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.
