The Perfect Soft Boiled Egg


  • 1 large organic egg
  • Black pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Optional dippers: toast strips, avocado slices, etc. 

I'm on a quest for a breakfast that satiates me and carries me through the morning with energy, passion and focus. You can test out my recipes and hold your own Breakfast Experiment! 

I go back and forth on breakfast; sometimes I think a feast of eggs, bacon, vegetables and fruit is ideal and sometimes I want something simple. This is simply the best simple breakfast! It's not quite as quick as a bowl of cereal, but it is nearly as easy. And it makes me feel oh-so-chic and classy!







Set your timer for six minutes but don't start it. Fill a small but deep pan with about four inches of water. Bring it to a boil then lower the heat so that the water just simmers gently. Gently lower in the egg, and start your timer. After six minutes remove the egg and run it under cold water for 15 seconds. Place in an egg cup and slice off the top third. Season with salt and pepper. Dip away!

Serves 1. 

Right After Eating: A light breakfast makes me feel light and fast myself. I'm never as hungry as I think I am in the morning, and this left my belly (and my eye for aesthetics) satisfied.

Two Hours Later: I'm not really hungry, per se, but my stomach wants something else. I'm also a little bloated, and I know bread does that to me. I think eggs might make my stomach feel a little yucky, too.  I have to further test this theory
