Deviled Eggs


Nothing screams springtime or Easter quite as much as deviled eggs. And, honestly, they can be a great food choice! They are a good source of protein and, therefore, a very filling side dish. The only downside to deviled eggs is that they can be rather high in fat. However, we have a tip to fix that! Instead of making your eggs with mayonnaise, try using low-fat plain greek yogurt instead (in a 1:1 ratio). Greek yogurt adds the same creamy texture and MORE protein but takes away the added calories from fat, so you can Eat This, Not That!
