Dietitian Tip

Avocados are a good source of monounsaturated fat and lutein, which may protect vision.


  • 6 eggs, hard boiled
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced


Cut eggs lengthwise and remove yolks. Set aside half the yolks in bowl and discard the others.

In a medium bowl combine egg yolks, avocado, lime juice, mayonnaise, half of the parsley, cayenne pepper and garlic. Spoon mixture into egg whites and garnish with other half of chopped parsley.
