Avocado Egg Salad

As of today, I have not run for a solid week. I have been sick and I just didn't feel 100% today, so I didn't want to push myself and make it worse. Hopefully Thursday I can really go hard and try to conquer a 10 miler. I feel like I should since I wasn't able to participate in my 10 mile race on Saturday.

For lunch today I made a delicious avocado egg salad! It is good to eat plain, on a piece of toast, or on a bed of raw spinach.

I got the recipe from a website called Skinny Taste. The recipe can be found here. The only thing I changed was instead of chives I chopped up a little bit of red onion and some fresh cilantro. I highly recommend using less salt than the recipe calls for, and I added quite a bit of pepper.

Definitely a recipe I'll be making again.

Yesterday's workout was SO enjoyable. I have missed lifting! It had been a week since I had lifted and I was so ready to feel sore again. Here it is:

The "I'm Done Being Sick So I'm Going To Make Myself Sore" Workout:
DB Chest Press x10,9,8,7
Squat on Smith Machine x10,9,8,7

Reverse Pushup x10,9,8,7

Now it's time to buckle down for exams and then it's SUMMER!


  1. I will have to show Jamie this recipe (because as you know it looks far too healthy for me) but I think she would love it! And your pictures are getting amazing! LOVE these ones. I thought the Lara Bar ones were my favorite but now these are!

    1. Oh yay I'm so glad you think my photography is improving! It is so fun and I love how practice pays off so clearly.

  2. This looks delish! Will have to try it out, since I love anything with avocado. I am coming over from Dear lillie, and I am enjoying your blog! I'm your newest follower.

    1. Avocado lovers are definitely welcome here!! Glad you're enjoying the blog :)

  3. Hi Lauren,
    (I wrote earlier but my comment isn't showing--hope it doesn't show twice). Congrats on your new blog! I have come your way via Jennifer's Dear Lillie Blog. I am so happy to have found you. I just started P90X myself and am looking for inspirational blogs with great vegetarian recipes. I'm now following and look forward to getting to know you better!

    1. Hey Lisa!
      I actually got the email with your first comment... I have NO idea why it's not showing up!! Sorry about that.
      I am so excited about your new goals. Make sure you take body measurements (like at the hips, waist, thigh, etc) instead of just your weight because often times when you're doing intense training such as P90X you are losing fat, but gaining muscle. This means that your body will look a ton better, but the weight on the scale may stay the same. Just an idea! Good luck on your journey and I am excited to hear about your accomplishments!
