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!

After a year of committed keto, I needed a personalized plan to improve progress and healing. I hired a coach to help fine-tune my methods and immediately regretted waiting so long to hire one. Thanks to the coaching expertise of Elaina Wang, I am no longer stalled and have the confidence to properly fast which has improved healing for a couple of health issues.

I began Keto in January 2017, in February I decided to give MYSELF some LOVE and I got a KETO COACH! Linda was such a great Keto Coach she helped me understand Keto, it also was great to have a knowledgeable, Ketofied friend and teacher to help me through the maze of questions and concerns. Having a Keto coach, helped me so much, I am at my goal, comfortable in my skin, I understand the principles of the Keto WOE. I am so thankful and grateful for the knowledge and support I have received through the Keto coaching community!

My coach Elaina Wang, is the reason why KETO is now getting the results I never got doing keto by the book before. Best decision ever.

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!
