I am a 54 year old male, and have a heart condition (narrowed arteries of the heart) on going for many years now. I treat it with medication only. I also have "polymyositis" (according to my doctor) even though it was never actually proven with a muscle tissue biopsy. It is basically a muscle inflammation disease. My muscle CK enzymes are constantly elevated, and most days my chest muscles, arms etc feel like I have been beat with a baseball bat!
I try to eat 3 boiled eggs every morning if I have the time before work. I agree that it is one of the best sources of protein to build muscle. And I feel a lot better physically when I stay on the morning egg diet. I have them for supper some times as well. especially if I skip them in the morning.
I like them a bit soft boiled, and start them in cold water. I start timing them just as the water begins to bubble slightly. Time for 5 minutes and then let them sit in the boiling water (off heat) for about another 30 seconds to a minute. I find that first dipping them quickly in cold water (to allow handling) and then peeling them “under a trickle of hot tap water” works great most of the time for me. You have to get the water under that thin membrane under the shell.
Enjoy those eggs people! Oh...and by the way....I raise and manage laying hens. And my wife gathers about 15,000 eggs a day by hand off of a belt system.
Who woulda thought that I love eggs eh?
