We know, we know -- it's resolutions season. We're meant to be drinking cold-pressed juices for breakfast, stocking up on lean protein and eating all the leafy greens we can get into our faces. Well, we're happy to tell you that we are definitely doing one of those things... in a way.

We've always maintained that by throwing something very healthy into something rather un-healthy, you balance the two out a bit. Which means you are at least trying, which signifies your commitment to adulthood and health. And... cheese, if we're being honest. One of the best things about leafy greens like spinach, kale, collard greens and chard is that they are sturdy enough to stand up to cream, cheese, bacon and eggs like champions. Below, you'll find some of our favorite, sincerely decadent ways to get our leafy green recipes in during the resolution months.
