In the cool weather months, I add 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree to my oatmeal. I make my oatmeal with skim milk and add the pumpkin before cooking it in the microwave (stir well). Once it is cooked, I add my walnuts and a sliced banana. It is like having dessert for breakfast but it is really packed with what you need- Vitamin A, whole grains, calcium, potassium, omega-3, etc... A dash of cinnamon is also good in it. This is very satisfying and filling.

Try saving money by shopping at local consignment, charity-sponsored, and "super-discount" shops for clothing, used fitness equipment, kitchenware, etc. You can earn a little $ at consignment shops if you bring "gently" used items and have the shop re-sell them. However, if you bring in a winter coat in the summer, they will probably ask you to bring it back in the fall when they will start selling their winter items. You will NOT get full price, but it is extra $ !!
