When the boys were little we had Green Eggs for breakfast almost every day.
I love this dish because it’s great to start the day with a nice dose of green vegetables, and the boys adored how bright these eggs are.
Green Eggs are also amazing because they’re a fun food that doesn’t contain any dye, but they still have a bright green color!
Breakfast Ideas That Are Easy
My favorite way to dress up these green eggs is with gluten free bread and avocado.
I toast a piece of my Recipe for Bread with Almond Flour, then, by adding half a sliced avocado to the plate I balance my protein with blood sugar-stabilizing fat. This superfood combination will start your day off right.

The Green Eggs and Ham Story
Did you grow up loving Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss? I did, and in turn, I read this classic to the boys.
Like these breakfasts, it’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day and all year round!
This post is an oldie but goodie from the archives, I first shared this Green Eggs recipe in 2011.
Laura Ruby says
When I put Kale in a smoothie – raw – it never bothers my stomach. Also in the Blendtec green soup which never quite gets to boiling, but gets hot. Of course, we don’t all have the same stomachs.
Amy Hajec says
I’ve done this for years as a way to sneak more greens in. I use 1/2 lb organic spinach, and 1 clove of garlic to hide the taste, and 6 eggs. My husband and I would take turns quoting “Green Eggs & Ham”, and say we make green eggs & cheese. Fun food!
Amy, totally fun food :-)
Angie Halten says
When I first saw this recipe I thought it might have had green dye in it but to my surprise and delight you used Kale…a very healthy alternative to this fun St. Patrick’s day breakfast!
Angie, no dyes used here :-)
Jenny Eliuk @ Stay on Path says
Wow, I never would have thought just adding a little kale could make them so green!
The Teenie Foodie says
Wow what a great idea! Green eggs.. i have never tried this but I will give this a go tomorrow maybe with spinach instead. Thanks so much for sharing this, I’ve been wanting a change for breakfast! I love scrambled eggs and I think ill add some chilli and garlic too…. delicious!
Teenie Foodie, you’re welcome!
Kale and eggs?? A must try :)
I will also have to remember this recipe next year on Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March 2nd… my kids cooked green eggs at school by adding food coloring… this recipe would be soooo much healthier!! :)
Cindy, so much healthier!
Raj @ Flip Cookbook says
Wow! What a fantastic idea! I’m going to try this the next time I have my color picky eaters visiting :D
Thanks Raj! We think it’s pretty fantastic too :-)
people who are sensitive to raw greens (thanks for bringing it up as i was never aware!) can easily steam/boil or cook the greens in the way they prefer and blend them with the eggs. i imagine you would wring out the excess moisture beforehand.
had to laugh…many years ago my sister made my nephews,,then in 1st and 2nd grade..green eggs and ham for breakfast. they must have shared this at school, because soon a social worker came to check on what was going on in the kitchen at their house.
Great story Jillian!
