Over the past year, millions of Americans have spent countless hours in the kitchen preparing and perfecting meals and treats. It’s time to put those new skills and recipes to use, as many offices and schools begin to reopen – you (and your kids) need snacks to keep full and focused throughout the day.
There’s one treat we recommend time and time again. It’s packed with nutrients and guaranteed to boost energy. Can you guess it? That’s right: a hard-boiled egg.
An Egg-cellent Choice
Whether you prefer them scrambled, fried, poached or our favorite, hard-boiled, eggs are one of the most versatile foods available. In fact, the average American eats approximately 279 eggs each year!
Hard-boiled eggs are low-calorie and a major source of protein, making them an excellent choice for both children and adults. In fact, they are a better option for long lasting energy compared to many other “junk” foods or snacks that may give you a boost of energy in the moment. The Negg® Egg Peeler makes it easier to shake up your routine so you can opt to eat healthier.

A large egg takes about 11 minutes in boiling water for the perfect egg.
