A key to keeping your calories in check, fueling your body for energy, and saving money on drive thru foods is to be prepared with healthy snacks when you are on the go! One of my favorite snacks are hard-boiled eggs. I take about 30 minutes to prepare this (and many other things) for the week. It makes a huge difference in what I eat for the week when I take the time to do this!
Here is a great twist to the hard-boiled egg. Sometimes you just need a little something to give it pizzazz!!
Hard boil your eggs. Place in refrigerator before peeling. It makes that process a little easier!
Peel eggs. Place in snack sized plastic bags. (Or small plastic containers) Place in a container in the refrigerator for easy grabbing.
Buy or make your favorite salsa. Keep it in a container close to your hard-boiled eggs.
When you are ready to leave the house, grab an egg (or two!) and salsa. Slice your egg. (Don’t slice all the way through!) Place a scoop of salsa in it. Zip up bag! If you don’t feel like slicing, then just dump a scoop in the bag!
It’s ready to rock and roll with you!
What are some of your favorite snacks to pack? How else do you eat your hard-boiled eggs?
This is great!! I work from home, so grazing can be a problem for me since I’m lazy and any snack that takes much prep is a no go. This sounds super yummy!! Thank you!!!
Raisins and peanuts with m&ms
I LOVE this! Just pinned it to try these at home. Great tip Clare!! Thanks.
I have a few favorite snackies; one is I’ve been making my own trail mix (dried mango is amazing in a trail mix). I also make my own granola bars though I have to watch it as I can eat too many of them. 🙂 I’ll also do a snack sized bag of grapes with a cheese stick or baby bel cheese round. Finally you can’t go wrong with an ounce of almonds in a baggie.
I like to take out the yolks and put a little hummus in them. SO YUMMY!!
I love peanut butter with agave honey on wholegrain tortilla. Roll it up and your good to go!!
What a great idea! I wouldn’t have have thought to do that. I usually boil myself a bunch of eggs, and then take them out one (or two) at a time and eat them like deviled eggs (or “double eggs” as my kids call them, they love them, too!). I have a delicious recipe for homemade salsa, but it doesn’t usually last long 🙂 I am going to be making some for a cookout in a few days, I will have to try your idea!
The salsa pairing is great, and I like Jamie’s idea too– I’m not big on the fat and cholesterol in the yolks, and I love hummus! Thanks for the tip!
