St. Patrick’s Day is coming up so I thought it would be fun to make some green eggs for breakfast. Instead of using green food dye I used spinach (much more healthy) to color my eggs. Spinach is low in calories and nutrient dense, containing vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A and K, folate, potassium, iron, and magnesium. Spinach can also help decrease your risk of certain cancers and heart disease.
St. Patrick’s Day Green Eggs:
1 tablespoon skim milk
1 cup of raw spinach
1/4 cup part skim shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup diced white onion
Blend in a food processor until consistent though out. Turn burner on medium heat and lightly spray medium sauté pan. Add egg mixture when pan heats up. Scramble eggs on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until fully cooked. Divide into two portions and serve. Add some fresh fruit and a slice of whole wheat toast for a complete breakfast!
