Get-togethers with friends nourishes the soul as well as the body. Food is at the heart of community when you think about it. Most events, parties and time spent in celebration with others involves some type of food, traditions and favorite regional dishes. It is also seasonal, so in the Fall and Winter we eat more heavy warming food, and in the Spring and Summer our bodies tend crave lighter food. This works perfectly in eating locally. I encourage you to listen to your body. What is it telling you?
My Paleo Peeps is a fun way to serve deviled eggs. Take them to a get together, or invite some peeps to a picnic to celebrate Spring. Immerse yourself in community with others and nourish your body and soul!
I used local pastured eggs in this recipe. The yolks are yellow and full of nutrition!
Although I regularly make homemade clean mayonnaise with my immersion blender, I am in love with Primal Kitchens new Mayo made with avocado oil and completely clean ingredients! It is so good and convenient! I used it in these deviled eggs, or you can make or choose your own favorite brand. Here is my favorite homemade recipe, because it is fail proof. You need an immersion blender, and it is super fast!
My Paleo Peeps!
12 Pastured Eggs (Hard Boiled and Cooled)
1/2 Cup Good Quality Mayo (I used Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo).
1 Tablespoon Gluten Free Yellow Mustard (garlic free for Low FodMap like this.)
1 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt or Sea Salt
1 Peeled Carrot
1 Sundried Tomato for Wattle
Directions: Slice the eggs in half from tip to bottom. Remove the yolks and mash with the mayonnaise, mustard and salt. Put the egg yolk mixture in a quart size ziplock bag and snip off the end of the bag. Pipe the yolk mixture evenly into the egg halves.
Now decorate your peeps! Currants for the eyes, slice your carrot into beak shapes and skinny slivers for the feet, and take a small snippet of sundried tomato for the wattle! Refrigerate an hour or more before serving to set the filling.
