Every January, we make a pact to eat more greens, but there are only so many dinner side dishes of steamed spinach, kale and green beans that we can stomach. That's why we love eating our greens for breakfast: we feel like we've done something good for ourselves, before the day has even started. Visit Erin- she'll create early morning dishes that are packed with greens (and are completely delicious)
