The $0.28 Breakfast

I’ve been hooked on a certain breakfast as of late. It’s around 200 calories, and excluding the cost for heat or water, costs under $0.30 per tummy-satisfying serving.

I purchased store-brand oatmeal, raisins, and peanuts, as well as sugar substitute from the dollar store. From these four main ingredients I’ve been able to whip up a cup of oatmeal that is wallet-friendly.

I usually precede each meal with a couple glasses of water, and often a few bites of fruit. The health benefits of my oatmeal delight aren’t through the roof, but it’s a sensible, quick and affordable way to start the day. Let cool for a few minutes, or bring to work; the oatmeal usually keeps warm in a well-sealed container for about an hour.

  1. Comfort food, yum!

  2. It’s so good to see you updating the blog again! This looks awesome – we just bought a huge container of oatmeal…Love the idea of adding peanuts!
    I’ll have to try it soon.

  3. I love using using honey, bananas, and almonds.. little more expensive, but very tasty.
