Protein Power Bowl

I am the actual worst at updating this blog. I’ve been so busy writing for other people (a good problem to have) that I’ve neglected my own hobby. I have so much shame.

Anyway, here I am with a breakfast recipe. I’ve been eating avocado toast for the better part of a year, and I’m just plain sick of it. Don’t get me wrong – I love avocado toast. It’s one of my favorite things to eat. But I’ve been craving some variety in my breakfast routine as of late, and I think this Protein Power Bowl is a keeper.

I got the recipe from Trader Joe’s a long time ago but could never bring myself to buy hemp protein powder to make it. But I did yesterday, and now I’m officially a hippie. You don’t have to be a hippie to make this, though. You just have to have a blender.
