Celebrate Dr. Seuss this month with a Healthy Green Eggs and Ham Recipe

Healthy Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss

Green Eggs & Ham to Celebrate Dr. Seuss and his Birthday Month

It’s time to experiment!

Grab the picture book, Green Eggs & Ham by Dr. Seuss, and learn more about our friend Sam I Am. When you are finished, jump into the kitchen to check out my healthy version of Green Eggs and Ham to see if it’s a thumb’s up find just like Sam.

This recipe is a great way to build memories together and try something new all while squeezing in a few extra veggies along the way.

Green Eggs & Ham by Jodie Fitz

1 cup baby leaf spinach

3 eggs, large

3 tablespoons milk

1/8 cup ham off the bone, finely diced

¼ teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon sea salt, fine crystals

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Non-stick cooking spray

Other supplies needed:

Frying pan



Place the spinach, cracked eggs, milk, onion powder, sea salt and black pepper into a blender. Blend until the spinach is fine enough that you can’t see it and the mixture has turned green, but not to much that your mixture is super frothy.

Coat a frying pan with nonstick cooking spray. Heat the pan over medium heat. Add the diced ham. Add the egg mixture & cook the eggs and ham in a scrambled egg fashion until the eggs are fully cooked; firm, not runny.
