Greens for breakfast

Yes, I said breakfast. Start off your day with spinach, kale or swiss chard instead of that sugary muffin or bagel. Greens are a great source of vitamins C and K, carotenes, fiber, chlorophyll, and magnesium.  Saute greens with onions and garlic, then mix them into an omelette or eat over toast. You could also fill a ramekin with greens, top with an egg, and bake. What's your favorite breakfast?

My breakfast: Curry scrambled eggs, sauteed onions and swiss chard, and yogurt cucumber-tomato salad.
