Healthy Easter Food Options: Deviled Eggs
It’s Easter week and with that in mind I’m sure many of us are noticing the Cadbury eggs, chocolate bunnies and jelly beans that line the grocery store shelves. And as the week progresses, more and more decadent treats will begin to show up and test your willpower. In my years of working towards balanced nutrition and clean eating a solution I have found to work well during special occasions and holidays is to plan and bring “alternative” healthy food option or two. These are options that you know will help keep you on track without making you feel deprived. In fact, many times when I’ve brought my “healthy” food contribution to family gatherings or group functions it becomes a fast favorite and to many people’s surprise- its good for them!
So I’ll get right to it- Here is one of my favorite variations on a popular gathering Hors d'oeuvre:
Clean Easter Deviled eggs Recipe is for 12 eggs
Hard Boil 12 eggs (cool in ice-cold water for easy peeling) peel and prepare filling:
Filling: Egg Yokes 1/3 cup Greek yogurt 1/2 tbsp vinegar 1 tbsp mustard 1 tsp honey 1 tsp salt Dash of black pepper Paprika (for dash on top)
Mix the greek yogurt, vinegar, mustard, honey, salt and pepper together with egg yoke and fill into hard boiled whites. Finish with a dash of paprika on top and enjoy!
Better yet, in conjunction with my recent blogs on understanding tracking your macros, here is the macro split breakdown for one FULL egg (so if you only eat one half, you can count this as half a serving).
