I love boiled eggs.. they are literally nature’s perfect snack!  Jam packed with nutrients, these little guys are completely portable and will last up to a week in the fridge.


  • Don’t use fresh eggs, they don’t peel well
  • Brown eggs and white eggs are exactly the same except for shell color.
  •  If you are boiling eggs, let them come to room temp first to avoid cracking
  • Use a pin to poke a small hole into the shell before boiling, this helps center the yolk (like in the photo below)
  • Boiled eggs will last 5-7 days in the fridge
