I've been posting a lot of egg recipes lately.
Eggs are an inexpensive yet incredible source of energy and a great choice when it comes to weight loss and overall health.
They are high on the satiety index (they keep you fuller for longer so you don't overindulge later in the day), contain Omega 3s, a complete B vitamin profile, choline and lecithin. Notably, choline and lecithin help develop healthy neurotransmitters and nerve impulses, and maintain healthy cell membranes throughout the body. For more information on the health benefits of eggs, read more here. It's important to note that pasture-raised hens produce a better quality egg and more nutrition than conventional. If you want to introduce more organic protein into you diet, but are on a budget, eggs are a great way to do so.
This recipe is a healthy twist on the old fashioned deviled eggs your mom used to make. With only 2g of sugar and a whopping 30g of protein per serving, this recipe will keep your sugar balanced and hormones happy while you work towards your health goals. Eat as a snack on the run or pair with a salad for an easy summer meal at work or the cottage.
This recipe is also paleo friendly!
4 eggs (hard boiled)
1 can tuna (drained)
1 stalk green onion (chopped)
Sea salt & black Pepper (to taste)
1/2 tsp paprika (optional)
1/2 cucumber (sliced)
Hard boil your eggs.
Once cool, peel the eggs and slice them in half. Remove the yolk and add it to a bowl.
Add in the tuna, avocado and green onion. Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste. Mix and mash very well and then stuff the mixture back into the eggs.
Sprinkle with paprika and enjoy with cucumber slices on the side.
