Health Benefits of These Keto Deviled Eggs

Fantastic Source of Protein

If you’re looking for a good source of protein, look no further than eggs. In fact, eggs (specifically egg whites) are considered “the perfect protein.”

Why is this?

Because eggs not only contain all of the essential amino acids that you need to survive, but they contain them in the ratio your body needs.

In addition, eggs have a superior digestibility score when compared to most other sources of protein(i.e., The amino acids are digested and absorbed well). These values are often described as the “biological value” (BV), or “PDCAAS score” (protein digestibility corrected amino acid score). According to research on protein quality, eggs get a perfect score for both BV and PDCAAS[*].

May Boost Metabolism

Spicy paprika, chipotle, and hot sauce all contain the compound capsaicin, which gives these foods their spicy kick.

Capsaicin has been shown in numerous studies to increase metabolism  and promote weight loss. It seems to work by boosting your body’s energy expenditure and specifically targeting your fat stores as fuel. So don’t go light on the spices if you’re looking for a little metabolic pick-me-up[*][*][*].
