Hot Granola Breakfast

Hot Granola Breakfast

"I realize the importance of food for fuel in our bodies and expecting optimal performance from our bodies, we must fuel ourselves optimally. When I am in the backcountry I like to travel extremely light.  I like pushing my body to the limit and expect the same from my equipment, and this Jetboil stove of mine seems to have passed the test. This is a great way to start the day and gives you the desired energy to stick with you for a couple of hours." - Courtesy of Neil Bangs via
