Welcome to Diabetes Bites here on HealthiNation! Join Fiorella DiCarlo, a registered dietitian, as she instructs you on how to make delicious meals that allow you to manage and watch out for diabetes!
Today Fiorella will teach you how to make a crowd favorite, deviled eggs. Eggs are filled with protein, which is great in snacks because protein keeps you full and satisfied. In a diabetic diet, protein is the best tool you can use in order to lower and stabilize your blood sugar. Plus, the yolk contains lots of vitamins and minerals. So with all of these healthy benefits in mind, let's get cooking!
First, peel your boiled eggs. Once they're all peeled, halve them. Then, scoop out the egg yolks, place them in a bowl, and smash them up lightly.
Next, add light mayonnaise to the yolks. Using a light mayonnaise will help lower the fat content of the overall recipe. Sprinkle in the ground mustard and the salt. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix it all in.
Scoop up the paste and begin filling your eggs. Garnish with chives and paprika.
These are great to serve at dinner parties, picnics, or even to make as a light snack! Enjoy this low-fat, healthified version of your favorite deviled eggs!
