Boiled egg nutrition

Boiling your eggs is one of the healthiest ways to prepare them, because you don’t need anything more than hot water and a saucepan when you’re cooking. As there are no oils or fats involved in boiling an egg you can save calories and enjoy a simple, healthy snack in just a few minutes.

Of course, it’s what you eat with your boiled egg that will change the overall nutritional content – for instance, if you were to have them as part of a scotch egg this would result in a lot more calories than if they were simply sliced over a salad.
