was almost better!!

Chicken, Avocado, Egg Salad in a Bell Pepper Cup // Paleo // Whole30

I’ve been totally inspired by some Paleo and Whole30 recipes on Instagram (mostly @jennaskitchen and @the_clean_wife).  Doing Whole30 would not be an option with our teenage boys (I tried cooking separate meals before, but let’s be honest, ONE meal feels like too much work sometimes!)  I am all about making healthy meals that taste good though!!  The boys and Huz were all gone the other night, so it was just me and Maya.  She eats just about anything, so I figured it would be the perfect time to try something I’d been thinking of making.  Basically a mix of a few things I’ve seen around, plus what I had in our fridge already 🙂

It was DELICIOUS!  So light, yet filling, and unbelievably healthy!Blog Chicken Avocado Egg Salad In Bell Pepper Cup Paleo Whole30-1Ingredients (Would serve 4)

  • 10 grape tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 5 eggs (soft boiled)
  • 1 and a half large avocados
  • 1.5-2 cups shredded chicken breast (one or two large bone in breast depending on size)  I like to BBQ bone in chicken breasts and make extra just to have on hand for a follow up meal like this!  Super easy.  I usually just dust with olive oil and a tiny bit of sea salt and pepper.  Can even just throw it on the BBG plain though, since you peel the skin off!
  • 1/2 and inch slice red onion diced
  • Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 4 Bell Peppers (I like the orange and yellow ones :))

Directions

You can do almost all of it in the Cuisinart.  One dish-easy clean up-WIN!!Blog Chicken Avocado Egg Salad In Bell Pepper Cup Paleo Whole30-2

  • Boil water and cook eggs for 7 minutes.  Take off burner and add cold water and ice until they are cool.  Very important to have them fully cool, in order to peel properly.  Set aside while you make everything else.
  • Toss onions and tomatoes into a Cuisinart (or blender if you don’t have a Cuisinart)  Pulse a few times until chopped.
  • Add in Avocado (salt and pepper to taste.  I barely used any)
  • Add in chicken, and eggs
  • Pulse a few more times just to mix.
  • Slice the top off the peppers, deseed, and fill with mixture
  • Pick it up, get MESSY, and ENJOY! 🙂
