The Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg

 

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!

For a person who has struggled all her life with yo-yo diets for the first time since finding keto and Ketogenic Lifestyle Coaching I can say I have officially committed to a lifestyle of eating. After 1.5 years of being strict keto I am still learning from the coaches. I stick with Ketovangelist because of the knowledge, support, and guidance they provide.

Ketogenic Lifestyle Coaching has changed my life. This is not something I say lightly. I went from prediabetic, obese, and frustrated from 40 years of failed diets and “I will start on this new diet on Monday” to normal weight, perfect blood glucose, amazing energy, and some bonuses like my allergies are gone, my skin looks 15 years younger, and chronic digestive issues are a thing of the past. More importantly, with the support of my coach I have stopped dieting and started living!

I contacted [my coach] for a Macro Eval when I stalled after an initial 30 lb weight loss. She was very thorough and spot on with two major things that were stalling my progress. She was wonderful to talk to and very understanding. I lost another 10 lbs in the month following. I would highly recommend her as a coach. As a matter of fact both my sister and myself have just signed up for Linda's 8 week course called Beginning, Maintaining, Sustaining. If you are serious about this WOL, I would highly recommend a Coach!

THANK YOU KETOVANGELIST COACHING!!

I enlisted Elaina’s help with a macro evaluation and then with email coaching. What a wealth of knowledge! She helped me to understand that I was insulin resistant, which was causing me to lose weight slowly. She also suggested that I stop ALL sweeteners, including diet drinks so that my body wouldn’t elicit an insulin response. The result? I started losing weight again!

She also told me not to compare my journey with other folks’ journey because we are all different; that was a huge piece of encouragement for me.

I would recommend coaching to anyone wanting to get Keto "down pat." I met with Linda via the computer once a week and she helped answer my questions; suggested resources such as websites, books and recipes; helped with macros; provided much needed support and so much more.

I knew that I personally needed accountability and by having once a week meetings, she held me to that while I adjusted to the changes in my life due to Keto.
