Are you still in a cookie coma from the holidays? While I ate a few cookies, I also enjoyed plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. My garden is at the peak of its winter harvest which means that it is packed with green goodness.

I love winter produce because it is adds a burst of color and freshness to an otherwise cold day. Kale, citrus, beets and pomegranates are packed with nutrients and full of fresh flavors. Starting the day with a bright and colorful meal starts the day on the right track. I grab a few beautiful kale leaves from my garden and add them to my breakfast. During the week I love to start the day with a green smoothie, but on the weekends I often make a kale, egg and cheese scramble.

Simple flavors and a few fresh ingredients create a breakfast scramble that is nutritious and delicious. I love egg scrambles because they are easy and work well for dinner too. I love adding whatever fresh vegetables I have available, but freshly picked kale is one of my favorite additions to an egg scramble.

I used Kerrygold Skellig Sweet Cheddar for this scramble. I love using this cheese because it is perfect for cooking and adds a subtle hint of sweetness.
