Are deviled eggs healthy?
The history of stuffed eggs traces back to the Ancient Roman Empire, where boiled eggs were served with spicy sauces as an appetizer. The course of their meals was defined with a saying “ab ova usque ad mala” – “from eggs to apples”.
Only around the 18th and 19th centuries, we got the word “deviling” to describe the process of making spiced food. Spicy deviled eggs were also known as mimosa eggs, stuffed eggs, Russian eggs, dressed eggs, or salad eggs to avoid any unholy association.
You can make stuffed eggs with loads of variations. We’ve made sure to create one of the healthiest possible versions of vegetarian deviled eggs without mayo or dairy.
Eggs have been enjoyed by people for a very long time. There is even archeological evidence that they have been consumed since the Neolithic period.
Eggs are incredibly nutritious! They contain vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, B2, B12, D, folate, selenium, calcium, phosphorus, and zinc.
One large egg provides 6.3 g protein, 4.8 g fat (including omega-3), and only 0.4 g carbs. This assures safe weight loss management and a possible ketogenic lifestyle.
Eggs are pretty much perfect for any occasion. They are extremely filling and relatively low in calories.
Why is there avocado in this easy deviled eggs recipe? It’s a pretty rhetorical question but we’ll still explain why.
One medium avocado contains about 21 grams of fat, allowing food to release from your stomach slowly, thus keeping you full for longer.
The fats in avocado present multiple beneficial qualities for weight loss. They are burned faster than other types of fats and reduce appetite.
Avocados are high in fiber and increase satiety. About half an avocado (100 g) contains 6.7 g of fiber and 2 g of protein, being a great choice for weight loss control.
This is why our avocado deviled eggs are a perfect weight loss snack to keep you full and burn calories.
Keto deviled eggs and weight loss
There are many proven benefits of a ketogenic diet, in which carbs are very limited and fat is increased. As a result, our body enters the state of ketosis to burn fat for energy instead of carbs.
Since carbs are eliminated in our healthy recipe and fat is raised, we’re dealing with a keto meal. Low carb deviled eggs can work really well for weight loss by increasing fat burning and protein intake.

Avocado stuffed eggs tips
We’re proud that our avocado stuffed eggs are not only healthy but also super easy and fun to make. You’ll only have to employ a blender to make the stuffed eggs mixture and chop the chives with scissors if you want to save time.
If you want that classic deviled eggs finish, put your mixture into a piping bag with a starry tip and pipe the filling into the egg whites, but this is definitely not necessary.
If you’re not very fond of coriander or jalapeño, adding them to the stuffed eggs filling is totally optional. But if you want your spicy deviled eggs even spicier and fierier, give it a try!
We hope making our low carb deviled eggs is easy and pleasing. Enjoy our healthy low calorie snack!
