Sometimes it seems like a food or nutrition study that comes out today contradicts one that came out the day before. Consumers are confused about what to believe, and rightly so. But not all science is created equal. Find out how to look beyond the headline-grabbing claims and judge the science for yourself.

Snack Recipes: Devilish Eyeball Delicacy

Devilish Eyeball Delicacy
Makes 3 servings


3 large, hardboiled eggs, chilled
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
6 small green olives with pimentos
Ketchup (if you like!)


Cutting board
Cutting knife
Lunch-size plate
Small bowl
Measuring spoons
Small spoon


1. Remove the shells from the boiled, chilled eggs. Toss the shells in the trash. Rinse the eggs, making sure no shell pieces are left on their smooth surface!
2. Lay the shelled eggs on a cutting board. Slice them in half long-ways with a cutting knife.
3. Place the egg halves on a lunch-size plate.
4. Carefully remove the yolks from the six halves by turning the egg halves upside down over a small bowl. Help the yolk out with a fork (or your clean fingers!) if you need!
5. Mash the yolks with a fork.
6. From a measuring spoon, tap in the mayonnaise. Stir the egg yolks and mayonnaise with the fork until it's a creamy concoction.
7. With a small spoon, dab the egg yolk-mayonnaise mixture back into each of the egg white halves, until all the mixture is back in the eggs.
8. Plop green olives with pimento side up (these are the "eyeballs"!) onto the yolk mixture of each half. Push them down a little so they stay put!
9. If you like, for an extra-gross eyeball delicacy, drizzle on some ketchup, too. Then you'll have "bloodshot eyeballs"!
