baked eggs and a cooler for the day


First let me preface this with the fact that I have tried a hundred dozen different ways to get the elusive ‘perfect’ hard boiled egg and they are either undercooked – which grosses me out. OR they are so hard to peel the Fatkid cries about it and makes me do it for him – plus you always lose a ton of the white when they are hard to peel.

So I pinned this the other day and decided to try it last night. BAKED EGGS! Who knew?? Seriously though – who knew this and hadn’t told me yet???

I put my eggs in a muffin tin and  preheat the oven to 325. I baked them for 30 minutes and then took one out, cooled it in water really quick and tested it. The yolk was still a little underdone (for me) so I put them back in for 5 more minutes – 35 total. I would suggest starting at 25 minutes and then cooling one off and testing it.

Once they are done – take them out and put them in a bowl of really cold water – I put ice in mine. This stops them from over cooking and helps them peel better.

The Fatkid tried one right away and it. was. perfect! Yay :) it peeled super easy and although there are little brown spots on the white from baking (don’t be surprised by this) they tasted perfect.

I also made some more balsamic dijon chicken with broccoli. This time I only used 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1/2 cup balsamic, 2 heaping tbsp of dijon mustard, basil, thyme and pepper. I didn’t feel like chopping anything and it turned out awesome again.

I mixed it with this awesome stuff I just tried for the first time – delis! And it only takes 90 minutes seconds – oops! – in the microwave – I was I super lazy exhausted last night and did not want to be up all night cooking.

And some quinoa bakes! It’s been a while since I have made these but I am getting sick of shakes post workout and these are the perfect combo of carbs and protein. This is obv. pre oven.

I have been not into meat as my protein at all lately – I think it’s because it’s 110 every day right now but for whatever reason I can have one or two bites and then want to yack.

So instead I made egg salad and tuna salad today. I also brought the balsamic chicken which I’m hoping will be okay because the balsamic flavor is so yummy I won’t notice that it’s chicken. I put spinach, baby tomatoes, cucumber and carrots in one large tupperware to munch on and brought an avocado and an apple too.

**Addition – for my egg salad I just use dijon mustard and pepper – for the tuna I use the same and add a lot of lemon juice.**

What is your favorite high protein vegetarian meal?? I need some ideas :)
