Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as the saying goes. I have no problem with this considering breakfast might just be my favorite meal, plus eating a nutritious meal in the morning keeps me fuller (and therefore much less hangry) throughout the day. I know people get bored with it, especially since it might seem that there are few options for a busy morning when you’re pressed for time: eggs, yogurt, cereal, toast.
Here’s a week (probably two) in breakfasts for me- using minimal, healthy ingredients and varying in time commitment. The great part about these recipes is that you probably already have all of the ingredients!
What you’ll need for the week (and prices if you’re buying everything new):
- Oatmeal- $2.00
- Yogurt (preferably Greek)- $3.79
- Banana- $1.71
- Milk (I prefer almond, but any will do! Just be sure to check the required amount equivalent)- $3.50
- Peanut or Almond butter- $4.00
- Fruit of your choice
- Granola (College Hack: use a healthy cereal for the same crunch but half the price)- $3.00
- Eggs- $2.69
You’ll probably already have:
-Cinnamon - $1.00
-Chia seeds- $4.00
So you can get at least two weeks worth of healthy food for $30 and add variety to your breakfast schedule. All of these ingredients are easily used in other recipes for lunch and dinner as well! For the full recipes, check below!
