Real Health in a Real World


Think exercise is a chore?  Don't have time?  No more feeling like a hamster in a wheel for hours on end.  Get results with functional strength training. 

Ingredients:  8 hard-boiled eggs, peeled.  1/4 cup chopped chives, 1/4 cup chopped parley leaves, 6 Tbsp Primal Mayo, Salt, Pepper, Paprika to taste. 

Add in to the food processor the Primal Mayo, the yolks from the eggs, chopped chives and parsley, and about 1/2 tsp of salt, and 2 tsp ground black pepper.  Blend until desired consistency is reached.  If it's too dry, add some more Primal Mayo, or you could also drizzle in a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Avocado Oil if you have it.  Once fully blended, taste to see if you need more salt.

Spoon yolk mixture evenly into the empty egg halves that you took the yolks out of.  Once they are filled, sprinkle Paprika on top, and garnish with any extra chives or parsley if desired.

I never really considered that deviled eggs could be considered healthy.  Growing up, the theory on eggs flip-flopped more than political candidates.  Eggs are good, eggs are bad, they are good just not the yolks, egg-beaters are better, no wait, eggs are good.  Talk about confusion.  Even if eggs are good, the deviled version was loaded with mayonnaise, which I don’t ever think was considered healthy.

What You'll Need

Small food processor, blender or hand mixer

And that's it!  These make a great snack, or side dish to a meal.  Serve these at your next cookout or gathering and see if anyone notices they aren't made with traditional mayo.  Make sure to hide a couple for yourselves for when your guests polish them off!  Enjoy!

Paleo Deviled Eggs

Things have changed thanks to the good folks at MarksDailyApple’s  Primal Kitchen.  They have finally come up with a healthy, paleo alternative to store bought, soybean and/or canola laden mayonnaise.  Traditional mayo was essentially eggs and oil.  But increasing shelf life, and providing stability has seen the addition of other not so favorable ingredients.  One could always make their own at home, but that’s a delicate process and let’s face it, just cooking a meal can be hard enough to fit in a schedule let alone making condiments. 

In steps Primal Mayo.  Made with Avocado Oil, Cage-Free Organic Eggs, Organic GMO-free Vinegar, and a little bit of Salt and Rosemary Extract, this stands up in any dish or recipe where mayonnaise is called for.  I’m still experimenting with it, but so far I haven’t been disappointed.  I highly recommend you at least try it out, especially in these bet-you-can’t-eat-just-one deviled eggs!!
