Low-Fat Deviled Eggs

June 6, 2018

 Summer is (basically) here, and summer picnics are starting up! What’s the perfect snack to bring to those picnics? How about deviled eggs?!

 

All while growing up, I avoided these for absolutely no reason other than I thought I wouldn’t like them because I thought I didn’t like egg yolks. One glorious Penn State tailgate years later, I finally tried a deviled egg-- the rest was history.

 

Now if you put deviled eggs out in front of me, I can easily house an embarrassing amount in no time. The only problem with this? They’re often packed with fat :(

 

Between the yolks themselves and the mayo mixed in, the typical half of a deviled egg will run you around 5-6 grams of fat. Multiply that by the 3 or so whole eggs I could happily take down, and we’re looking way more fat than I’m comfortable spending on protein-packed “snack”.

 

My solution? THESE low-fat deviled eggs! This 3-egg snack will only cost you 9 grams of fat while delivering 18g of protein! Now we’re talking!

Low-Fat Deviled Eggs

Servings: 6 whole eggs

 

 

Ingredients:

 

6 hard boiled eggs emptied

 

3 hard boiled egg yolks

 

56g nonfat Greek yogurt

 

3-4 tsp yellow mustard

 

1-2 tsp dijon mustard (optional)

 

2 spoonfuls pickle juice *option: sub in 1-2 tsp white vinegar instead*

 

Sea salt

 

Pepper

 

Dill

 

Paprika

 

 

 

 

Directions:

 

1. Hard boil your eggs and let cool

 

2. Peel eggs

 

3. Slice eggs down the middle and pop yolks out

 

4. Discard 3 of the yolks, keep remaining 3 in a small bowl

 

5. Mash yolks with 56g of nonfat Greek yogurt

 

6. Mix in yellow and dijon mustard (I love mustard, so I tend to go around 4 tsp yellow, 2 dijon, but you can do this to taste!) 

 

7. Add 2 spoonfuls (regular kitchen spoon)  pickle juice OR 1-2 tsp white vinegar into creamy mixture

 

8. Stir in dill, salt, and pepper to taste

 

9. Use spoon to fill halved eggs OR if you have piping bags, pipe filling into eggs

 

10. Sprinkle with paprika and a little sea salt

 

11. Try not to eat all 6 at once…

 

*Nutritional information will vary based off of ingredient choices: 1 whole egg= 53 calories, 3g fat, <1g carbs, 6g protein*

These only take a few minutes to whip up and are a great mid-day snack, however- if you plan to make them in bulk to eat throughout the week, I recommend keeping the filling in a separate container and fill as you go as it can get a little runny after a few days inside the eggs in the fridge.

 

This recipe is too delicious to wait on, so go get those eggs boiling right now! You can thank me later ;)

MARIA'S FITNESS TIPS

#1 

Set goals! Set both long and short-range goals to keep yourself motivated. Be sure that the short-range goals will eventually lead you to your big-picture, long-range ones. Consider them stepping stones on the path towards something bigger.

 

#2

Do what you like to do. Don't just start doing something because everyone else is; find what you truly enjoy and do that. In the end, if you don't have a genuine interest in your workouts and lifestyle, you're going to hinder your progress.

 

#3

Switch things up! I know this may sound kind of funny after just reading #2, but as humans, we can get bored of doing the same thing over and over. As well, our muscles can get "bored" and we can plateau. Do not be afraid to try new things and incorporate change to keep you entertained and your muscles guessing!
