My friend Josh texted me, asking if I was a fan of dipping apples in hummus. He enjoyed it, but his wife and teenager thought it was gross. I had never considered such a combination, and I told him that, and then expressed my excitement in trying it.

I have some great tips on fun ways to eat hard-boiled eggs, but first, a quick shout-out to my pal Dawn Jackson Blatner, because she inspired this post. I met Dawn at the Fitbloggin’ conference a few months ago, and she had sets of three simple tips and tricks for everything.
