Today I made this for breakfast so my kids could celebrate Dr. Seuss. No different than many households and schools who cherish this childhood favorite will be doing this week. So what’s the difference with this dish? For starter, the eggs are pasture raised eggs from a local source. Secondly, the pork is locally sourced as well from a farm that uses natural and organic practices. Thirdly, and one of my biggest areas that I hardly ever waver on is, dye free. These eggs are colored with spinach. Food dye was the first major removal from our families diet after my sons tumor. There is quite a lot of controversy over the safety food dyes have in our food and products. While they have been banned in other countries they are readily in many (and I mean many) processed foods and products. Cereals, baked goods, candy, pickles, beverages, drugs, and cosmetics are just a few things that come to mind that are loaded with dyes.
So here is Green Eggs and Ham without food dyes ?.
Green Eggs and Ham
- 8-10 pasture raised eggs
- ham pieces
- handful of spinach
- 1/2 water
- cheese (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1-2 tbs of butter or coconut oil
Warm butter or coconut oil in large skillet. I heated the ham in skillet before adding the eggs. Beat eggs to scramble. I added spinach mixture to skillet, but you could certainly add to your beaten eggs before adding them to the skillet. Place handful of spinach in blender and add water until spinach liquifies.
This should look like a green liquid when mixed thoroughly. Add to eggs and cook like any scrambled eggs. Add cheese if desired and salt and pepper to taste.
