Saw this article on WebMD about 10 healthy breakfasts that you can make $1. 5 were for fast food restaurants, but that’s not my cup of tea.
Here’s a list of some easy ones to make at home. The article included detailed price tally, nutritional info and recipes:
Mixed Berry Satisfying Instant Oatmeal Total $0.93: 1 package Quaker Take Heart Blueberry Flavor, cook as directed with 2/3 cup low fat milk instead of water. Sprinkle 1/3 cup chopped strawberries or frozen raspberries over the top.
High-Fiber Breakfast Bagel Total $1.01- whole wheat english muffin, high omega-3 eggs mixed with 2 tbs egg substitute Start with a toasted 100% whole-wheat bagel or English muffin. Cook egg covered over medium-high heat, throw on slice of reduced fat cheddar cheese
Breakfast Yogurt Parfait Total $1.05 : 3/4 cup low fat yogurt, 1/2 cup fresh fruit, 1/2 cup whole grain breakfast cereal (granola, grape-nuts etc
Tea & Toast Breakfast Total $.90 (w/cheese) or $.63 (w/peanut butter): don’t think you need a recipe for this one, just make sure you buy 100% whole wheat bread and reduced-fat cheese or natural-style peanut butter for added protein
