I eat a lot of non-traditional things for breakfast.

Leftovers from the night before are usually great on weekends

I also make egg cups -

6 eggs
any fillers you want (i use green pepper and onion)
scramble eggs, and add fillers
place 1/4 cup of the mixture in a muffin tin
bake at 350 until done

you can wrap them and stick them in the fridge for the week - pop in the microwave add a pice a fruit and you have a great breakfast to go!

Do you like yogurt? If you buy the store brand you can often find it pretty cheap. I get a big tub of the grocery store brand greek yogurt for $2-$3 and it lasts me anywhere from 1 week to 2 weeks!

Make muffins on Sunday and you'll be able to grab one to alternate with oatmeal all week. Just make sure they're legit muffins, not basically cupcakes. (Ie, ones with low sugar, incorporate fruit or nuts, use whole wheat flour, etc..)

I've done carrot-ginger-bran muffins, whole wheat zucchini, whole wheat lemon blueberry, and apple cinnamon oatmeal, and they're all around 200 calories (for the normal muffin size of a muffin tin, not the jumbo bakery size) and not too sweet.. perfect with a cup of tea. I happen to be a light breakfast person, so a 200 calorie breakfast is fine on most days, but if you want to up it, you could add a glass of milk and a piece of fruit, or whatever.

My usual weekday breakfast is a whole wheat English muffin, natural peanut butter and a banana sliced on top. The peanut butter can be pricy, but at a tbsp a time it lasts for a while. I usually get the muffins for $2.50 for a six pack (I stock up and freeze them when they're on sale) and the bananas come to about $1.89 for a week's worth. I know that food prices are usually a little higher in Canada, it would probably work out to even less if you're in the US.

I bet spark recipes would be a great place to look (if you have not already!) Good luck.

Money is super tight around here these days, so I'm trying to make it last as long as it can.

I'm trying to find some yummy breakfasts for myself. I usually eat cereal but that's proving costly as cereal doesn't last that long. I like oatmeal, and I eat it often, but I can't eat it everyday. So I need some ideas to fill in!


Thanks!
