Veggie Deviled Eggs

Technically where I live is considered the suburbs, but it feels more like I live in the country because there are farms and open fields surrounding my street.  A lot of my neighbors have chickens, and so we get fresh eggs shared with us all the time.   There is a definite difference between fresh chicken eggs from my neighbors, and eggs I buy from the store.  The yolk is bigger and more yellow, and tastes amazing!  I almost always have boiled eggs in my fridge because it makes a great high protein snack or breakfast side.  

Deviled eggs are just a fancier version of a boiled egg – and they are really delicious!  This recipe includes fresh, sweet crunchy veggies for a super nutrient packed snack.   Instead of mayo, we used Greek yogurt giving it a tart flavor, while lowering the fat and providing even more nutrition.  These are definitely a power house when it comes to nutrients!

What I was expecting when I opened the package was the bitter taste when I put a spoonful in my mouth. But after asking around on Instagram I got tons of great feedback and ideas. I realized if you combine them with something sweet, the bitterness subsides and tastes like rich dark chocolate.
