‘Not So Evil’ Devilled Eggs

'Not So Evil' Devilled Eggs via Nutritionist in the KitchI have an incredible love for eggs. Seriously, I love em’! Poached, scrambled, boiled, fried, sunny-side-up with runny yolks, oh yes, I could eat them every day – actually… I pretty much do eat them every day!

Even though I love eggs, I’m definitely picky about the ones I buy – I do not like to support the production of conventional eggs where the hens are kept in battery cages. I value the ethical treatment of animals, and try to support that the best I can – therefore I always go with organic free-range eggs! Not sure what the difference between “free-run” “free-range” “cage-free”  etc. means on egg cartons? Click here to find out!

'Not So Evil' Devilled Eggs via Nutritionist in the KitchHard boiled eggs are a super easy high-protein snack, and I always enjoy them with a simple sprinkle of salt and pepper! I decided to make a little snack the other day using hard-boiled eggs, but with a twist! Devilled!

Traditional devilled eggs are usually loaded with mayonnaise and can be pretty high in fat – so I decided to use something else to create the rich and creamy filling!

Hummus! Yep – simple, garlicy, smooth and rich, chickpea hummus! Not only is hummus tasty, it’s also a great protein source since chickpeas, even though they are a carbohydrate, contain a good amount of vegetarian protein!

'Not So Evil' Devilled Eggs via Nutritionist in the KitchI used some of the boiled egg yolks and mashed them with the hummus to add more healthy fats to the tasty filling!

And, since I also love a mix of textures I added some crunchy bell pepper and kale to the mix!

Colorful, textured, filling, and delicious – these “not so evil” devilled eggs made the perfect mid day snack!

IMGP5399And really, how pretty do they look?!

I think these devilled eggs would make the perfect party appetizer and I plan to make them again for my next gathering! They taste so rich and delicious, you’d never believe they were made without the heavy mayonnaise!
IMGP5417My hubby loved the flavours in these devilled eggs too – he’s a big egg lover like me, so this particular snack is going to become a household staple for sure!

The recipe also happens to be one of many in the upcoming Sisters In Shape Power Prep Program Meal Plan!

I’m so excited that I was asked to contribute healthy recipes to the program which will be available this November. The plan proves that competition prep CAN be delicious and that you don’t have to eat the same boring foods every single day to get fantastic results! IMGP5426If you are familiar with competition programs you’ll know that devilled eggs are definitely not a usual snack you’d see – but who says they can’t be made healthier and balanced?! Not me!

Next time you are heading to the store, grab yourself some organic free-range eggs and make this yummy, healthy version of devilled eggs! You won’t regret it!
