Until I had kids in school I never realized how many holidays and special occasions could be celebrated. Aside from the standard ones like Halloween and Valentine’s Day, there’s also the 100th Day of School, President’s Day, and Football Fridays … and now Dr. Seuss Day! I decided to kick off our Dr. Seuss Day celebration with this fun green eggs and ham recipe that uses kale instead of green dye.
But whether you are a Dr. Seuss fan or not, you can still enjoy this dish for breakfast (or lunch or dinner). I promise it will taste just as good without the colorful toothpicks. Enjoy! You will also love these Classic Scrambled Eggs and this Healthy Frittata!
Dye Free Green Eggs and Ham
It wouldn’t be real food if we included food coloring in this green eggs and ham recipe! This recipe gets its green color from rich leafy greens like kale or spinach.
Eggs and kale make a surprisingly good combination, and once you’re done you can check “eating your greens for the day” off your list.
Real Food Ham Ideas
You can’t have green eggs and ham without the ham! Unfortunately, deli meats are full of added ingredients including nitrates, which are used as a preservative or added during the curing process.
To avoid this, you could swap with your own homemade baked ham, or simply enjoy the occasional serving of deli ham in true moderation (deli meat is not something we purchase regularly).
Kale and Eggs Recipe for Busy Mornings
This isn’t just a special occasion breakfast recipe! You can easily whip up these delicious green eggs with kale on busy mornings for a healthy, leafy green packed way to start the day. I always keep some fresh or frozen kale and spinach handy to throw into eggs or smoothies in the morning.
