One of my absolute favorite foods is eggs. They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet. Taste super yummy a variety of ways, are quick as to prepare and are not expensive for what they are proven to do for your body. Boiled is an easy way to carry eggs if you are not hooking straight into them and it is one of the simplest healthiest ways to eat them. Don’t you just hate when peeling them becomes a monumentus pain in the behind if you score a stubborn batch? Well read to the end & I have a super easy addition that will make peeling your googie simple and fast every time!

So how do you take the headache out of peeling a boiled egg?-Add a tablespoon of bi-carb soda and a teaspoon of salt to the water. I cook mine for exactly 7 minutes, then straight into cold water to stop the cooking process and voila. You will have an egg that just wants to pop out of its shell!
