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.
If I wanted to do a South-Asian take on this with chard in place of kale, fresh ginger, turmeric, and cilantro all blended, what portions would you recommend? I was thinking about the following but not sure how it would taste
3 leaves chard
1 clove garlic
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1/2 bunch cilantro
1/2″ turmeric, peeled
1″ ginger, peeled
1 tsp coconut oil
Place eggs, greens, herbs, spices, pepper, and salt in Vitamix. Blend on high until smooth, 15-20 seconds.
Heat oil in an 8-inch skillet over medium heat.
Pour the green egg mixture into the skillet
Cook eggs to preferred doneness
re: Green eggs: so wonderful. And if no kale in sight, I used powdered spiraling for great color!
Love it, Ruth!
I just had your green eggs, and they were delicious. I made it in my blender using one egg and some egg whites.
Thank you for an additional choice for breakfast.
Everyone of your recipes that I have made get a 100% rating. Keep up the good work.
Joan, I’m so glad you enjoyed these Green Eggs and thanks for letting me know that every one of my recipes you’ve made get a 100% rating!
Hi Elana – Do you think I could make the egg mixture and save in the fridge for subsequent days?
Lindsay, I recommend making it fresh each day :-)
I made this today, worked fine with 3 smallish kale leaves and 2 eggs. I added one small chopped shallot or small type of red onion– this was fantastic. I scrambled them with a chicken sausage and if I wasnt dieting I am sure the additional Rye bread would of been a lovely complement. Such a simple way to get more greens in the diet, cant believe I have never thought of it. Thanks so much for sharing.
Melinda, thanks for letting me know this was fantastic! We love it too :-)
Do green eggs go well with ham?
Dr. Seuss would definitely say yes!
Super ready to try some new Hamantaschen recipes. I made your current paleo variety, but subbed organic sugar free cranberries for the currants, which resulted in EVERYONE at my office (GF or not) loving them!!!
Eric, I’m so happy to hear that everyone at your office loved my Hamantaschen!
