It is no secret that I have been struggling with this blog over the last few weeks. While I love blogging, I also love running, biking, hiking, cooking, and strength training. Plus I work full time (sometimes full and a half time!), and of course, I need to make time for the Bear, Thing 1 and Thing 2! Don’t get me wrong… I am not complaining. I actually have a good problem which is that I love ALL these things and I want to do them all! There just aren’t enough hours in the day. I am sure a lot of you can relate!
Over the last few weeks, I have been contemplating on how to maintain this blog while continuing all the activities that I love. This has been a tough decision but I have come to the conclusion that I am only going to blog when I have something to say. I am not going to force a topic or stress over creating a recipe on the weekends. However, my goal is to blog 2-3 times a week. Wooo… I feel like I can breath now!
With that being said, I did have time to create one small, teeny, tiny recipe. I was definitely feeling more semi-homemade, Sandra Lee style than all-out, Martha Stewart style this weekend. Plus I can’t even say I thought up this recipe! Hah… it came straight from the masterminds over at Trader Joe’s, but they charge almost $4 for only 6 ounces of egg whites.
- 3 eggs
- 2 tablespoons salsa fresca
- Place 3 eggs in a sauce pan. Add cold water to cover the eggs in the pan. Heat on high until the water just starts to boil. Remove from the heat and cover the pan. Let sit for 9 minutes.
- To cool the eggs, put them in ice water or refrigerate.
- Remove the eggshell and separate the egg whites from the cooked yolk.
- Chop the egg whites and mixed with salsa.
I figured that I can make a trunk load of egg white salad for that price! So I boiled some eggs and stole some salsa from the Bear (he is the king of chips and salsa). If you are feeling more like Martha Stewart, you can make this Salsa Fresca recipe which is amazing. Salsa Fresca Egg White Salad is great on toast, wrapped in a tortilla, or eaten with a big spoon!

How do you balance blogging, work, fitness, and life?
What’s your favorite way to eat an egg? Hard boiled, sunny-side up, or scrambled?
