As a health nut and busy working mother of 3, I am someone who is always looking for a high protein snack, I have found that eggs are something that appeals to nearly everyone and I tend to enjoy often! With so many recipes and ways to cook them, they rarely fall on that list of ‘things I’ll never eat again’. Eggs are easy to eat, not too messy and great for on the go eating (I know most of us are looking for healthy on the go snacks!).
In fact, eggs are a great source of protein that contains ALL of the essential amino acids that our body needs to build and repair muscle! To get all the benefit of an egg, you must eat the entire egg. Organic , cage-free eggs are always a better choice if they are available

Below you will find a recipe to make the perfect HARD-BOILED EGGS. You may not need this recipe if your boiled eggs turn out perfect every time and you’ve never have a problem with the membrane sticking to the white of the egg. However, if you are like me, you’ve tried many times and only occasionally got it right… the recipe below will ensure you have EASY TO PEEL eggs every time!!
RECIPE FOR PERFECT HARDBOILED EGGS
- Place the eggs in a pot of COLD water. Be sure there is at least an inch of water above the top of each egg. The idea is to stabilize the temperature between the water and eggs.
- Place the pot with the eggs and water over high heat until the water comes to a full boil. IMMEDIATELY take the pot off the heat and cover with a tightly-fitting lid. The eggs will continue to cook from the heat of the water.
- Let the eggs sit in the pan in the hot water for 12 minutes for medium eggs, 15 minutes for large eggs and 18 minutes for extra large eggs. USE A TIMER! After your timer goes off, drain water and replace with ice cold water. Let the temperature between water and eggs stalilize again and you’ll have the perfect BOILED EGGS! ENJOY and give yourself a pat on the back for choosing a healthy and natural snack!
