Healthy Deviled Eggs

In the spirit of Easter, check out the following 3 benefits of eating eggs! Did you know?

  1. Choline, found in egg yolks, actually helps prevent accumulation of cholesterol & fat in the liver.
  2. Eggs contain lutein and zeaxanthin, nutrients that are great for eye health.
  3. The high sulfur content of eggs promotes healthy hair and nails.

If you’re coloring eggs this weekend for the holiday, make sure to save a couple to eat yourself too! Eggs are a higher quality protein source in comparison to milk, beef, whey and soy and have been said to support improved memory and thought. ☺ Very cool.

Our mom always requests these healthy deviled eggs at our family get togethers. It’s one of our favorite go-to dishes for any event or even just to keep around as a quick snack. Traditional deviled eggs are loaded with mayonnaise ~ not so great. Skip the mayo and swap it with healthy hummus and Greek yogurt instead with our healthy recipe!

 

Deviled Eggs

Makes 6 servings

  • 12 hardboiled eggs (save the yolks from 2 eggs)
  • 2 hardboiled egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite hummus
  • 1/4 dill relish (not the sweet kind!)
  • 1 tbs yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tbs Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cut each egg in half and remove the yolks from the hardboiled eggs, and place 2 of them in a small bowl. Mash them up and add the remaining ingredients. Mix until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture into each egg and enjoy!

    This is just a suggestion… My mom always adds a touch of Balsamic vinegar to her deviled eggs and everyone raves about them, not sure how that flavor would be with the dill relish but just a thought!

    This is genius! I am a little confused on the serving written. So eating all of the hardnoiled eggs made into deviled eggs is only 68 calories??
