Greek Yogurt and Grape Nut Breakfast

I used to hate when my mom would try feeding me grape nuts. They were flavorless, small and crunchy beads.  I’ve since grown a little older and started embracing a more active lifestyle. Grape nuts became a regular part of my diet. They’re high in protein, fiber, and iron. I needed something that was healthy, filling, and pretty cheap and this breakfast fits the bill.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons grape nuts

3 tablespoons thick plain greek yogurt

Brown sugar to taste (about half a teaspoon for me)

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!

It’s very simple and cost effective.  Where I live a box of grape nuts (not on sale)  is about 7 dollars for 20.5 oz. Plain Greek yogurt runs 7 dollars for two 32 oz containers.  The simplified math comes out to around 45 cents for breakfast!

I love Starbuck’s scones, but when it comes to saving money and getting great nutrition I’d pick this breakfast any day!
