Thanks to the folks at The American Egg Board for sponsoring this blog post. All opinions, as always, are my own.
Enjoy Eggs Anytime of Day
In fact, one large egg offers an impressive 6 grams of protein. This is high-quality protein, meaning it's easy for your body to utilize.
Eggs also offer up the nutrient choline, which is really important for brain development during pregnancy—in fact, many would argue it's as important as folate!
Choline may continue to positively impact cognition later in life, beyond the baby years. Eggs offer so many nutrients, so get the truth about eggs and cholesterol.
How Do I Eat My Eggs?
As part of its "How Do You Like Your Eggs" campaign, The American Egg Board wants to inspire people to break out of the ordinary and think of all the ways to enjoy eggs.
Well, how do I like my eggs? Here's my answer: While I love eggs in traditional dishes like omelets, I also love to enjoy them for eating occasions beyond breakfast—such as snack time.
So I decided to bring one of my favorite snack recipes to you, which just happens to feature nutrient-rich eggs.
How to Make Deviled Eggs Without Mayo
You've probably had traditional deviled eggs at least once or twice. Because I'm a registered dietitian nutritionist, I'm always thinking of ways to add even more nutrition to my favorite dishes.
So I decided to make these deviled eggs with no mayo, aka healthy deviled eggs! Instead, I added avocado, as well as lemon juice, which contains additional choline. When you add the avocado to the recipe, you also add heart-healthy fats.
Are deviled eggs healthy? They absolutely can be. I made these deviled eggs without mayo by combining hard-boiled egg yolks, avocado, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, and black pepper in a food processor.
Once the egg white halves were ready to fill, it was game time! I added the yolk mixture into the egg whites halves–see my tip below about how to create a homemade piping bag to easily put the filling into the egg!–and topped the creation with black pepper and smoked paprika.
You can eat these deviled eggs with paprika for a snack like I did, or you can serve them as an appetizer at your next dinner party. The paprika deviled eggs will quickly become one of your favorite smoked paprika recipes!
If you're not a fan of paprika, you can use chili powder instead. And if you don't have any lemons on hand, feel free to use lime juice instead.
And when it comes to deviled eggs nutrition, you can't beat the fact that each serving of these smoked paprika deviled eggs is only 50 calories! If you're going to save these for later, make sure to cover them tightly with plastic wrap to store in the fridge.
If you don't have any paprika on hand, other spices that would work for sprinkling on top of the eggs include cayenne pepper and garlic powder.
