Stinky Eggs
0

8 posts in this topic

I am going away this weekend and the hotel breakfast is a quick bread filled take away kind of thing. I want to bring my own hard boiled eggs. I find that whenever I travel with cooked eggs they totally stink up my cooler. The taste is fine, just the stink I hate. Anyone have any ideas how to bring hard boiled eggs that won't stink?

We found a Lock&Lock container that's designed to hold eggs. It's shaped like an egg carton and locks down like Lock&locks do. Maybe tht would keep the smell in?

I bet the Lock & Lock would be good since it actually seals. I also thought of an appropriate sized glass jar with a screw on lid.

Or if push comes to shove, would a ZipLoc freezer bag work? I often put hard boiled eggs in it when I store them in the fridge.

Have you ever tried 2 layers of zip-type bags? When I need to store the rest of a cut onion, I place it in a zip bag, smash out the air, close the bag, and then put that whole thing down inside another bag and zip it closed. This works even with cheaper bags.

Freezer bags have always worked fine for me. Though, of course, some people (like my husband) are FAR more sensitive to the smell than others. ;)

When I have something "stinky" to store in my fridge, I will use many layers of plastic bags to seal the smell. In your case I would put eggs into two Ziploc bags, then in any plastic container and then in 4-5 plastic bags from store (Shoprite, Pathmark). This should be good enough to seal the smell.

Ones I did that with the bread that I was freezing in the freezer full of meat and kolbasy (garlic) because I didn't want to have stinky bread and it worked. My bread was perfect. So, if this worked for my bread, it can work the opposite way- for your eggs.

I researched further on the egg topic and found out that overcooked eggs are the ones that stink. If you don't overcook they are fine. I tried this and my cooler is smell free! I was worried that I'd undercooked them but they were perfect. I just ate two for breakfast and have no stink. Apparently I have been over cooking eggs for years!

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
