Easy cheap protein - check out Yoplait YQ. It’s not technically yogurt, but very similar. The coconut is DELICIOUS. 15g of protein, not sour like reg/Greek yogurt, and a lot less sugar (plus no fake sugar or sweeteners). On sale for 1/ea at my store the other day. Bought a bunch.

I microwave my eggs for breakfast. Put two raw eggs in a cup, microwave for 30 sec, stir the eggs so that the clear raw eggs white cover the top, microwave for another 15 sec, check and stir, and microwave for 10 sec, etc. until the eggs are cooked. Usually my eggs are cooked with 1 min total cook in the microwave. The egg is like a poached egg and the yolk is soft and gelatinous rather than green and dry. Add some sea salt and black pepper...voila... 170 cal high protein breakfast! Or you can keep stirring both white and yolks to make scrambled eggs. Experiment with the work microwave to get a sense of the power levels and how long you need to cook your eggs in increments. I did have 1 or 2 explosions when I first started my job.

I used to do this, but I work break the yolk, zap for a bit, flip, and zap some more. Glassware has a container about the same size as an english muffin. Toast while eggs are cooking, add a little cheese and voila, awesome breakfast

Can confirm. Was on a business trip once with some dude who got a hard boiled egg from the buffet and stuck it in the microwave. Soon as he put his fork to it it exploded all over him. Once we determined he wasn’t scalded we laughed and laughed.

We eat a lot of eggs with three kids. We do scrambled, hard boiled, omelettes, we do the pan, we do microwave, we make egg muffins, etc. FYI....they ALL stink. You are cooking eggs. However, I would never, ever, re-heat a hard-boiled egg. 🤮 For the of god don’t do that it in an office.

I’ve never had a hot hard boiled egg. Soft boiled, yes only warm. But it’s rather difficult for me to imagine them warm. Especially reheated, but you cant de-shell them when their hot...Yeah, hard boiled eggs are not meant to eat warm.

I used to eat hard boiled eggs for breakfast, just leave them out for 20 minutes and hold them in your hands for a couple minutes before deshelling and they’re good to go. I wouldn’t put them in the microwave

I usually de shell and throw them into my lunch container so they get heated up with everything else. I guess I’ll just leave them out. Thanks Bowl!

I have an exit interview coming up. Ive never experienced as many microaggressions as I have in this place, and it not only made me uncomfortable, but messed with myself worth in a bad way which took a toll on my mental health. Should I mention the specific incidents that happened on the exit interview but not name names? Should I just let it go? I want them to know how shitty the culture that allows this is.

I have an international trip coming up, and the airline requires proof of a negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours. The PCR tests in NYC take 3-5 business days to return, so it looks likely that my test results won’t be ready on time. Has anyone dealt with this? (I’m flying from NYC to the UK due to a family emergency.)
