feature food friday: hard boiled eggs

Posted Oct 04 2009 11:13pm

I am trying to vamp up my protein intake a bit more. Don't worry I am not going Atkins on all ya'll, just wasn't getting much in the first place. So I hard boiled a bunch of eggs so I can get a little more each day.
We all know, I love eggs! Remember this old post? Eggseptional!
I found a little more info about the health benefits whilst googling the calories to track for myself.
