Are your kids back to school yet? It seems to be everywhere – all the stores have notebooks and pencil colors everywhere, “back to school” clothing scales are happening, and easy recipes are what’s needed. Especially easy lunch recipes, for all of you awesome lunch-packing moms out there!

Here’s another recipe to add to your lunch recipe list – Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches! They’re healthy, filling, and perfect for kids & adults alike. I love avocado and its nutrition, so I try to add it in our diet as much as I can. These sandwiches use avocado to replace the mayo used in traditional egg salad. I’d say that’s a healthier swap!

This avocado egg salad is vegetarian, gluten-free, and grain-free. Serve it on allergy-friendly bread if needed, or even in lettuce wraps! I love to pack it with fruit and nuts for a well-balanced lunch I feel good about sending my kids with. Enjoy!

Ah, summer. It’s such a fun time of year because the weather is nice, and there’s so much time to spend with your kids and family. We love getting outdoors, staying active, and enjoying each other’s company while we can!
