Low-Carb Green Eggs and Ham

Low-Carb Green Eggs and Ham Frittata

Green Eggs and Ham is one of my favourite bed time stories. I even read it to my daughter sometimes. 

So there’s this dude called Sam trying to convince this other dude called Joe to  eat this dish called ‘Green Eggs and Ham’. Joe refuses to eat them on every page of the book until Sam promises him that he will leave him alone if he just tries them. It turns out Joe has never tried them before, and when he tastes them, he actually likes them. A lot. 

I think it’s a great story for kids, but probably better for grown-ups because if you just try stuff, even if you think it will suck, maybe it won’t suck and who knows, you’ll get more joy out of life.

In our second book Super Food for Super Children, we named this spinach and ham frittata recipe after ‘Green Eggs and Ham’.

Here I am demonstrating how I make Green Eggs and Ham in two ways as part of the Low-Carb Meal Plan of the Week – Clean and Green!
