Adding avocado makes ordinary egg salad so much more nutritious and interesting!  Did you know avocados contain plenty of lutein (81 micrograms of lutein per ounce of avocado) which helps prevent macular degeneration, fairly common in elderly people?  This is one way to enjoy your salad and ensure healthy eyes. Oh, and by the way, soft egg yolks also contain a lot of lutein.  Don't cook your eggs too hard.  Another fact about avocados - did you know they contain more potassium than bananas?  That's rather amazing as whenever anyone thinks of having more potassium, besides popping a tablet, many people reach for a banana, which is too high in sugars for a lot of people.
