Hard boiled eggs are truly one of the smartest and fastest go to snacks. Packed with healthy fats and plenty of protein, they are a nutrition no brainer.
One large egg contains 70 calories, 7 grams of protein, rich sources of vitamin A, vitamin D, B6, B12, minerals zinc and iron, zero carbs and sugar.
In addition to the popular boiling method, steaming eggs is also an eggsellent choice! ( I couldn't resist)
Fill a medium pot with salt water and add a steamer rack, add eggs and cover. Boil water for 13 minutes.
They are best stored in the fridge unpeeled for up to a week, unpeeled for two days.
Some interesting alternative ways to eat eggs:
