Low in Calories, Perfect Food For Dieters

Eggs are so low in calories and so beautiful on the plate. One of any size hovers around 100 calories, including boiled eggs.

Let's see how the dieter can put these golden-centered beauties to work in their weight loss plan...

Add to Salads

The next time you prepare a fresh salad filled with Mother Nature's Good Earth, try adding a sliced boiled egg to ramp-up the flavor.

Pair With Low Fat Gravy & Sauces

While gravy is generally a no-no amid diet time, it can indeed be part of a healthy diet. When commercially prepared gravy packets or jars of gravy are used, the caloric content is very easy to calculate at a glance.

Most contain about 50 calories per 1/4 cup so be sure to measure and don't over-do.

Try adding a sliced boiled egg to the gravy. Remember the flavors of the holiday and the giblet gravy? This is very reminiscent.

The most popular food to prepare out of boiled eggs is deviled eggs. You know the routine - smash the egg yolk, add salt, pepper, a dash of mustard, a spoon of sweet pickle relish - and Mayo, but this time, add Light Miracle Whip for zippy deviled eggs. Fill the whites and sprinkle with ground paprika.

Acidic Foods Compliment Flavors

In Summary, Calories, Daily Recommended Intake

But don't stop with the above recipe tips - just keep thinking of original ways you can incorporate boiled eggs into your weight loss plan. Because eggs contain significant protein grams they can assist in keeping the dieter feeling full for long periods of time - satiety powers.

One jumbo egg contains about 8 protein grams. That's quite a substantial amount.

Be sure to limit your egg consumption to one per day as recommended by the government agencies at this writing, and that includes other foods consumed throughout the day - as well as beverages, which contain egg.
