When you’re on a paleo diet or are avoiding gluten or sugar, your breakfast options tend to be limited to some variation of poached eggs with avocado. Which, of course, is a perfectly nutritious and delicious option. But some days, you just crave a bowl of cereal — to remind you of the good old days when you were a kid and would eat your cornflakes in front of the morning cartoons.
Unfortunately, most of the traditional cereal options on the market are loaded with so much sugar you may as well eat a Mars Bar for breakfast. Plus, they tend to be rather heavy on the grains, with not much to offer in the way of nutrition. But if you venture out of your supermarket and into your local health store, you’ll find a range of delicious, paleo, gluten-free and vegan granolas that are sweetened with natural ingredients (not corn syrup) .
