Avocado replaces traditional mayonnaise in this paleo, keto and whole30 deviled egg recipe. I always recommend pasture-raised eggs because research shows they contain more nutrients than hens fed a commercial diet in cages. In fact, pastured hens’ eggs have twice as much vitamin E and long-chain omega-3 fats, plus more vitamin D, and beta-carotene.

Enjoy these delicious gluten-free, dairy-free deviled eggs for breakfast, lunch, or as a snack.
