They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It can also be the cheapest meal, while still being super healthy and nutritious. Check out these under $1 combos to help you lose weight below.
I’m one of those people where, if I don’t have breakfast within an hour of waking up, I become very, very cranky. I’m currently doing Weight Watchers and my coach says that a good breakfast is super important — it helps you fuel yourself in the morning, whether you are trying to work out or just be a boss at work. It’s also good to keep your blood sugar stabilized.
Food Network just shared a bunch of quick and easy recipes that cost under $1 to make — insane!
The “basic” avocado toast breakfast isn’t going anywhere. Avocado has healthy fats that keep you full, and an egg has a ton of protein.
“Avocado Toast + Egg
25 cents + 18 cents + 17 cents
A slice of good, sprouted multigrain toast costs around 25 cents; a slice of avocado, 18 cents and an egg, 17 cents. That’s a super-healthy breakfast for well under a dollar (60 cents, to be precise).”
Making overnight oats with almond milk will save you time in the morning.
“Oatmeal + Milk + Raisins + Walnuts + Carrot (Optional)
3 cents + 25 cents + 3 cents + 50 cents + 10 cents (carrot)
Even with the addition of “pricey” walnuts, you can still get a super-nutritious oatmeal breakfast for 81 cents. Add cinnamon and vanilla to make this extra delicious. Throw in a grated carrot or apple for added nutrition.”
This looks colorful and delicious:
“Multigrain Toast + Ricotta + Peach Slices
25 cents + 20 cents + 50 cents
Mix up your toast topper with nonfat ricotta and fresh (or defrosted frozen) peach slices, for a total of just 95 cents.”
Frozen fruit is just as healthy as fresh fruit, and it lasts longer.
“Chia Pudding: Chia Seeds + Coconut Milk
50 cents + 35 cents
Brimming with healthy fats and fiber, trendy chia pudding can fill you up for 85 cents. Splurge on some mango for sweetness.”
Bonus: Tricia Williams, executive chef and founder of Food Matters NYC, says chia pudding can actually help with constipation.
