Green Eggs and Ham

“Would you, could you, in a box?  Would you, could you, with a fox?”

Dr. Seuss’ birthday is tomorrow, March 2.  Some family friends recently shared with me their tradition of eating green eggs and ham on his birthday.  What a fun and creative way to honor an author that has influenced us all, young and old alike, with his classic books.

Green eggs are easy to make.  Simply add a few drops of green food coloring to your scrambled egg mixture.

    We happened to have a small jar of kale/coconut (cooked and blended until creamy) left over from the evening before. I woke up on St.Patty’s Day and thought, “why not? Green Eggs . . .” didn’t have any ham. I mixed in a small amount of the greens in before scrambling the eggs and Voila! Vibrant green eggs for breakfast! And a good way to get the veggies in!
