Tip!

A generous sprinkle of ground cumin, curry, or paprika can add interesting flavors to the hard-boiled eggs. But don’t forget the salt and pepper!

    I always add some cucumber to the tuna salad, for a fresh flavor.

    I wonder if this plate has enough fat. Just mayo and some olive oil?

    ...Also I may suggest some breakfast with no eggs (salmon-based or else) for this day, and the day after (when you'll get two eggs at lunch from leftovers).

    What replacement should I use when boiled eggs make me gag? Really, just the smell is enough to make me sick.
