green eggsInstead of Green Eggs and Ham, why don’t you enjoy some healthy fat fortified “green” deviled eggs!! Who’s says bariatric patients can’t enjoy the holidays!


• 10 large eggs, hard boiled • 1 cup egg substitute • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice • 1 firm-ripe avocado, halved, peeled, pitted and diced • 1/8 tsp black pepper • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion • 1 tsp paprika


Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out yolks and discard. Set whites aside. In a small saucepan, cook egg substitute over medium heat (or in a microwave-safe bowl, microwave egg substitute) until cooked through. In a food processor or blender, puree cooked egg substitute, lime juice and avocado thoroughly. Add black pepper and red onion to egg-avocado puree. Spoon mixture evenly into egg halves and sprinkle paprika on top. Chill for at least 1 hour. Serve chilled.

Please note, this recipe is appropriate for any patient approved to eat solid food.
