Boiled eggs are getting repetitive, looking for some simple egg recipes for lunch?

I generally follow the same template for all of my meals, which means all of my lunches are pretty simple to make and involve hard boiled eggs.

I'm student and spend up to 12+ hours in college sometimes, especially since it's exam season so having something simple I can throw together in bulk, refrigerate and take as I'm walking out the door is pretty crucial. (Affordability is also a factor)

The only issue with all of this hard boiled egg business is that my recipes are a bit repetitive and I'm getting a little tired of it all.

My lunches usually look a little like this:

3 boiled eggs (sometimes I'll use 2 eggs and some tuna then instead)

2 large tomatoes

Scallions

1/2 Avocado (Sometimes)

Cucumber or carrot shavings if I'm feelin' fancy..

I switch it up using simple homemade dressings like lemon juice, dijon mustard or my own garlic mayo.

I like using egg as my main lunch fat/protein because it's affordable and I generally use nuts at breakfast time and meat during dinner. Any suggestions of adding a little variety to my egg-y lunches would be appreciated!

Thanks! Looking forward to trying paprika actually, I hadn't considered it before! Maybe if I'm feeling wild I'll use smoked.

How do you find your energy stability only eating one meal per day? Also I'm curious, how do you manage to fit all of that food in comfortably during those few hours? I had a big feed last night, much bigger than my usual dinners.. still woke up hungry. I generally need food within an hour of waking up or I'm dizzy and can't focus. I've considered the idea of trying two meals though, breakfast and dinner! might be an interesting experiment.

Vary from eggs so you don't get allergic. Try canned wild salmon once a week. Eat plain or mix with mayonnaise and I like a little relish.

Soft boiled eggs. Much tastier and it doesn't degrade the benefits of raw egg yolk. Dr. Mercola has some fascinating articles on the topic of consuming raw egg yolk and or whites.

Skip the lunch and eat once a day. You'll enjoy the benefits of autophagy and the catecholamines/hgh should* give you a boost when it comes to studying for those finals.

*I'm a student and it works for me(usually eat from 7-10ish)

Scotch eggs. Meatballs + eggs = deliciousness. Typically made with sausage, but I've used all kinds of meats (even tuna) and it alway turns out great!

If you dice up the eggs with some homemade mayonnaise, onion, celery, and sprinkle with paprika, you've got a half-way decent egg salad. Essentially the same, but it should be enough of a mix up for variety's sake.

I used to like to boil eggs, cut it in half and slather paleo-friendly mayo on the flat side
