Incorporating eggs into your meal plan is a great idea. Eggs are not only packed with protein, you will also benefit from riboflavin, folate, vitamins B6, B12, D, and E, along with iron, phosphorus, and zinc.
It’s always nice to have boiled eggs on hand for a quick snack or addition to your morning oatmeal or afternoon salad. Making hard boiled eggs might seem as easy as boiling water, but that’s not always the case. So I have a few tips to help you enjoy this powerful super food.
Place eggs in saucepan and cover with cold water to one inch above eggs. Bring to boil, then remove from heat. Cover and let stand 18 minutes. Immediately cool in an ice bath of cold water and ice to prevent further cooking.
Roll the egg between your hands to warm it up. This will loosen the shell from the egg for easier peeling. If the shell is still stubborn, submerge the egg in cold water while peeling.
