Eggs in a Steamer Basket

Hiiiiii 😀 Happy Saturday! How’s your weekend going?

I’m home on my lunch break for a couple of minutes and wanted to say hi 🙂 I only have to work a short day since Mara is in town, so that’s very exciting. I got to see her for a little while last night, took her an eegee and she brought me the motherload of chocolate.


She definitely knows me 😀

Some eats of the day:

Smooooothie- it’s all I want for bfast lately, which always happens in the summer

2 organic plums taken to work


[I ate one in between cardio/strength and Salsa]

and my newest favorite beast.


While the tempeh bacon sizzled away to glory,


I prepped the rest of the salad with avocado, local tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil and red pepper flakes, and greens.

Side note: what the heck are these things?


Somehow they never seem to make it into my salad and somehow the container is always full of these little bitter branch things at the end 😉

1 more to go!


Zumba: the more neon, the more legit. Haha.

Dinner and shenanigans with Mara tonight- can’t wait 🙂

See ya later with a fashion post <3



Today’s tip: I’ve had hard-boiled eggs before, but have you ever had steamed eggs? I called my bro to ask him how long to boil the eggs for my salad –last time the yolk was a little undercooked- and he said that he steams them for 15 minutes. This was exciting news to me because I’m not a fan of fishing out the eggs from boiling hot water.

Just put them in the steamer basket and steamed away(covered)  for 15 minutes,


and they were PERFECT. Great cobb salad topper and also perfect for on-the-go snackage 🙂

    The Bacon bar is my fav!!!!! I never knew how perfectly dark chocolate and bacon went together until I tried it. Holy Yumballs!

    Have a great weekend!

    This looks so yummy! I am starting out on my weight loss journey with about 15lbs that I would like to loose. Do you have any recommendations as to where to look to find out what I should be eating and how much (cals)?

      that’s hard for me to say without knowing your age, fitness level, body fat % and resting metabolic ate

    That’s so funny, I’ve never heard of steamed eggs before… do they actually taste different as well?

    • Fitnessista on July 10, 2011 at 11:10 am

      nope, just like hard boiled!

  4. Liz on July 10, 2011 at 9:42 am

    I never knew you could steam eggs either! You learn something new every day!

    ohmigosh. I still have dreams about the goji bar I got in the Chicago airport. I’ll be in Vegas in 3 weeks and tracking down the store again! 🙂

  6. Lindsey on July 10, 2011 at 11:57 am

    omgosh! the goji bar is perfection. i always have one hidden in the depths of my cabinet 😉

    ya my Chinese aunt taught me about steaming the eggs in a rice cooker. it’s so convenient huh. you only need about 1 cup of water to steam it and it takes less than 10 min for me. it saves a lotta water! unless you reuse the boiling water for other stuff that is.

    Zumba can only occur with multiple shades of neon! Gina, I have been following for-e-ver. I am so happy for you and the Pilot. I just started my own bloggy in the blogworld so come by and visit whenever you get some free time……You were my inspiration to start, so thank you!

    Those chocolate bars are sooooo good. I ate my weight in chocolate when I was pregnant, and then some. Endangered Species was my fave. I ate a little at every meal. Crazy.

    I always cook my eggs in a rice cooker. It’s way more convenient, except that you can only do 6 at once. It takes 24 minutes for 6 eggs in my cooker. I hate those things in salads!

    tempeh bacon?! Is that pre-made or did you make it and How?! I am always looking for vegetarian alternatives that are still healthy and low in sodium!

    • Fitnessista on July 11, 2011 at 11:15 am

      i made it- the link should be in the post for the how-to 🙂

    Gahh, where’s your neon pink sports bra from? LOVE! I’ve been trying to find one everywhere!

    • Fitnessista on July 11, 2011 at 10:09 pm

      thanks! it’s from lululemon- it’s the 50 rep bra, but an oldie

  13. Laura on July 14, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Just steamed some eggs…perfect! Will definitely be doing this instead of boiling from now on!

  14. Heather on August 2, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    I tried doing this – twice – and egg blasted in my hair when I squeezed to make sure that the egg was firm – what am I doing wrong? Is it 15 mins for 2 eggs only?

    • Fitnessista on August 2, 2011 at 10:22 pm

      are you sure you’re steaming them correctly??

  15. Meaghan on August 5, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    just steamed 3 eggs, perfectly! thanks for this great time!

  16. Meagan on March 11, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    I do that to eggs all the time – they don’t get wet and it’s easier than hard boiling them, but yeilds the same result!

  17. Katherine on August 13, 2013 at 12:34 am

    1. Vosges is my FAVORITE !
    2. The bitter green branch is frisée. It’s tasty with all the rich, delicious foods (bacon, egg, cheese) that discount a salad fom being healthy. Doesn’t stop me!
