Eggs are great on a low carb, or keto diet. They’re low in carbs, with only around 1g net carbs per large egg. They’re a great source of vitamins, folate, calcium, phosphorus, selenium and zinc. Eggs make a great snack on keto, and low carb diets as you can prep them ahead of time so you’ll always have something on hand if you ever get hungry.
What are deviled eggs?
Deviled eggs are hard-boiled eggs, that have been removed from the shell and sliced in half. The yolk is removed, and made into a filling that is placed back in the egg.
Are deviled eggs keto friendly?
The standard deviled egg recipe, found in any regular cook book and store bought deviled eggs are not necessarily keto friendly as they normally contain some additives that are avoided on both keto and low carb diets. But with some simple changse to these recipes, deviled eggs can be made suitable for both low carb and keto diets! You can also add a range of toppings such as salmon or prawns to spice things up.
How to store deviled eggs
You’ll want to store these deviled eggs, in the fridge inside an air-tight container for food safety reasons. I recommend not using plastic wrap/clingfilm to cover them, as not only is it bad for the enviroment but it could also stick against the deviled egg filling. If you’re serving the deviled eggs at a party, I recommend only removing them from the fridge just before serving to ensure they’re kept cold, to help preserve the taste and to avoid any risk of food posioning.
