Snack Attack: Not So Devilish Eggs


Ingredients:
1 dozen eggs
1 16 oz. container of Hummus (you can go with any variety you want)
A few pinches of Paprika
A handful of slivered almonds

*Hard boil the eggs. Cut the eggs in halves (length-wise) and remove the yolk. Fill the hole where the yolk was in each half with a scoop of hummus. Top with a few raw, slivered almonds and a pinch of paprika. Do this for each egg half.

Why we like it: Deviled eggs are a typical and easy snack but hardly a healthy one due to the yolk and mayonnaise concoction that makes the deviled egg so devilish.
Hummus (rather than a yolk-mayo mixture) cuts the fat and adds iron.
Paprika adds a bit of Lycopene.
Almonds provide some good fats (yup, such a thing exists) that help lower cholesterol.
Egg whites are always a great source of protein.

*How to hard boil an egg: Put all the eggs in a pot and cover fully with cold water. Cook until water boils. Then boil the eggs for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from heat and rinse under cold water.

Talk about a healthy snack.

It's kind of like creamed/mashed garbanzo beans (chick peas). Usually mixed with sesame tahini and spices. It's low in fat and relatively low calorie too. It's a very popular Middle Eastern & Mediterranean food.

What's hummus? Everytime I think of it I think of Date Movie where her dad is obsessed with hummus. Kind of makes me want to :barf:
