Goat Cheese Egg Salad with Red Beets

I was in the mood for egg salad one day but not an ordinary egg salad so I just started mixing some of my favorite ingredients. If I do say so this turned out delicious. I will caution that this egg salad is very rich so just eat a smaller portion with a wonderful salad of fresh vegetables.  My philosophy has always been that you can eat well staying thin and fit if you use portion control of rich foods. I like to balance my meals with more greens and fresh vegetables less high caloric foods. If I make and eat a rich dish I watch my portion.  Also exercise is essential for staying fit and healthy. Find a physical activity that you enjoy to incorporate into the fabric of your day then you will always have time for exercise!  Back to food I do believe that presentation is so important even if you are eating alone, make it look good!  I made a colorful salad placing a small amount of egg salad in the center, drizzled some balsamic vinegar  for a beautiful and wonderfully tasting dish.  Did I mention so easy too!
