Here is a recipe that is just in time for the holidays because as we all know there are always, always healthy alternatives of some of the holiday constants. And just think any little corners that you can cut now, will show after the holidays. I love these deviled aggs because the vegetables give it a bit of a crunch, yet it is still creamy like those deviled eggs we all grew so much to love. If you really want to knock off the calories, I know you can find non fat mayo and that will lower the count even more. But remember dont tell the whole fam how healthy they are because they just may be a little hesitant to try if they think that they are too healthy!

Do these comments work?

If so I have a question for Chalene!

Mmmm, I have to try those!

If you like egg salad, my mom taught me a decent recipe (though I don't know the calories on it...)

12 hard boiled eggs (this is usually for large parties), chopped... discard 6 egg yolks
8 oz. fat free cream cheese
1 medium onion, diced
12 oz. green olives (with or without pimentos), chopped

Mix well and we serve it on 9 grain or pumpernickel bread slices.

Thanks for all your recipe ideas Chalene! Lovin' every minute of Turbo Jam too!

I love Turbo Jam and would like to find somewhere in Massachusetts to do it in a group. Can you help me?
