Most quick breakfast foods are nothing more than grains and dairy — two things that will weigh you down rather than give you the boost of energy you need. The solution? Make enough Caveman granola to last you all week, and simply grab it out of the fridge, douse it in coconut milk and sprinkle on some fresh fruit. Now that’s a quick, energy-boosting breakfast that will get your day started right.
