Breakfast Recipes with Kale, Swiss Chard, or Spinach!

Kale is one of those "superfood" vegetables that is surprisingly easy to incorporate into existing dishes. Even with its strong taste, kale can blend well with a variety of flavors and textures. Try out these 4 awesome breakfast smoothies with kale as a main ingredient, or jump down to the fifth recipe for a hearty kale omelette!

Swiss chard and spinach can be substituted into any of these recipes. Just make sure to remove any stringy stems and wash the leaves well prior to use. Eating a little dirt never hurt anyone, but we can try to avoid it for the sake of a tastier meal!
