Oatmeal is one of the top Super Foods and something you should eat multiple times during the weak.And it’s cheap! Quaker Oats is usually $3.15 a carton. I got it BOGO at Publix. I also had a coupon for $1 off when you buy two, bringing the cost down to 8¢ per 1/2 cup serving. Avoid the instant packets with fruit, brown sugar or cinnamon — the #2 listed ingredient is sugar.
For some reason, Kroger gave me a $2 coupon on Ocean Spray juice (I had just bought a few bottles), bringing the cost of an on-sale bottle down from $2.49 to .49¢, or 6¢ for an 8 oz. glass.
