OMELETTE ON-THE-GO: Work Day Breakfast

I need my breakfast in the morning, for sure, or else I'm hungry and grouchy.

Since I usually don't feel like eating really early before work, my favorite breakfast these days has been an omelette that's easy to pack and good for snacking. It is loaded with fresh herbs and veggies, which help me to feel really clear and ready for my day. It is sliced into thin strips, which are great for munching whenever hunger hits in the morning.

Typically I use 3 eggs, about 1 cup of spinach, kale, or some other fast-cooking vegetables, and about 1/4 cup of fresh herbs.

What to Do:
Beat the eggs with a little salt and pepper. Throw some butter and/or oil into the pan. Add in the eggs and cook over a low heat. Lift up the edges of the omelette to allow the uncooked egg to run underneath. Cook until the top is almost dry, but still a teeny bit egg-y. Add in the veggies and herbs, and fold half of the eggs over the filling. Press down with the spatula, or a plate, or some other kind of weight that works well for you. Flip the omelette over, and cook for another minute or so. Turn the omelette out onto a cutting board. Slice the omelette into strips. Place the omelette strips into a container. Off you go!

I like to eat the omelette strips, and most of my food, with chopsticks. But you might like to use a fork, or maybe just eat 'em like finger food. However you eat 'em, enjoy 'em!
