Busy bloggers like us at Team Lauren Conrad are constantly on the go. Between writing articles, staging photo shoots, and crafting the latest DIYs, there's hardly any time to sit down for a relaxing meal during the week (shout-out to the weekend). When I’m rushing out the door in the morning, the last thing I want to do is hunker down and make a time-intensive meal.

After some research, I've found a few ways to make a delicious and quick breakfast for on-the-go girls like myself. If you're going to eat breakfast on the move, at least whip up one that's kind to your body and tasty, too! Click through to find three of my favorite tried-and-true busy-girl morning meals.

Blend A Green Smoothie
Most mornings in the LC offices, you can find homemade smoothies on nearly all of our bloggers' desks. Clearly, busy girls love starting the day on a healthy note — with some nutrient-rich, blended goodness. My newest favorite smoothie recipes combine fruits, veggies, a light protein powder, flax seeds, and dried coconut flakes. Pour into a to-go cup, add a straw, and sip your busy morning away.

1 cup raw spinach
1 cup frozen peaches
1 cup frozen pineapples
1 tsp organic flax seed
1 tsp dried coconut flakes
1 cup almond milk
1 tsp of your favorite protein powder
1/2 banana

1. Add spinach, peaches, banana, and pineapples to your blender.

2. Add your flax seed, almond milk, and protein powder into the mix.

3. Blend until smooth.

4. Sprinkle coconut flakes on top, and enjoy!

Prepare For The Week With Omelet Muffins
These mini-munchies are a great way to start your day. You can make this protein-packed snack on a Sunday night, refrigerate it, and reheat a mini every morning without compromising its taste. You can even customize your batch by adding different vegetarian ingredients, meat-lover mix-ins, or even add both.


Muffin pan
6 eggs (beaten, and seasoned with a pinch of salt and pepper)


Diced ham
Bell peppers
Shredded cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and generously grease the bottoms and sides of your muffin pan.

2. Beat your eggs, and add salt and pepper.

3. Fill the muffin pan (about 1/3 of each individual tin) with the different mix-ins you chose.

4. Then fill the tins with your eggs. The omelets will puff up a little when you bake them, so make sure to leave a small space at the top of each tin. Stir each mixture slightly to combine your eggs with the ingredients.

5. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until they're ready.

With these three quick-and-easy breakfasts in your arsenal, you should be good-to-go — for even the busiest weeks that may come your way!
