Halloween Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs

Halloween Spooky Spider Deviled Egg  |  Delicious as it Looks

It's kind of ironic that I'm writing this particular post at the same time I'm figuring out that I'm intolerant to eggs. I hate to say it, but I just can't eat eggs anymore. I used to not have any problems with them, and they were an integral part of my diet. I could not have lost 25 pounds without them. But over the summer I started noticing some digestive issues again. I thought to myself, "Wait a minute, I thought I had this intolerance-thing all figured out! Now what's bothering me?" It took a while, but I finally realized it was eggs. So sad.


I took a month off of eating eggs and felt great. I decided to test them again this past week and unfortunately reacted to my delicious scrambled egg breakfast. I have read that if the digestive system is given a rest and a chance to heal, some people can go back to eating eggs. So that's what I'm going to try. For the next three to four months I am egg-free. Hopefully at the end I will at least be able to eat baked goods with eggs, if not whole eggs themselves.

Anyways, this recipe was just too cute not to share. And with Halloween coming up soon, I wanted to give my readers a fun idea. This recipe is from Food.com. I adapted the filling a bit to make it creamier and more low-FODMAP friendly. Spooky!

    1. It is a bummer! I think I'm ok with eggs in baked goods too, but I thought I'd take a break from anything egg for a while.

  4. Do you think duck eggs might be ok? I've heard some people do better with them if they can't eat chicken eggs.

  5. Hi, dianne. Your story is very moving. Regarding the eggs. Some documentation talk about how the heat radically changed the egg hence, isn't alkaline as opposed to consuming raw, which some folks can tolerate. Just two-cents worth.

    1. Heat radically affects the egg [or any food as so] which creates more of a burden to the digestive system as opposed to eating eggs raw. Just another school of wisdom. Thanks so much for your aesthetics.
