The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

IMG_CBA44F2A4775-1 2.jpeg

The hard boiled egg is where fast food meets healthy food! A quick and easy source of protein, with approximately 6 grams of protein and 60 calories per egg. Perfect addition to any meal, or even on it’s own as a snack.

Here is my quick and easy recipe to help you make the perfect hard boiled eggs every time!

Ingredients

  • 6 large, cage free organic eggs

  • Bowl with ice cold water

Directions

  1. Place all 6 eggs in a large saucepan with water, allow water to cover eggs by approximately 1 inch.

  2. Cover your pan with lid and bring water to a boil over high heat.

  3. Once your water is boiling, set a timer for 7 minutes (or longer depending on your perfect egg - see below) and turn the heat down to medium-high heat.

  4. After your desired time transfer the eggs to your large bowl of ice cold water.

  5. Let the eggs cool for about 4 minutes, or until they are cool to the touch, then peel and serve!

Unsure how long to boil your eggs for? Here’s a quick and easy guide!

  • 4 minutes: soft boiled eggs

  • 5 minutes: sightly soft boiled eggs

  • 6 minutes: firm soft boiled eggs

  • 7 minutes: creamy hard boiled eggs

  • 8 minutes: firm and creamy boiled eggs

  • 9 minutes: very firm hard boiled eggs


Putting Together the Perfect Lunch

Lunch can sometimes be the most difficult meal to put together since we are typically out and about. Here are some fool proof ways to make the most out of your lunch! These rules apply for bringing your lunch or dining out.

PROTEIN: 4 oz for women and 6 oz for men (on average)

FAT: think healthy fat … avocado, olive oil, salmon

FIBER: avocado, chia seeds, flax seeds

GREENS: salads… pick any green you like!

Some meal options ….

  • Large green salad with 1/2 avocado, chicken, and olive oil and lemon as your dressing

  • Salmon, 1 cup of spinach, 1 avocado, and 1 cup of rice

Putting these meals together should be FUN!

Mix and match … there are seriously endless options! Find the foods you love, and mix and match so that you have 1 food item from each category.

Putting your meals together this way will keep you full longer, and help you reach your goals faster. Whether you are looking to gain weight, lose weight, add muscle tone or lower your blood sugar there is a combination that is perfect for YOU!
