Orgasmically Good Deviled Eggs with Bacon and Dill

Posted in Real Food Recipes, Side Dishes, Snacks | 1 comment

I just love eggs. They are a cheap, delicious superfood that nourishes my family’s body and soul. And springtime is when the hens start laying again and when many religions and traditions include eggs in their rites as a symbol of fertility and abundance. This means there is often a surplus of hard-boiled eggs around.

These raw energy bars are absolutely packed with protein, healthy fats, low-glycemic carbs, enzymes, vitamins, omega-3s, calcium, magnesium, selenium, iodine and zinc—and they are yummy and will keep you going for a good while. They are also great for anyone on a Paleo, Primal, GAPS, SCD, low carb, raw or vegan diet.
