The Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg

Article by Sabrina Williams

 

Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse, which makes them a great keto food. Like most ketonians, they are a huge staple in my keto diet, but after spending quite a lot of time frying them, scrambling them, poaching them, etc., I was eventually ready to embark on something different: deviled eggs. Those pesky eggs, however, can be a bit temperamental when it comes to cooking and peeling them. Several failed attempts to get my eggs peeled without losing large chunks of it at a time later, I found a method that is fool proof, and works every time, regardless of age or starting temperature.

The perfect, hard-boiled egg:

Step 1: Place the eggs in a pot, and cover with cold water to about one inch above the eggs.

Step 2: Place the eggs on high heat until they come to a rolling boil.

Step 3: Remove from heat, and cover the pot of eggs for 11-12 minutes.

Step 4: Pour the water off the eggs, and fill the pot with ice.

Step 5: When the eggs are cool, place one egg in a mason jar. Fill the jar until it covers the egg halfway.

Step 6: Slosh the egg around in the jar vigorously.

Step 7: Peel the egg under running water and voila! Perfection!

Step 8: Repeat steps five through seven with the remaining eggs.

I know it sounds like a bunch of steps and a lot of work, but if you've ever struggled to get eggs that don't look like they've been mangled (especially right enforce a gathering!), the results are worth it!

I started Keto January of 2017 and did what I thought was “Keto” but more like lazy Keto until November of 2017 . I was stalled for months before I decided to go with coach Lisa Carroll who taught me so much about reading food labels, vitamins, and really just paying more attention to my body than worrying about the scale.  I have many medical issues and understand it is a slower process for me as my body heals from all the damage done but I totally believe in this WOE to the point I am hoping to become a coach one day as well.

I started with coach Lisa nine months ago — long enough go grow and birth a baby! And with the work we did on roots of my eating issues I feel I really have had a rebirth of sorts. I no longer binge, no longer think about food 24/7 (yes, I even dreamed of food), no longer run to food for comfort, love, distraction or as a sedative or tranquilizer. She worked with me through three exceptionally hard events in my life and I stayed Keto strong through it all. I could not have done it without my coach.
