What are the Carbs in Eggs?
Eggs contain a very small amount of carbs, but they are high in protein. For one egg, there is less than .5 carbs.
What's the Nutrition in Eggs?
Eggs are truly one of the most nutritious foods you can eat. And for those on Keto, they are especially good because not only are they loaded with vitamins and minerals, (B2, B12, B5, A, and Selenium) and are a high quality protein, they're are a good source of healthy fats!
As stated in this article from Healthline, " Eggs contain amounts of almost every vitamin and mineral required by the human body, including calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, manganese, vitamin E, folate and many more."
How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs
Add the eggs to a saucepan and pour enough cold water to cover the eggs. Add in a splash of white vinegar and pinch of salt.
Bring to a boil, turn the heat down to a simmer and set a timer for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, add the eggs in a bowl with cold water and allow to sit for 10 minutes before peeling. This method works perfectly for me every time and I find the shells are much easier to peel!
