Lion's Mane Deviled Eggs 🥚🦁🐰

Hey there, egg-citing readers!

Deviled eggs have always held a special place in my heart, especially during Easter festivities. Whether they're classic or adorned as adorable little chicks, deviled eggs never fail to delight the taste buds! This year, I decided to kick things up a notch by infusing them with our Lion's Milk Shroomed blend and experimenting with natural egg dye made from red cabbage. It was a blast from the past, tapping into my inner child while avoiding those toxic store-bought dyes.

Did you know that the tradition of dyeing Easter eggs has deep roots dating back thousands of years? It all began with ancient Persian customs celebrating the new year during the vernal equinox. Eggs were adorned, symbolizing fertility and fresh beginnings. As the practice spread across Eastern Europe, Christians adopted it, dyeing eggs red to represent the blood of Christ and the concept of rebirth. Fast forward to the 19th century, and the Victorians popularized egg hunts and gifting eggs to children as treats. And here we are today, about to infuse Lion's Mane mushroom into our deviled eggs and dye them vibrant hues using red cabbage!

This recipe isn't just delicious; it's also a fantastic activity for the whole family to enjoy. As you dive into the fun, take a moment to contemplate your aspirations for this chapter of your life and how the vibrant energy of spring can breathe new life into your goals.

Look at this vibrant magenta color the dark purple cabbage water turned after adding the vinegar!
