Healthy Deviled Eggs


 
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a fabulous relaxing weekend. We did. We had a rain storm in California. A much needed rain storm. It was nice to hibernate indoors and spend time together. It reminded me of Oregon. It was good for the 2 days it lasted and now the sun is back and the forecast is for 70 degrees. I am one happy girl. Everything is fresh and clear and I am ready to hit this week running!

Today I am bringing you an appetizer that is low in sugar, high in phosphorus, riboflavin,  selenium, and vitamin B12. So yes, these are healthy. My secret? I always use full fat Greek yogurt mixed with a little vinegar, salt, and pepper as a mayonnaise substitute. It tastes the same and is so much healthier for you. I use full fat because I believe in fat. Our bodies need fat. If you buy anything that is skim, fat free, reduced fat, it just means they have added fillers. Fillers are so unhealthy and I believe in trusting God's ingredients, before I trust man's. 


My family and I have always loved deviled eggs, but I have tried to limit making them because of the mayo content. Now they are guilt free because for two of these scrumptious deviled eggs you get a small 83 calories, which makes this a great healthy snack or appetizer. So have your eggs and eat them too!
