Bacon-Avocado Caesar Deviled Eggs

Recipe & content provided by Brent Totty

Deviled eggs are an appetizer favorite of many; but more times than not, they hide nasty seed oils that will throw your omega-3 to -6 ratio out of whack. Keeping your omega-3 to -6 ratio in the area of 1:1 to 1:4 is ideal for minimizing inflammation, so don’t let inconspicuous seed oils drag down your efforts.

Deviled eggs recipes almost always include mayonnaise, and you can trust that 99.9% of store-bought mayonnaise contains omega-6-heavy oils like canola or soybean oil. For this deviled eggs recipe, we used this Bulletproof-approved mayo recipe and added a caesar salad twist to kick these deviled eggs up a level.

These upgraded deviled eggs are a great source of vitamins B, D and A, as well as a good source of protein and high-quality saturated and monounsaturated fats. Putting these deviled eggs on top of a bed of leafy greens takes this recipe from snack to a perfect salad for lunch.
