March is traditionally a month when we think about green--spring is on the way and it's also home to St. Patrick's Day. This got me thinking of fun ways to GREEN UP the breakfast spread in my house. Then I found out that March 2nd is Dr. Seuss's birthday, well, that inspired me to round up ten outrageous ideas for your green eggs and ham breakfasts. It's time to play with our food!

Have a Green Morning
Which one will you try first? Breakfast is truly the most important meal of the day, but I often feel rushed to get out of the door to get to work, school and so on. I've tried to give you options that are super speedy and others that are for mornings when you have a bit more time.
The weekends are our time to slow down and take in the moments of family time where we usually enjoy long and delicious breakfasts. So whether you whip these up on March 2nd, March 17th or on a weekend, have fun playing with your food.
