Frugal Living--Cost & Calories Back on track this a.m.
January 24, 2023 12:36pm CST
Knowing that I need to eat more healthily, I needed to get back on track this morning. Actually, I did eat some raw vegetables last night, and that seemed to help a little bit with the feeling of sugar excess I felt. One of the things that I am trying to do is eat healthy throughout the day. I've never quite understood it when others say that they have certain breakfast foods or lunch foods. One thing I like about living alone is that I don't have to live by somebody else's definition of those terms. If I feel like eating a tuna fish sandwich as my breakfast, then I do. If I want a bowl of oatmeal for lunch or dinner, then I do. I try to listen to what my body is craving for nutrients. This morning's breakfast was hardy, healthy, and was not much money. So, it checked the box for me in many categories. One egg, 72 cal, $0.19 One corn tortilla, 55 cal, $0.05 One banana, 105 cal, $0.19 1 1/2 cup of broccoli, 40 cal, $0.00 (given to me) 1 tsp olive oil, 40 cal, $0.07 Two tbsp fire roasted tomato salsa, 10 cal, $0.14 One mug of black coffee, 2 cal, $0.25 Total calories--324 cal; my cost--$0.89 This should hold me over for a few hours. It certainly doesn't make me feel sluggish like the sugar does. Photo is my own.

All those food items look healthy. I also eat whatever my system orders. I can eat cornflakes in the mornings or in afternoons if that´s what my system is craving for. I also eat little of this, little of that throughout the day. Living frugal is one way of moderating one´s eating habits
Certain foods at certain times of the day never made much sense to me, either. I have had oatmeal for dinner many times, or leftovers for breakfast. Today, I had a salad for breakfast. I woke up from my short sleep wanting salad, and I had all the ingredients, so I threw one together. Sometimes, I eat soup for breakfast as well.
