Egg-cellent Snack

As you may have gathered by now, I'm a huge proponent of "a little prep now saves A LOT of time later!"

Today I made hard-boiled eggs. They're a great snack, packed with protein, easy to make and easy to eat. They great for packed lunches or post-workout snacks! There are a million different ways to make hard boiled eggs. This is how I make mine:

Put the eggs in a tall pot, cover with water, cover and turn on the heat.

20 minutes after you turn on the heat, turn it off and use tongs to plop the eggs into a bowl of ice water. This helps the egg shrink away from the shell a little bit and they peel way more easily!

Once they cool, store them in the  fridge and you've got snacks for the whole week. Discard the yolks when you eat them for a snack and you've got pretty much just protein! You could also slice them up and put them on a salad...
