7 Healthy Recipes That Make the Most of Hard-Boiled Eggs
Eggs are one of those budget-friendly staples that deserve a home in every healthy kitchen. High in protein and a proven weight-loss aid, they're tasty scrambled, baked, or folded into an omelet, but hard-boiling is one preparation that couldn't be easier. Boil a batch on Sunday for an easy-to-grab, quick source of digestible protein that you can add to nearly any meal. Here are a few fresh ideas to help you make the most of this cheap and delicious superfood.
