HOW TO EAT EGGS AT SCHOOL

Unless you have restrictions or practice a vegan diet, eggs are the single best food you could choose for breakfast. Pair them with avocados and you are setting your body/brain up for an excellent day.

Eggs are considered a 'complete protein' because they have all 9 of the essential amino acids our bodies but can't produce on their own. Eggs have historically gotten a bad rep for being high in cholesterol, but it's actually GOOD for you cholesterol (do your research! don't blindly listen to what you hear!). Eggs also have protein, vitamins, minerals, and GOOD fats (key word: good - just like avocados!). Bottom line: eggs are awesome for your health and keep you full. Win win for teachers who are in the market to stay full. 

I've found that the best way to enjoy eggs at school is to either soft or hard boil 4-5 eggs at the beginning of the week (see below for boiling instructions), pop them in a glass container, and leave them in my fridge at school (or bring one a day if you don't have a fridge). 

Then, I peel them and spill/slice them onto fresh toast at school, top with salt/pepper, and pair with another slice of avocado toast if I'm feeling super hungry. Alternately, you could combine all the ingredients on just one slice.

Soft boil: bring pot of water to a boil over high heat. Turn the heat to low, add eggs, cook for 4-5 minutes. 

Medium boil: bring pot of water to boil over high heat. Turn the heat to low, add eggs, cook for 7-8 minutes. 

Hard boil: put eggs in pot, cover with cold water, bring pot to boil over medium meat, cover, remove from heat, leaves eggs in hot water for 8-10 minutes.
