Thai Curry Egg Salad Cups

Egg salad is one of my go-to proteins when meal prepping for lunch. Recently, I came up this spin that packs so much flavor.

For those in a weight loss phase, this is a great go-to because it is low carb and super filling. Each half of the bell pepper takes the role of bread and makes a sweet and crunchy vessel to put the egg salad in.recipe (serves 3)

Macrobalanaced Tip:  I paired this with a side salad topped with smoked jalapeno sauerkraut. This is a very low carb meal, so if you need more carbohydrate, feel free to add to whole wheat bread and slice the bell pepper to add in to the sandwich.
