Traditional egg salad can be a bit boring, but I’ve added a fiesta of flavor to one of my new recipes for the Lighthouse Foods blog. It’s Cotija, Corn and Avocado Egg Salad – and yes, it’s amazing as it sounds! Mexican crumbling cheese, corn, tomatoes, diced avocado and other fresh and healthy ingredients are added to coarsely chopped eggs. Instead of old-school mayo, the recipe is lightly dressed with Creamy Cotija Cilantro Dressing – it’s one of my favorites and also insanely good on fish tacos.

  1. Eating the right amount of protein is so important to runners. I’ve read that the recommended amount for fit people is 0.5 gram per body weight. So, if you weigh 130, that would be approximately 65 grams of protein a day. When I was training for my marathons, I recorded my meals in the My Fitness Pal app just to make sure I was eating enough protein.

    That egg salad looks amazing! Totally pinning that!
