Problems Getting You Down!?! Run Away!
With an on-the-go breakfast and a new mindset, that is.
I know, it sounds like bad advice, but hear me out before you put on your powdered wig. That’s still a saying, right? Nevermind. Anytime I feel overwhelmed or have some terrible issue to deal with, the most common advice is to face it head on and it’s like, why? When I face my problems head on I typically stress myself out, do it wrong and everything gets weird and screwed up, but when I just sort of ignore them and take life one step at a time, it all works out. That’s why I’ve decided to take a que sera sera, Doris Day-ian approach to my problems and just live.
Overthinking? DONE! Super stress city? I’ve moved, forward my mail. Gosh, running away from your problems is, dare I say, healthy?
Cardio! Right? Ehem…right.
Okay okay, so I’m clearly in a mood today and maybe don’t ignore all of your problems because that seems dangerous, but ditching the stress is a legit suggestion. Also, when taking my advice and literally running away from problems and living your best life, you need a breakfast that will run right along with you.
Omelette Roll On-The-Go
A deliciously portable cheese-filled, veggie packed egg wrap with spinach built right in. If you had to choose one breakfast to run away with, I highly recommend one with cheese and one with greens. Both are essential to human life. Other fillings that make living life possible are roasted red pepper and sauteed asparagus.
All of a sudden my problems are looking a lot less monumental and a whole lot more like opportunities for improvement (and breakfast food).
Asparagus, Mozzarella & Roasted Red Pepper Stuffed Omelette
It all begins with a beautiful bounty of Asparagus.
If you want to read about how I forage for asparagus, check out this cheesy post, too.
Breaking bread isn’t really my thing but breaking asparagus is something I can get behind.
Small stalks are best to make this omelette roll.
Season it. Sautee it. Set it aside.
Time to make the egg wrap.
I highly recommend a copper pan like this.
Nothing ever sticks to it and you don’t have to use a drop of oil if you don’t want to.
Also, you can see the roasted red pepper peeking out.
It’s the kind from a jar, sliced into two hunks to span the egg pan.
Nestle all of your fillings in your egg so it doesn’t all spill out whilst you are on the run.
How cute are these lil asparagus heads?
Just poking out, ready to be devoured.

- 8-10 Spears Asparagus
- 1 tsp Avocado Oil
- ½ cup Spinach
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 tbsp Avocado Oil, or olive oil
- 1 Mozzarella Cheese Stick, sub hunk mozzarella if you must
- ½ Roasted Red Pepper, jarred is fine
- 1 tsp Garlic Herb Seasoning
- Salt to taste
- Saute the asparagus spears in 1 tsp of oil and season with garlic herb seasoning. Set aside.
- Beat the egg and 1 tbsp oil until the mixture is frothy and smooth. Layer the spinach leaves in a large skillet and pour in the egg mixture, making sure the egg covers the entire pan. Cook on medium until the egg is set.
- Layer the asparagus, cheese stick, and pepper at the end of your omelette. Using a spatula, fold the egg over the filling and begin to roll. Serve hot or make multiples and wrap in parchment. Store in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
Who’s ready to rock and omelette roll this week out, stress free?!
