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!

Coaching is so WORTH it! Katrina was my coach & she gave me the little push I needed to succeed in my journey towards my goals. The support was so helpful in learning about fasting & guiding me through as I did my first fast & several others.

If you add up what you spend on Starbucks or beauty products, you can afford coaching. Think of it as an investment in your health...YOU are worth it! I’d rather pay for coaching than Dr bills & prescription meds.

If you're thinking about the Keto WOL and not sure how to start...get a coach, they are priceless. If you started this WOL and are struggling, getting mixed messages from different sources, not getting results, etc. get a coach...they are priceless. Ketovangelist Coaches have been there, done that and can save you a lot of struggle. Believe me, hind sight is 20/20. I started Keto September 6, 2016. Thought I couldn't afford a coach. Thank goodness when teetering between quitting Keto and getting a coach I made the right choice. I'm almost a year in and not only meeting, but surpassing some of my health, weight and fitness goals. And an added bonus is I am also making life long friends!

I went through menopause at 40 and began to really struggle with my weight. I was no longer seeing success with the "normal" weight loss plans that had worked in my 20s and 30s and I was at my wit's end. I hired Katrina as my coach because I could not wrap my head around eating fat. I was terrified I would do it wrong and continue to gain. Figuring out the food ended up being the easy part - fixing my thinking and setting reasonable expectations for MY unique journey was where coaching was truly invaluable. I was a relatively slow loser and having Katrina help me understand why my progress was slow helped me stay the course. She also encouraged me focus on the non-scale benefits of Keto such as better sleep and no more aches and pains instead of being singularly focused on the scale. Thanks to Keto, I now feel better than I did in my 20s! Courtney (48 years old).

I've been vegan (even raw and fruitarian) and vegetarian for around 15 years. When I turned 40, my body just struggled. My hair fell out in clumps, my skin was very dry and felt like crepe throughout the day, my body was tired. Most people come to keto wanting to lose weight but, with Mary's help, I focused on nourishing myself. Mary taught me to trust the process and just eat to hunger. That was tough for me: I was afraid of eating so much, I was afraid of all the fat and calories. After a couple of months, I did gain weight but that came with thick hair, moisturised and nourished skin, abs that I never thought I could have, and no more carb face. I highly recommend getting a Ketoevangelist Coach and being part of this knowledgeable and supportive group!
