Although you can use a nutrition app to help you maintain a closer look at your nutrition intake, just having an idea of what foods to eat and appropriate portion sizing can be enough to keep you on track and feeling good.
Because keto is a macro-based diet, technically no foods are excluded - it just depends on how much you eat - specifically carbs!

How to Prepare Your Keto Deviled EggsPrep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
- 8 each egg, hardboiled
- 1 bell pepper, sliced into 1x1 inch slices
- 2 ounces feta, cut into small cubes
- 1/2 avocado, sliced into slices
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Step One: Hard Boil Eggs
The base of this recipe is hard-boiled eggs, which you can easily make at home or use Trifecta Hard-boiled eggs.
If you've ever tried to hard boil an egg, you know that timing and temperature are everything. The last thing you want is an undercooked egg or a green yolk. So here, are some quick tips to perfect your egg game.
You can cook eggs in various ways including: in the oven, in the microwave, or in a pot of boiling water. Whatever way you choose to cook your eggs, place the eggs in a bowl of ice water immediately after cooking. This will stop the cooking process and help keep the yolks from turning green.
- Hard-boiled eggs in the oven: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place individuals eggs in a muffin tin to keep them from rolling around. Bake for 25 minutes, then immediately place cooked eggs in a large bowl filled with ice water to cool.
- Hard-boiled eggs in the microwave: Place eggs in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with water. Microwave on high for 6 to 8 minutes, immediately place cooked eggs in a large bowl filled with ice water to cool.
- Classic hard-boiled eggs in a pot: Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with 1 inch of cold water. Bring water to a boil, and simmer for 12 minutes. Drain the eggs from the hot water and immerse them into a bowl of ice water to cool them rapidly and stop the cooking process. I recommend peeling them while they are in the cooling water as this can help make the process of removing the shell easier!
Step Two: Prepare Ingredients for Filling
Once you have your hard-boiled eggs prepared, you can gather the rest of your ingredients.
If you've opted to remove the yolks and take this recipe a step further by preparing the yolks as a filling vs simply cutting the eggs in half, feel free to complete this step now.
Measure out any other ingredients you decided to prepare your keto egg sliders with.
Step Three: Prepare Egg Bites
Next up, layer on your slider filling on one half of the egg then secure the top half with a toothpick, and bam! A delicious and simple keto-deviled egg slider ready to enjoy, squeeze a bit of lemon juice over each bite, and top with chives to finish.
