This sounds great, thanks for sharing. Where are the instructions from Toma? I don't see it anywhere.

Will try it. Like the low carbs but will cut out the bread and put it on iceberg lettuce.

Sounds wonderful, I'll have to try this one, sounds like something we both can eat together. What makes it hard for me is having to make two diff. meals for myself & my husband. I usually just give up & have a little of what he's having but its not wking out for me, the "diabetic"

I agree with you Karenk213! also, I have heard to that diabetics should have only 2 eggs per week, counting any egg that is in something they are going to eat. I used to love to have eggs, regularly, but I avoid them as much as I can now.

gg yolks are discarded to lower cholestrol. many health sites say one egg yolk has 200 mg cholestrol so I dont see how there is only 61 mg in this receipe with one egg yolk.

This is different - I usually just add mustard of some sort with my mayo - on lettuce is good but I like to put it in a dish and eat it that way - warm or cold. I think I will try this rec. What about using plain fat-free yogurt instead of sour cream - anyone try that? OR is that just weird??

Why are we discarding one whole egg yolk? I have so much to learn…

I always chop up some fresh tomato and mix it in to the egg salad. I omit the celery because of personal taste.

I have made this salad but put a scoop of it on a bed of lettuce. It eliminates the need for bread. It's great this way, especially for lunch.

and I really prefer to put this same mixture on romane lettuce leaves and forget the bread althogether.. I love lettuce wraps
