Am I the only one who struggles to eat enough veggies every day? I feel like even though I eat a fairly healthy diet, I am always lacking in the veggie department. I am not a fan of omelettes due to my own texture issues. Same with adding greens to smoothies.  I have even tried having a side of greens with my eggs but sometimes I the idea of salad and coffee together makes me turn a little green. Enter these green eggs.

The spinach is blended right into the eggs so it’s a uniform texture and with a dab of pesto, you get a punch of flavor.

2-3 eggs
big handful spinach
1 TB pesto
oil for scrambling eggs

1. Combine eggs, spinach, and pesto in a blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Pour into greased pan. Heat over medium to medium low heat and scramble eggs. Serve warm.

I based this recipe off a recipe from the Paleo Kids Cookbook. I think adding the pesto makes a huge difference. Omit if you are not a fan or have an allergy.

I feel like the next logical question is: Did your kids like it? The current answer is a resounding no. I thought I would be clever and buy the Green Eggs and Ham book by Dr. Seuss and my kids would then try the eggs and realize they do like green eggs. However, G instead recited the book back to me “I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them Sam I am.” And then listed all the places that she did not like green eggs. #parentingfail. I will keep trying. I may even make a rule on St. Paddy’s Day that we can only eat green food. Think it will work?

I think these green eggs are delicious. And I would eat them here AND there. I would eat them everywhere.
