Green eggs and blue yams.
That’s what you’ll find at the Food Network’s Green Eggs and Ham campaign.
According to Food Network, the ad campaign will run from January to April.
While the campaign is a great idea, it may not be the only way to give a vegan breakfast option a shot.
“In an ideal world, vegan breakfast foods would be served in a bowl, and you would have a plate of them, and a glass of milk, and an egg,” says Jessica Tischler, the senior food and wellness adviser for the Food Bank of New York.
The challenge is that vegan eggs and bacon are more expensive than other eggs, which can be purchased in stores, and bacon is also generally higher in fat.
Plus, eggs don’t provide the same protein or fiber that vegan meats do.
Tischling says, “If you are looking for an inexpensive vegan breakfast, this is not it.”
“But for some people, it’s a little more affordable than the other options, so I think it’s very important to think about the price and what you are going to get,” Tischlers added.
“A bowl of green eggs can be a big budget-friendly meal if you’re looking to make it a vegan option.
I think this is a really good thing to do for the vegan community.”
