Two Tips for Tuesday/Cookies for Breakfast!

Here are two tips that are both time and cost effective as well as physically and financially healthy!

Two Tips:

1. Customized Grocery Shopping.

We shop once a week for exactly what we need and with few exceptions, our grocery bill is always withing $2 or $3 of the same amount every week. And every week we test drive at least 3 new recipes; so no, we are not always purchasing the same items.

Our list makes its home on the side of the refrigerator and as an item is finished it gets added to the list as do the necessary items for the coming weeks recipes.

2. Healthy, Quick and Sweet!

Would you like a quick and healthy breakfast you can just grab and run! Look no further!

We make these on Friday for the week to come. They can also be frozen ahead. (Ideal for a road trip)

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)
+ Whey Protein 3 scoops (60 grams) (good for 3dz.)

*Be sure to watch your first batch - it may not take quite as long as usual.

There are only 24 hrs. in every day and if you are like me, you are always looking for ways to maximize every moment. So, please share your tips!
Leave your link and tip in the comment section, or comment on your own blog and let me know and I will reference your tip/blog.

We could be twins with the grocery list. I'm a little more OCD as mine is done by aisles in the store. And I can't wait to try the oatmeal cookies.
