Provencal Deviled Eggs
Jan Smith

Nutrient-Packed Eggs

One 72-calorie egg contains just 1.6 grams of saturated fat and a multitude of nutrients: vitamins A and B12, and the antioxidant lutein, which nourishes the eyes and skin. Many of these nutrients are found in the egg yolk, so eat both yolks and whites to take advantage of all the health benefits. Eggs got a bad rap for relatively high cholesterol levels, but new research shows they can be part of a healthy diet when consumed in moderation. In this recipe, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, and herbs add tons of flavor without many extra calories.
