I like green eggs and ham!
I do I like them, Sam-I-am!”
This is a line from the famous “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr Seuss.
Growing up I was read this story several times. Especially on Dr Seuss’s birthday, March 2nd, when every year we would gather in at a school assembly and read “Green Eggs and Ham.” After which we would all eat green eggs and ham. This was over 20 years ago and I still remember it fondly. Do you remember celebrating his birthday?
Looking back now I realize that the eggs were green due to artificial dyes, something that I no longer use. We have been eating clean for over 1 year now!!!
Wow, have we seen a lot of benefits from our new lifestyle.
I read this book to my own boys now, Alex and Ben are my 6 year old twins.
Luckily at my house we all love fresh eggs, kale, and leeks! We like to eat baked kale chips, especially Ben. Alex is a huge fan of leeks; he really likes Creamy Leek and Potato Soup and Pasta with Leeks, Peas, and Ham.
So what’s a clean eating mom of 2 little boys to do to celebrate Dr Seuss’s birthday?
Create a healthy green eggs and ham, of course. You can use leeks and kale instead of artificial food coloring! It only takes a few minutes, and is worth the time.
Clean Eating Green Eggs and Ham
