St. Patrick’s Day Green Eggs

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.
