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. The nutritional value of eggs contributes to safe weight loss management and a possible ketogenic lifestyle if that’s your thing.
Eggs are pretty much perfect for any occasion. They are extremely filling and relatively low in calories.
Take a look at our newest breakfast ideas with eggs: breakfast beans and eggs and healthy huevo rancheros.
Why is there avocado in this easy deviled eggs recipe? It’s a pretty rhetorical question but we’ll still explain why.
Avocados are a source of monounsaturated fats rather than saturated fat, which is commonly called “bad” cholesterol.
The fats in avocado present multiple beneficial qualities for weight loss. They are full of nutrients, reduce the risk of heart disease and help to reduce hunger.
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, making it 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
Although it is still a relatively new diet and evidence is changing all the time, there are some potential benefits of a ketogenic diet, in which carb intake is reduced and fat is increased. As a result, our body enters the state of ketosis to increase the amount of fat we use for energy compared to carbs. Although we don’t necessarily encourage a keto diet for weight loss, we know that some of you might follow this approach!
Since carbs are eliminated in our healthy recipe and fat is increased, we’re dealing with a keto meal (but that doesn’t mean it isn’t suitable as a snack if eat carbs as well!). Low carb deviled eggs can work really well for weight loss because of the increased protein and fibre intake from the avocado.
If you like the idea of keto deviled eggs and are looking for some more low-carb meals for weight loss, check out our compilation of fabulous low carb vegetarian recipes.
However, remember that the keto diet is not suitable for everyone, just like any other diet. So take into account any health conditions you may have and the possible risks.

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 (and maybe inspires you to try some more high protein low carb veggie recipes). Enjoy our healthy low calorie snack!
