Traditional celebrations often include holiday dish favorites that are generally loaded with unhealthy oils, chemicals and preservatives that can overload us with calories, making us feel lethargic and toxic.

This month's recipe from Tasty Tip Chef Kelli Rose is a healthy makeover of a celebration food favorite – egg salad!
