Avocado Deviled Eggs are the perfect little healthy low carb snack during the week or perfect finger food appetizer for any party!
Hi Everyone! Brenda here!. I am excited to be here to help Amee out with a healthy recipe post while she is recuperating from her surgery!
A little about me:
My blog, Sugar-Free Mom, focuses on the added sugars and processed sugars in recipes so many recipes are naturally sugar- free or low sugar using fruits to sweeten recipes. You will find many grain free, gluten free, vegetarian and low carb recipes on my site. I also tend to share tree nut free recipes as my youngest has a tree nut and peanut allergy.
Let’s talk about snacks!
I try not to mindlessly snack during the day but when I do snack I often lean toward protein and healthy fats to fill me up.
A fabulous filling protein snack for me that always keeps me satisfied is eggs. I hard boil a dozen a week and tend to make quiches and other egg recipes often as well. I love 1 minute muffins that just need an egg and a few simple ingredients for the perfect quick breakfast for a busy momma.
Recently though I was getting bored of my regular hard boiled egg snack and saw my two ripe avocados on the counter and immediately knew what had to be done to take my basic and “getting bored with” snack into a more spectacular one!
Naturally green is always my first choice and avocados are my Go- To snack any time of day!
In fact, I don’t know about you but I could just eat a ripe halved avocado, grab a spoon and maybe some hot sauce and I’m a happy girl!
Being that it’s St.Patrick’s Day, I thought a fitting snack recipe just HAD to have some green in it or just wouldn’t be suitable to post today!
While this obviously isn’t a very Irish kind of recipe, it’s naturally green, it’s got a healthy fat and it’s full of protein too and that’ll just have to do. 🙂
