Eggs are real vitamin powerhouses! They contain almost all vitamins (except vitamin C). Plus, they provide all nine essential amino acids. Your body cannot produce these itself, so it has to get them through the food you eat. Today we have three easy high-protein recipes to help you shake up your meal plan with hard-boiled eggs!

1. Avocado Egg Salad

This avocado egg salad is a quick and easy side option you can combine with many meals. Creamy avocado, chopped eggs, fresh lemon and just the right amount of Dijon mustard – delicious. Thanks to the avocado, you don’t need any mayonnaise for a creamy consistency.
