It is believed that you should not save on breakfast because it is the most important meal of the day. However, if you have a problem with money, you have to deny yourself something, whether you want to or not.

At the same time, GOBankingRates says you don't have to go hungry in the morning. Just review the list of your grocery expenses and remove unprofitable items from it.

In particular, Laurie Tenedy, a nutritionist from the United States and head of Nutrition Renewed, says that "in general, portioned, ready-to-eat, everyday products from cafes and grocery stores are always more expensive." Accordingly, the expert believes that you can avoid some of them without harming yourself.

In his opinion, these are primarily frozen sandwiches with egg, cheese, and sausage. Their "normal" cost is about $2.25 each, but in a grocery store or local coffee shop, they can cost you $7-12.

Next, Tandy believes that you should also give up ready-made protein shakes.

A complex breakfast in a jar or bottle looks attractive, but the problem is that it is too expensive - each such cocktail costs from $2.50 to $3.50. This also includes fresh juices and smoothies, as their price is $3-4 per 12-ounce (340 g) serving. For that money, the nutritionist said, you'd be better off buying fruit or yogurt.

Another unnecessary expense for breakfast, according to the expert, is ready-made coffee drinks. Tenedy said: "Recent estimates have shown that if you make coffee at home instead of buying it in a cafe, you will be able to buy a house in 10 years."

Whether it's true or not, a cup of coffee made by yourself will cost you 50 cents, while a ready-made product in a store costs about $3, and in a cafe it costs from $4 to $7.

The nutritionist believes that oatmeal is the last product that should be reconsidered. The expert assures that you can also cook them yourself. In this case, a serving will cost $1. But for ready-made cereals with added protein, he says, you will pay in the supermarket - from $6.50 to $9 per package.
