Healthier Deviled Eggs!
Lightened up deviled eggs just in time for the holiday!
One of the parts I hate about holidays is that I always seem to lose all of my will power and binge eat on basically any food my fingers can get to. No matter how hard I try to change this, it never happens. So I decided to look at ways to make my favorite holiday foods healthier, or lighter, so that when I do binge out, at least I won’t feel as guilty! First up, the food item that is at every single holiday dinner I attend. You know it. Deviled eggs!
What you need:
1 Dozen Eggs
½ cup of Plain Greek Yogurt
1½ tsp of Mustard
2 tsp Chives
Salt & Pepper (optional)
I have been swapping out plain greek yogurt in many of my recipes now because it is lighter! I have used it in place of sour cream and mayo mainly. With a recipe like this where you swap it for mayo, you dump all that extra fat and calories. As an added bonus, you are getting more calcium and protein. So this really is win-win!
You will boil your eggs, separate the yolks, etc. just as you normally would for this recipe. The main difference with this recipe is just swapping that mayo out for the healthier plain Greek yogurt! And you can really do all kinds of fun things with this. Swap the chives for pickles. Use a healthy guacamole recipe, again swapping that mayo for the plain Greek Yogurt, in place of all these ingredients.
Do you have some tips for lightening up some holiday side dishes? I would love to hear them! Please leave a comment in the comment section below how you make your favorites on the lighter side!
