The Many Roles of Eggs
While eggs sometimes get a bad rap for their cholesterol content, they're an inexpensive source of high-quality protein and, in moderation, can be a good addition to your diet.
Think beyond breakfast and hard-boiled eggs for deviling or making a quick egg salad. Replace half (if not more) of the mayo in your recipe with Greek yogurt to lower fat and calories, and experiment with new ways to flavor your salad or stuffed eggs. Try a sprinkle of curry powder, a dusting of cayenne or add in a few drops of truffle oil to give your egg dish an indulgent, earthy flavor.
