But, really, how hard (and time consuming) is it to boil an egg?

Read the labels though, some of them have more carbs because of the "shelf stabilizing agents"! I bought those that had 1 carb per 8 oz.
I've never seen Blue Diamond here, just the cheeses? My Walmart always has Silk and others like Soy and Organic but lots of carbs in some. Doesn't the "milk" that expires quickly have more carbs??? I was surprised when I saw the very long expiry date on Silk products. I'm still a huge fan though. Never in my life have a found a liquid as healthful as Silk, despite that one carb per cup!! Even water, IMHO, is not as good for you as their products.
My first thought was, "Wow, this stuff will be great on cereal!!" WAIT A MINUTE..... I can't have cereal!!!

Hard boiled eggs

Soooo much easier to grab a perfectly cooked hard boiled egg that's already peeled, makes it super fast to make deviled eggs too.

We usually get them at Costco, but have also gotten them at regular grocery stores.

Enjoy

Weird how Wal-marts carry different items -- I know you are in Oh Canada, but even stores here in the USA, they vary!

In any case, I toast you (NOT WITH TOAST) every morning when I'm making my fo fo café au Almond/Coconut Blend Lait a la Caramel and say THANK you ms. bonny for making me smile every morning!!! Seriously, I do... it's that warm fuzzy you feel every morning... that would be me...

That's cool about the pre-boiled, and peeled eggs -- what do they cost? Are they worth the extra money (I'm assuming they are more expensive)...

you're more than welcome and I'm so happy you like it and OMG, I can't get over how good it is for us! I absent mindedly thought about having toast the other day and then reality hit me and I'm like "oh yeah" no toast for me! Not many things give me that warm, fuzzy feeling like a nice cup of coffee with Silk after work. I have to have my cup or two before work, then nothing but water all day so that first cup at 4pm is a blessing.
Enjoy that java, my friend!!

Not sure of the exact cost of the eggs, but at Costco you get 24 eggs for $3 something. The eggs come in 4 Pks of six. At the regular grocery stores the pks are smaller.

Oh yeah, I can't believe how good it is for us either... I would have NEVER thought to look at the "fake" milk products especially something called Almond, when as you know, almonds have a crap load of carbs (1 oz = 6 carbs)!!

I do enjoy my java way more now thanks to you!!

Wow that's pretty cheap -- that's comparable to fresh egg prices, at least here. But we DON'T have a Costco... nearest one is 400 miles away!!!

Yeah, that's crazy cheap??? Are they small eggs???
I buy "free range" chicken eggs here at Wal-mart but the
cost is $5.69 (Cdn prices too) for 18 large eggs!

If you make the shake, try the silk almond products, way LESS carbs... I thought about freezing some with the SF syrups, but ice cream is one of my "triggers" so I haven't and probably won't... but it's a thought!!
