Sea salt and
freshly ground black

1 to 2
tablespoons salmon roe


Fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil.

eggs and cook for 8 1/2 minutes. Drain and when cool, peel the eggs under cold
running water. Allow the eggs to cool completely.

Slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Carefully
remove the yolks from the whites and place the yolks in a bowl. Mash the yolks
with a fork, add the avocado, mayonnaise, lemon juice and finely chopped
parsley and whip with a spatula or wooden spoon until smooth and creamy.

Place the egg white halves, cavity-side up, on a
platter and evenly spoon the avocado mixture into the cavities. Top each filled
egg with 1/2 teaspoon of salmon roe and sprinkle over the extra parsley leaves.

The Perfect Deviled
Egg Starts With Free-Range Organic Eggs

preparing any type of food, you must make sure to verify its source so that you
can be assured that you’re getting only the highest quality. This is very
important when it comes to eggs and other animal products. Beware, as most eggs
you see sold in supermarkets are derived from
confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), where animals are kept in dirty, cramped
spaces and fed an unnatural diet.

To ensure that
you’re getting only high-quality organic pastured eggs, find a local farmer who
allows their hens to forage freely outdoors. Pastured eggs are a wonderful
source of high-quality protein and healthy fats, as well as carotenoids like
lutein and zeaxanthin. Choline,
tryptophan, tyrosine and betaine are also beneficial nutrients found in eggs. For more

of good HDL cholesterol than those who don’t. Avocados may also help lower
triglyceride levels.
