This morning I was thinking of ways to get my daughter to try spirulina without scaring her away from it forever. If you have ever tried this amazing stuff you know it smells a bit…well….fishy. It can be a but scary to kids to eat a green powder that smells like the sea but with a little but of creativity you can get them to eat just about any health food out there.
My daughter loves Dr.Seuss and she has asked me several times to make her green eggs and ham so what better way to introduce her to spirulina than with green eggs? I added a teaspoon of spirulina to 4 eggs and voila, kid friendly health food. You can make this breakfast sandwich without spirulina but if you get your hands on some you should certainly give it a try.
*makes 2 breakfast sandwiches
What you need
- Whole wheat English muffins ( or bready thing of your choice)
- 4 eggs
- a few tablespoons of milk (optional)
- butter or vegetable spread of choice, I love smart balance!
- nutritional yeast
- 1 tsp spirulina (optional, it makes the eggs green and uber healthy)
- quinoa sprouts or other sprout of choice, learn to make sprouts HERE
How to make it
- whip eggs with spirulina (optional), salt, pepper, milk (optional) and if you like super fluffy eggs add a pinch of baking powder
- cook eggs scrambled style and just before they cook completely push the eggs together to form a patty, flip once and finish cooking
- toast your bready thing of choice and spread with butter
- layer egg patty, tomato, avocado
- sprinkle avocado with nutritional yeast and salt
- top with sprouts
- eat up
