Protein is so important especially in the morning for energy and even more so after a workout for recovery! So during the weekdays, I’m on the go, smoothies are usually how I sneak it in. On the weekends, I love having eggs for breakfast and that takes care of that. Since it’s now summer and you must know by now that overnight breakfasts are the JAM – I am on a roll with the overnight bowls and decided to throw a scoop of my FAVORITE protein powder which happens to be vanilla, to have the best of both worlds. Plus, since this is a quinoa bowl… quinoa already has protein. Double the fun 🙂
More on protein powder…I’ve been using ALOHA brand, and guys, if you’ve ever tried protein powder – you know there is MUCH to be desired. The taste is usually off-putting and if it’s not initially… that aftertaste will get ya! I always find myself covering it up with a bunch of other flavors, until I found this stuff. It’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and it tastes SO GOOD. To the point that I skipped eggs this past weekend because I needed a vanilla smoothie. Yes, that’s where I’m at mentally. Anyway, I’d highly recommend checking it out if you’re in the market for protein powder, and take 20% off while you’re at it with my discount code: ALOHAMARS20. I’m already putting in my order for tin #2…
Anyway, overnight breakfasts leave more time for your morning hustle… or your morning relaxing, whichever it is for you. I literally JUST got back from an amazing trip and I’m sitting here enjoying some ‘me’ time over this delicious bowl and tidying up my notes on all the amazing places I visited. Be a morning person this summer with me 🙂
