Dysfunctional Chef: Warning–One Must Hard Boil Their Eggs Correctly!

The Hard, The Discolored – from Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Weight Loss Expert, helping you to let go of that which weighs you down!

While perusing and cruising the vast world of food and recipes, I stumbled upon one recipe that warned, “One must hard boil their eggs correctly.” Correctly?  You mean you don’t just boil them?  It’s more complicated than that??? My head is spinning …

…And I’m guessing that if I didn’t know how to correctly boil an egg that there are two or three others out there who are in the dark. So, for those of us who mistakenly thought all you had to do was toss an egg in boiling water and wait for it to get hard, here follows some hard boiled vital information on how to boil an egg.

How to Hard Boil an Egg the Correct Way

1. Do NOT use fresh eggs!!! They are difficult to peel. It’s best to use eggs that are near their expiration date.

2. To help center the yolks in the egg, be sure to store your eggs on their sides in the fridge for approximately 12 hours. Easy enough to do. Just seal your egg crate up with tape and turn it on its side.

3. Take eggs out of the fridge (no longer on their side) and bring to room temperature. They must be room temperature.  That said, if you take them straight from the fridge, simply run warm water over them for a minute or two.

4. Place eggs in a single layer in a pan with enough cold water to cover eggs. Bring water to boil, remove from heat, cover tightly with a lid, and leave eggs for 17 minutes.

5. Place eggs under running cold water to cool quickly. This is also known as “coddling.” This will help prevent discoloration of the yolk and will also help to make the peeling process run more smoothly!

6. If you don’t consume your hard boiled eggs within a few hours, do refrigerate. And note that hard boiled eggs in the shell can be refrigerated up to one week only!  Peel and Eat — or — Don’t Peel and Refrigerate.

#OneWord Thursday: Say #YES to Love

Say YES to Quirky Wisdom - Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Weight Loss Expert ... Come Fly With Me!

Say YES to Quirky Wisdom – Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Weight Loss Expert … Come Fly With Me!

The great teachers tell us that you cannot start seeing or understanding anything when you start with “no.” Here, 10 quotes to an inspire a wholehearted yes to the present moment, yes to life, yes to love!

“Always say ‘yes’ to the present moment… Surrender to what is. Say ‘yes’ to life – and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

“I imagine that yes is the only living thing.” ~ E.E. Cummings

“There are an infinite number of reasons to say no. Instead try to focus on one good reason to say yes.” ~ Jarod Kintz

“In the space between yes and no, there is a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; it’s the legroom for the lies you will tell yourself in the future.” ~ Jodi Picoult

“Shrug off the no’s – they are temporary. This is your world. In your world there is only yes.” ~ Jolene Stockman

“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!” ~ Richard Branson

“When spring knocks at your door, regardless of the time of year or season of our lives, run, do not walk to that door, throw it open with wild abandon, and say, “Yes! Yes, come in! Do me, and do me big.” ~ Jeffrey R. Anderson

“Yes is like credit, No is like cash.” ~ C.J. Langenhoven

“Yes, the mind likes to think, but until it learns to listen to others, to the body, the heart and all the sense, it also uses itself to block everything it does not like to do or to acknowledge.” ~ Richard Rohr

“When you are discontent, you always want more, more, more. Your desire can never be satisfied. But when you practice contentment, you can say to yourself, ‘Oh yes – I already have everything that I really need.’ “~ Dalai Lama

KICK in the TUSH TUESDAY: Fly High, Break Free, Be Happy

"Your gain is my pain. Call me."  ~  Janice Taylor,  Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“Your gain is my pain. Call me.” ~ Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“When once you have tasted flight you will always walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward: for there you have been and there you will always be.” – Henry Van Dyke

Happy Kick Tush Tuesday! Recently, I started referring to myself as an Anti-Gravity Coach.

In response to my new title, people ask, “What do you mean you’re an anti-gravity coach?” I’d like to take this opportunity to explore and explain!

When you really think about it, when I really think about it, my approach as a Life and Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert is focused on letting go of that which weighs you down, followed by taking flight.

Taking off, taking flight is about letting go of gravity; that which pulls us down, that which weighs us down. It is about rising above our belief systems, our way of thinking and our daily habits.

Have you heard the expression, “You can’t see the forest from the trees?” Flying high allows us to see things that we cannot see when we are on the ground, in the middle of our mental “mine-field.”

Flying high allows us to create enough space to objectively look at our lives and experience new perspectives.

You cannot break a habit. You can only create new ones. By flying high above our lives, by breaking free of gravity, we break free (while in flight) of the habits that weigh us down.

When we break free of the habits that weigh us down, we have an opportunity to experience, see, feel and imagine our “want power” muscle in its full glory. We are able to imagine, to envision going beyond the boundaries of linear living.

We are able to break the bonds of our earthly identities and remember our true identities.

When we are in touch with and celebrate our authentic self, as opposed to the food-obsessed person, the unorganized person, the victim, and/or the “fat” person, then we are able to fly.

Feel free to imagine what it might feel like to “let go” of all that weighs you down. Feel free to ask more questions!

Experience Anti-Gravity Coaching. Come fly with me!

1.  Do not watch the news, violent movies or empty calorie television shows, especially before bedtime.

3.  Do not focus on your problems. Shift your energy to helping someone else.

4.  Do not worry. There’s no point to it, and worrying is a real buzz kill.

5.  Do read inspiration and motivational books, magazines. Keep your mind awash in positivity.
