berry oats

I would eat this every morning if I had the time and the $$ 😩😩  Oats cooked with mixed frozen berries, topped with coconut yogurt, fresh fruit and rawnola (blended up oats, dates, desiccated coconut, cocoa powder, molasses and hemp seeds) 😋 (Frozen blueberries in oatmeal is still the best though 👌👌)

Low-key thinking of starting a you tube channel 💭  You guys could get to know the person behind the photos?? Let me know what you think :) -Zoe xx

Our blender died this morning 😵😓 but today’s still a good day. I woke up early, recorded my next video (uploaded tomorrow 😉), had this pretty berry oatmeal for breakfast, discovered an Asian grocery store down the street and purchased a few goodies there, and now we’re both full from lunch. 😋👌 AND my new camera will be here today. 🙌🙌 I’m in the process of downsizing my camera equipment (basically trading two cameras for one) so I’m excited to try it out! Also my order of PB2 powdered peanut butter arrives today. Yay! So expect lots of peanut butter swirls on my oatmeal in the next few days. 😜 Hope you’re having a good day as well! 🤗

Oh man where do I even start.
Well first of all, grapes/raspberries are one of the most expensive fruit in the produce section. I don’t even buy them unless they’re on sale. You gotta go for things like bananas, frozen berries, and check to see what fruits are in season. Maybe pineapple wasn’t in season. Check online to see which fruits and veggies will be the least expensive.
Buy veggies and fruits NOT in a package. If you pick them out of the pile yourself and use your own bag they are less expensive.
Don’t get soda. The credibility of this post being “healthy food” was immediately shot down when I saw a friggin Sprite. Soda is not healthy. Soda is not cheap. Soda is a privilege. Soda is a once in a while special occasion.
And the nuts, you can get a box of oats for less than a dollar.
Considering none of what’s pictures above can make an actual meal, I gave suggestions of what can. Like mentioned, the bananas, frozen berries, and oats can make you awesome oatmeal all week for under $10.
If you want lunch and dinner, consider canned beans, tofu, potatoes, rice, frozen veggies, and kale (not from a package). You can make a good combination of stuff for, oh look, around $15.

Eating healthy doesn’t mean buying the most expensive thing in the store. You have to walk around and see what is best for your wallet, or google tips beforehand because yeah it’s easy to make dumb decisions. The person in this post obviously doesn’t grocery shop often. I grocery shop every other week, I NEVER break the bank and I always get a lot of stuff. You wanna buy junk food and McDonald’s and give your body unnecessary problems instead of eating healthy because you’re so fixated on the lie that you can’t afford it? Whatever. But don’t go around spreading this false rhetoric, because IT IS possible to eat healthy on a budget and you’re just hurting everyone around you by trying convincing them they can’t.

This may sound like a weird way to have porridge, but lately I’ve been cooking my oats in water instead of milk and then serving it with a few tablespoons of plain Greek-style yoghurt stirred into it. And it’s so nice and creamy. :p This time I had it with strawberries, blueberries and a drizzle of honey.
