Good Eats: 2 Busy Girl Breakfast

Posted on Updated on

Busy bloggers like us at Team LC are constantly on the go. Between writing endless articles, staging photo shoots, and crafting the latest DIYs, there is hardly time to sit down for a relaxing meal during the week (thank goodness for the weekends). When I’m rushing out the door in the morning, the last thing I want to do is slave over a time-intensive meal. That said, I’ve recently been researching a few ways to make a delicious and quick breakfast for on-the-go girls like myself…   My belief is that if you’re going to eat breakfast on the move, at least whip up one that’s healthy—and tasty too! Today I’ll be sharing 3 of my favorite tried-and-true busy girl breakfasts. Check out the recipes below and let me know which one you’re going to try…

1. Blend a green smoothie. Some mornings in the LC offices, there are homemade smoothies sitting atop nearly all of our blogger’s desks. Which just goes to show that busy girls love starting the day on a healthy note—with some nutrient-rich, blended goodness. We love this revitalizing kale smoothie recipe. But my newest favorite smoothie recipes combine fruits, veggies, a light protein powder, flax seeds, and dried coconut flakes. Try it out below! Just pour it in a to-go cup, add a straw and sip away.   Good Eats: 3 Busy Girl Breakfasts Ingredients   1 cup raw spinach 1 cup frozen peaches 1 cup frozen pineapples 1 teaspoon organic flax seed 1 teaspoon dried coconut flakes 1 cup almond milk 1 teaspoon of your favorite protein powder ½ banana Instructions:   Add spinach, peaches, banana, and pineapples to your blender.

This popular favorite has always held a special place in our hearts. Chilled overnight oatmeal can be easily transported from the kitchen to the car to the office. Plus, you can customize your oats with your favorite fruit toppings too. Click here to check out Lauren’s overnight oats.
