Hard boiled eggs are easy to prep.  They made great snacks and add a pop of complete protein into your meals on the fly.

Eggs are often times linked with high cholesterol but, eggs are actually a healthy complete protein and won’t affect cholesterol when paired with the right types of

I love hard-boiling a batch of 6 eggs at once.  This way I can have grab-and-go protein for 1-3 days.

TIP:  Hard boiled eggs will last up to 3 days in the fridge.

I recommend only using free-roaming pasture-raised, organic eggs.

They taste better and they’re not fed GMO grains so they’re healthier and MUCH better for you than commercialized eggs.  Happy chickens make happy eggs. 🙂

Enjoy the following hard boiled egg recipes guilt-free as a snack, at a party, or during the holidays. I always use these recipes and tips to my clients during Easter.

  • 6 organic eggs


  • Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water.  This helps reduce the risk of cracking the shell.
  • Turn the burner on to medium-high heat, gradually bringing the water to a roaring boil.
  • Let boil for 1 full minute then reduce to low heat.
  • Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove from the burner, drain the water, then let sit for a few minutes until close to room temperature.
  • Transfer the eggs to your refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Softly crack the egg on a hard surface, breaking the shell before gently peeling the membrane and shell off.  TIP: Put the hard boiled eggs (3 at a time) into Tupperware filled with cool water and shake lightly until the shells come off)
  • Rinse with cool water and place on a plate lined with paper towels, and repeat with the rest of the eggs you’ve boiled.
