It is so exciting to see so many people getting vaccinated. We will finally be able to be with one another soon – but wait, it is Spring, the flowers are blooming. That means one thing and one thing only: bathing suit season is looming around the corner; and this year, I may be wearing one in public. Ouch. I love eggs but I don’t want to be the shape of one, which has somehow happened over the course of the last year. The extra glass of wine, the sweets, the kitchen drawing me in to cook – I am on a first name basis with my fridge we’ve spent so much time together.
So, while we are not nutritionists, we are putting our Negghead hats on to band together and find a way to drop the lbs and squeeze into a suit this summer and for us ladies, be more hour glass shaped than egg shaped.
So that brings us back to eggs, - “Eggs?!” you may say to yourself. “Aren’t I supposed to fast for 12 days and drink clear juices or water to drop the weight?” That is one way to lose the lbs, but being the egg obsessed humans we are we always want to bring our beloved eggs into the equation. As it turns out, the egg is pretty healthy and it is very healthy when it is hard-boiled. We think the hard-boiled egg is magic in a shell and magical when we “Get the shell outta here!”
