Guess who got a major phone upgrade this weekend!
I swear, going from the original iPhone 5 to an iPhone 6 must be just like getting LASIK surgery. Everything is so much bigger and brighter! I was shocked and amazed as I scrolled through my Instagram feed. I can’t believe I’ve been missing out on so much detail all this time!
All joking aside…I was in need of a serious phone upgrade. My iPhone 5 lasted nearly three years but was having some technical difficulties. The home button no longer worked. Neither did the power button. I had to let my battery drain completely to get it to turn off—which probably only happened twice in the last year. 😐 Luckily airlines let you keep your phone on airplane mode these days or I’d have felt really guilty lying to all those flight attendants.
I’m also not quite used to this fancy fingerprint scanner thing. Or the 64 GBs of memory. But this phone is pretty and I heart it.
In food related news…I have a new recipe today! Hard-boiled eggs are practically a staple these days with our switch to Shakeology for breakfast. I mean, you know that I have to hit my quota of at least one egg per day. I decided to jazz a few of them up with my favorite fruit—the avocado. Does anyone else ever forget that avocado is a fruit? This recipe is basically a Paleo deviled egg with extra delicious mixed in. No mayo, no mustard, no Greek yogurt. Basic recipes like—avocado deviled eggs—are often times the best!
I’ve also got a pro-tip for you. #bonus Have you ever accidentally tried to crack a hard-boiled egg into a pan? Or worse yet, tried to crack an uncooked egg on the counter? I’m nearly certain I’ve done both these things. One of my friends showed me a trick to tell the difference, which is by spinning them on a counter too. Hard-boiled eggs spin much faster than regular eggs, because the liquid inside doesn’t move and slow it down. I, however, came up with a much more fun solution.
Just draw faces on them. 🙂 Who says food can’t be fun?
Not sure how to hard-boil an egg? Here ya go!
