Scrambled eggs with a green touch…

It’s Saturday morning and I woke up early, that’s quite unusual! Well, I asked myself what I was doing this early? What happened to cuddling up some more and enjoying the coziness under the blanket? I told myself, well this morning I would like to enjoy the warmth from cooking rather than from the blanket.

My husband’s new breakfast obsession is scrambled eggs with spinach. This morning, as soon as I woke up I got the request for the same. At first I felt a little lazy, but in a while I was in full swing. I had collard greens and so I went with collard greens instead of spinach. This is quite a healthy way of making eggs, a plate of this will provide you with all the nutrients you need to kick off your day.
