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 throughout. 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 grain toast for a complete breakfast!
