I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving with your family and friends! We had my in-laws over and had all the traditional Thanksgiving foods our family loves!
Now that Thanksgiving is over….and I know the Holidays are coming soon, it’s time to start thinking about eating healthier so we can indulge again in a few weeks! Today, I’m bringing you a simple recipe for Hard-Boiled Eggs you can make in your Instant Pot. These make great snacks to have when the kids tell you they’re hungry (5 minutes after dinner) or to put in your lunch bag for a quick, healthy lunch, or to make some quick egg salad sandwiches. The possibilities are endless!
