    Thank you Simply 7 Snacks for sponsoring this post! While this was a sponsored opportunity from Simply 7 Snacks, all content and opinions expressed here are my own.

    If you’re a football fan, it’s not surprising that your Super Bowl Sunday is an all-day affair, which means your festivities likely begin within hours of waking. If that’s the case, your first meal of the day is likely on your mind– and we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day!

    That’s right, friends, here’s a nutritious and delicious recipe that gives you a reason to eat nachos for breakfast. It’s such a simple idea, but one that will appeal to just about any group of fans.

    The only thing you really need to make nachos a breakfast food is eggs, but in order to consider them a good-for-you dish, a nutritious “base” is needed. That’s why Simply7’s Kale Chips are an awesome pick. (I chose the Sea Salt variety, but Simply7 also makes Dill Pickle and Lemon & Olive Oil flavors.) They’re a tasty ridged chip (perfect for nachos), and they’re designed to pack the fresh flavor and great benefits of kale.

    And, of course, we all know kale is a wonderful way to boost the nutrients in your diet. Simply7’s Kale Chips have nearly 80% of your daily Vitamin K, so they’re definitely a high-quality snack. (The brand also makes Quinoa, Lentil, and Hummus Chips.)

    Additionally, all of Simply7’s products adhere to seven core standards that the company stands behind. Hence, the Simple7 name: Clean ingredients (nothing genetically modified), no added preservatives, 0 grams trans fats, no artificial colors or flavors, gluten-free, simple ingredients, and simply delicious. With all of these standards in place, you can feel good about eating these chips!

    Eggs on nachos? Sign me up! I haven’t tried these chips. I’ve never seen them, but I will be on the lookout for them!

    The quinoa chips sound perfect for dips. My favorite part is throwing the party- I can pass on the game. 🙂

    I would have never thought to make breakfast nachos. We are not football people (or sports people, for that matter, I know how un-American), but I do enjoy the excuse to sit in front of the tv for several hours and eat food I wouldn’t normally eat. 😀

    Definitely looks awesome. Whenever football is on we usually wind up getting pizza. Now that I’ve discovered this mac n’ cheese pizza here in Chicago I have developed a serious problem 🙂

    Wow – this looks really tasty! My fiance is a huge fan of nachos, so I don’t think I’d have to twist his arm to try these. I also love when I can sneakily “healthify” the recipe a bit! 🙂

    Oh man, this looks awesome! The grocery stores in my area don’t seem to sell anything that may appear to be “too” healthy, drawing the line at gluten-free bread and flaxseed.. (I went to ask where the quinoa was at one grocery store, and they looked at me like I had two heads… yeah.) Definitely making buffalo cauliflower though for the game!

    What an awesome idea! This would also be a fun twist on breakfast-for-dinner.
