Cheap as Chips Breakfast Ideas that kick-start your metabolism and get you going in the morning.
Are you ready to take notes? Alrighty then! Here are some super cheap as chips breakfast ideas that are still yummy, filling and delicious!
Not the little-flavoured packets – they cost a fortune and are full of things your body just doesn’t need – I’m talking about the big unflavoured flakes that take a while to cook on the stove. Do you know it only takes four minutes to cook two serves in the microwave? Best of all – it is so cheap.
I picked up a large box of Uncle Toby’s Traditional Oats at IGA for $4.50. I like using oats in cooking, it’s great to place them in the bottom of some pantyhose in the kids’ bath if they have a skin complaint – it’s great mixed with a bit of water as a facemask – so many uses – and so good for you! If you can get porridge on sale it can cost you as little as 13 cents per serve!!!

Get out your blender – even the kids will love this one! Put 1/2 cup of your favourite fruit in the blender (bananas, when they aren’t so expensive, are great, but you can try peaches, apricots or some frozen berries if they are cheap enough) – 1/2 cup of yogurt (plain or flavoured), a cup of skim milk, an ice cube or two – and off you go.
It’s yummy and good for you! Not just for breakfast either!
