Deviled Eggs gone... green?

So, today kicked off day one of thirty to thirty...one. Aka, Crazy Coleen Diet 2.0. Day one of clean has included thus far:

Detoxifying and Energizing Cranberry Cleanse Drink with my vitamins
Green Monster Smoothie

10:30 am - Snack #1
0% plain Chobani Greek Yogurt with raspberries, blueberries, blackberries
{which, BTW, were buy one/get one at S&S this week - woot!}

1:00 pm - Lunch
Bean Salad over arugula

3:30 pm - Snack #2
1/2 of an avocado deviled egg (OMG... wait for the recipe)
Handful of raw pistachios

Dinner... TBD
(But I have a few options..depending on what I'm feeling like by the time I get home)

Recipe of the day
Adapted from a few recipes I have found online
Ingredients:
6 hard boiled eggs, sliced in half the long way
1 avocado
2 tsp dijon mustard (I used grey poupon)
Sprinkle lime juice
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp paprika
Salt + pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. On a small plate or in a bowl, mash together egg yolks, avocado, mustard, and spices. Mix well to combine.
  2. Scoop mixture back into egg whites to create deviled eggs. Sprinkle additional paprika on top if you'd like. 
  3. Serve cold. 
Notes:
  • When I tried it all last night when I made it - the avocado mixture was a true delight. Today, while my little devil eggie was still delicious, some of the flavors had settled a bit. I would recommend probably kicking up the spice notch a bit by either pumping up the volume of chili powder/paprika, or adding in a little red pepper flake. 
  • Another option could be to use diced red onion and/or tomato - to make it more like a guacamole type concoction inside the egg. 
  • If you love deviled eggs the way that I do, and love avocado the way that I do... then really, the possibilities are endless.
