Every Sunday morning I go to the farmers’ market. There is one right on the corner of my block. Today I got delicious fresh bread from Bread Alone (Whole Wheat Catskill Bread) and eggs from my favorite organic stand.
In my fridge I have a jar of homemade dill pickles from Maria.
Of course I had to make egg salad.
We each ended up having 2x what you see here. (Bobby’s is the one with sriracha, mine is the regular.)
Simple Egg Salad Sandwiches
- 5 small-medium eggs (if you have bigger eggs, 4 will suffice)
- 3-4 tablespoons mayo (don’t skimp – this is what makes it good)
- 2 teaspoons mustard
- 1/4 cup finely chopped dill pickle
- < 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (you don’t need much; the pickles have salt)
- pepper to taste

I had to keep track of what I ate for a day for something, so I figured – why not take pictures and post a What I Ate Wednesday?
This is 1 scrambled egg with some swiss (Jarlsberg) and sauteed onions. I also had a slice of whole grain toast with butter, a pear (some of it is unpictured – I was snacking as I prepped the plate), some sliced tomato (from Maria’s garden in NJ – Maria is my Grammie’s caretaker), sauteed onions, and sauerkraut (homemade by Maria).
It was really delicious. I have been eating a lot of sauerkraut lately because Maria gave me a big container of it.
I also had an unpictured 1/2 cup of coffee with coconut creamer.

A few weeks ago I received a copy of Keri Glassman’s new book, The New You and Improved Diet: 8 Rules to Lose Weight and Change Your Life Forever (it’s on the the Kindle too).
I was very excited for this book because Keri’s 3 taglines for this book are:
- Eat more, not less!
- Catch some zzz’s!
- And have more sex (you heard me!)
Sounds like a plan anyone in their right mind would want to follow and enjoy following – nothing like the typical restrictive diet.
Keri catapults you right into her plan. She intros a quickstart “Eight Foods Cleanse” early on – page 27 to be exact. I figured if I am going to give this book a proper review (to come…) I should at least try out the cleanse. To be honest, I haven’t ever really followed a proper “diet” plan. I generally just try to eat less/move more. I’m really interested to see if I feel any different at the end of this “cleanse”. In the past I’ve tried doing the “raw/juicing” thing, “macrobiotic“, etc…
