For this loaded bowl I used my personal protein blend from gainful (which was customized for me after completing a questionnaire about my intended uses for protein, intolerances, etc). I used it to make a batch of homemade granola with quinoa instead of oats and it came out so yummy! Piled high on the thickest chia pudding, this bowl kept me energized and full for hours!
