Oatmeal is Cheap!
Sunday, August 18, 2013
I took yesterday off from blogging and tracking, though I did enter my exercise. I am taking today off from exercise to rest my body, but not from tracking. When I don't exercise, I know I have to be more "vigilant" with my caloric intake (fancy words for "food" -- ha ha!).
This week I have renewed my relationship with oatmeal. I cook it in water, and add some kind of dried fruit and have some fresh fruit as well. On Friday, this took me through to lunch on the first day back at the university (work). Today I added some dried cranberries and a very small amount of sugar and it should last me until after church (ends at lunch time). What I love about this is that it is also "cheap." Not too long ago, I was a fast food breakfast gal. Those days are long gone. Not only was it incredibly unhealthy, but at around $5 a day (or every other day even), oatmeal is WAY better for me and so much more affordable. I can get my fresh fruit for around $5 a week. Saving money and my waistline!
That's all for now! Have a great day!
