In light of clean eating and Easter I thought I would share that you can easily make hard eggs this year by baking them in the oven!
It is as easy as turning your oven on to 375 degrees, placing your eggs in a muffin tin, and baking them for 30 minutes. Wa-la! Hard boiled eggs-minus the boiling! I also run mine under cold water right after they are finished baking as it makes them peel easier.
What to do with all of these eggs?
You could have one of my favorite breakfasts by using the egg whites as a great protein source to coincide with your Natural Oats Oatmeal! This breakfast will fulfill your hunger and ensure that you have the energy needed to tackle your day!
You could do what I am doing and make the sharpie eggs above for your Easter dinner decoration. I can't wait to write personalized inspirational messages on each one to give to each family member Sunday!
You could bake those eggs for the Yummy Clean Eating Gracious Pantry Tuna Salad Recipe below! (I buy cage free, organic, natural brown eggs)
Bake them for for the kids to decorate!
Obviously, the options are endless! So let's make it easier on us and bake those eggs!
