Why not ham?

Like I mentioned above, you can definitely add ham! However, the focus of EDBS and the Clean & Colorful Kitchen is to help readers eat more color and plant based proteins.

The green eggs breakfast sandwich is awesome because it includes a heaping handful of spinach which is high in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. To top it off we’ve also included a bit of avocado which is loaded with heart heathy fats to keep you full throughout the day along with fiber, and antioxidants.

We top this bad boy off with an egg for a boost of protein and omega-3 fats. You now have a well rounded breakfast sammy that will keep you full and focused until lunch!

Fun fact: Did you know that avocados are higher in potassium than bananas?? Who knew!
