Hmm.. green eggs..  sounds disgusting – tastes DELICIOUS! My little man LOVES these eggs! Here’s why I came up with this interesting recipe.

B loves scrambled eggs anyway and when he really started walking running all over the place he became a bit disinterested in eating. Unless he could carry it in his little hands and nibble on it he wasn’t having it. I mean, why would you want to sit down and eat when you can be getting into anything and everything, am I right?

This concerned me a little. He still nurses like a champ but he’s a growing and very active almost one year old. So, since I knew scrambled eggs were about the only thing he would actually sit down to eat I knew I had to pump up the nutrition somehow.

What could I put in eggs? Well, we love mushroom, spinach and cheese omelets … ah! Spinach! I could just whirl up some spinach and eggs in my blender and scramble them! Genius! 🙂 And that’s how our green eggs recipe was created.

I made these with a little cheese, a pinch of grey celtic sea salt and cooked them in yummy organic butter. B loves these. He would have eaten the entire plate – if I hadn’t been wolfing them down myself. Delish! I’ve made these several times now and he has enjoyed them every time.

P.S. This is a great recipe for picky eaters. In a way, you’re sneaking spinach into their food. If you have an older child let them help turn the eggs into “green goop” by pushing the button on the blender. Call them “Green Monster Eggs” to help little boys eat them. Read the book “Green Eggs & Ham” by Dr. Suess to get them excited about them as well. 🙂
