Easy-to-Peel & Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs

Hard-boiled eggs are a staple at our house. My kids could eat them every day and the whole family love them as a quick breakfast, part of a healthy lunch, or even a high-protein snack.

The worst part about hard-boiled eggs is definitely peeling them. I recently found the best way to cook easy peel hard boiled eggs! I’ve cooked our eggs this way the past 3 or 4 times and they’ve turned out great! Easy peel hard boiled eggs every time!

If your family is like mine, eggs don’t last long. This easy way of hard-boiling leaves you with easy-to-peel eggs every time! Even if you’re like us and eggs don’t last long enough in your household to hard-boil older eggs – new eggs peel without a problem!

#BeFitAllYear 30-DayChallenge: FREE calendar, videos, and a GIVEAWAY!

Thanks to BeFit and Fit Approach, I’m super excited to have been given the opportunity to Jumpstart some healthy habits in 2016 and #BeFitAllYear. I’m even more excited to share the FREE 30-day workout calendar and videos with you, as well as give you a chance to win some of the BeFit goodies they’ve given me!

BeFitAllYear workouts, calendar, and nutrition product giveaway!

Confession: My 2016 health and weight loss goals have been off to a slow start. If I’m being completely honest, I’ve continued to gain weight after the holidays…

After losing 60lbs after my second child, I have really struggled to keep the scale going down. In the past year, I’ve added a part-time job to full-time staying home with the kids and the pressure has really decreased the amount of focus I’ve placed on my health. I’m feeling pretty discouraged lately…

I’m really feeling energized with this BeFit 30-Day Challenge. The best part is that the tools for the workouts are completely free! BeFit has put together an amazing series of videos, along with a workout calendar to help keep you on track.

I started this morning with the Dynamic Strength workout. It was fantastic! I woke up early, wandered through the dark to my office and got in a short and sweet strength training workout. Next to the tools being free, my favorite part is that these workouts are quick and effective – most are between 10-15 minutes. Toward the end of the 30 days, we’ll start to double up the workouts, but they still don’t take a huge chuck of time. Love that!

As a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I also got the chance to try out some of the great BeFit Nutritional Products. We have Chocolate Whey Protein, a PreWorkout, and Burn – a supplement to boost fat loss. I haven’t tried them yet, but I will keep you posted as I update you about my progress during the 30 days. For now, how about I open up the giveaway and give you a chance to win some for yourself!?

So, you know the workouts are free, short, and guided by a free calendar… So, who’s going to join me and #BeFitAllYear!?!

Fancy Mini Shrimp Frittatas {breakfast to impress, but SO easy!}

I’m a complete fan of shrimp for breakfast!

I mean, why not? It’s delicious and there isn’t a much better combination than shrimp, garlic, and eggs. So, when I was trying to figure out what to make for breakfast on Christmas morning I had a eureka moment.  I’d combine my egg muffins with my garlicky shrimp and eggs and we would have easy Fancy Mini Shrimp Frittatas.

It was a huge hit!

{Healthy} Tips and Tricks Tuesday #18

Hey all!

Well, it’s Tuesday again and time to share our healthy living / fitness tips and tricks or to look for support, guidance, or inspiration from others to make this journey a little smoother.

First of all, a big “thanks!” To Kristin J for helping take over Tips and Tricks Tuesday the past few weeks!  We had a great trip, but I got a major reality check when I returned – the bride of a wedding I will be in in the Spring asked if I would be free for dress shopping just before Christmas. Yikes!  So much for slacking during the holidays – I’m hoping I don’t have a complete panic attack when I see myself in those dresses.  Luckily, I have five months to cut that size in half!
