Porridge oats, or oatmeal, is another great option for breakfast and for snacks. Don’t be fooled into buying pricey pre-made oat pots or oat bars, however, as these not only cost more, but they’re usually packed full of sugar as well.
You can prepare porridge oats by simply combining a cup of oats with some water and heating up in a pan or in the microwave. This will be around 150 calories, and boasts around five grams of protein and four grams of fiber. What’s even more amazing is that one porridge breakfast will cost you between $0.1 and $0.15. Instead of sugar, try a dash of salt – that’s the way the Scots do it!
