An egg salad on bread can be delicious.
But if you have type 2 diabetes (and therefore have an elevated blood sugar) it is important to eat it low in carbohydrates.
Because every gram of sugar/carbohydrate you save is a bonus.
In this recipe, you will learn how to make a low-carb egg salad. It is a healthy and simple recipe you can make quite fast. You can make it with or without ham (if you are a vegetarian). And you can use any herb you want.
Tip: an low-carb egg salad with dill tastes amazing.
Making an egg salad low in carbs is very easy. I don't actually know how to make it rich in carbohydrates.
Perhaps by putting potatoes or pasta in it?
Most egg salads are therefore already low in carbohydrates and, almost, keto and sugar-free. If you were to buy an egg salad at the supermarket, it is likely to contain added sugar/carbohydrate to thicken it.
But the main reason to make your own egg salad is because it is a lot more delicious than an egg salad from the supermarket.
Some people want to make a low-carb egg salad without mayonnaise so it is lower in calories, but that is much less tasty. I recommend you to just make it with mayonnaise.
But if you really don't want it, you can always use Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, crème fraîche or even avocado as a substitute.
If you like fish, you can always add tuna to your egg salad.
