One of my Favorite Snacks

One of my favorite healthy snacks is hard boiled eggs.

I call them “free food” sometimes because they contain hardly any calories. Every site I’ve been to gives me different answers, but they are around 15 calories an egg. Just the egg white- not including the yolk. I think 15 calories for something that taste good and fills you up is hard to beat! I usually have anywhere from 2-5 as a snack. I need to figure out how to add them in meals to make them a little more exciting.

Lots of fabulous things about egg whites. Let me show you.

They are high in protein.

Low in carbohydrates.

{Not that carbs are a bad thing}

Low in calories.

Filling.

Delicious.

What could be better?!

It’s also super easy to make hard boiled eggs. I’ll tell you.

1. Fill up a pan full of water. Let it boil.
2. Once the water is at a boil, add the eggs.
3. Let them cook for 11 minutes.
4. After 11 minutes, take them out and let them cool.
5. Then put them in the fridge.

Totally simple. I don’t know how it could be any easier.

Oh, and I thought of one more thing too.

They aren’t terribly expensive.

Lucas loves ‘em too!

Okay, that was two things, sorry. I could just go on n’ on. Do you like egg whites too?

  1. I LOVE EGGS like that!!
    I do my hard boiled eggs a little different though. I put them in the water before they start to boil. When I tried it like you suggest, they cracked on me:( Then I boil them for 20 minutes from the time the water starts boiling. Then when they get done, I pour the hot water out of the pan, then “shock” them (put cold water and ice on them). Supposedly, shocking them makes them peel very easily…

    I'm not saying your method is wrong at all. Just wanted to share my way as well, LOL.

  2. I pour them in a bowl with a splash or milk (it makes them fluffy) then wisk and add to a pan to cook. When they're cooked add some salsa and voila! You can add fresh cilantro too- it tastes great.
