Save Money on this Healthy Breakfast Duo

One of my goals for this year is to make myself eat breakfast.  I'm not a breakfast eater.  I'm not usually hungry in the mornings.  I'll drink nearly a pot of coffee each morning while doing my morning routine.  Then by the time lunch time rolls around, I'm starving!  That leads to eating too much at lunch & making bad choices.  I decided this year I'm going to make myself take the time to eat breakfast each day.

I really like oatmeal and prefer Steel Cut Oats.  While oatmeal in general is healthy, Steel Cut Oats are lower on the Glycemic Index.  I also prefer the texture of Steel Cut Oats.  They're denser and less mushy.


The only downfall to Steel Cut Oats is that traditionally you have to cook them on the stove.  This is fine when I'm at home during the week, but I work outside the home on the weekends.  I wanted something I could grab & go with.  Better Oats [found in the hot cereal isle of Wal-Mart] makes instant microwavable Steel Cut Oats!  I was able to find them in Maple & Brown Sugar and Apples & Cinnamon.  I chose the Apples & Cinnamon.  I also wanted the brown sugar flavor in them, so I headed to the sweetener isle.  There I found Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend!  I already use Truvia® at home for a low calorie sweetener, but I didn't have the Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend.  The Brown Sugar Blend has 75% fewer calories than traditional Brown Sugar.


Right now when you use the Jingit app on your smartphone, you can get $6 cash back when you purchase a package of 10ct Better Oats Steel Cut Oats flavors and Truvia® sweetener [excludes 40ct or smaller] at Wal-Mart!


Once you've made your purchase at Wal-Mart, open the jingit app.  You will select Wal-Mart from the available stores.  When that opens you will see the Breakfast Duo option.  Choose that one!


This screen will show you the information about the deal [select the "i" for details], allow you to reserve the promo, and enter your receipt.


Grab your Wal-Mart receipt where you purchased the Better Oats and Truvia®.  The app will utilize your camera on your smartphone to scan the receipt.  That's all there is to it!  You've saved $6 and picked up a healthy breakfast option!


I write out my morning routine for the week each Sunday.  I've started including "eat breakfast" to my check list so that I don't forget!  So far I've been very successful with this.  Writing things down in your planner is a great way to implement new habits into your day to day life.


I'm really enjoying this delicious oatmeal sweetened with Truvia®.  When my oatmeal is finished in the microwave, I sprinkle it with the Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend.  The hot oatmeal will make the Truvia® dissolve into the moisture of the oatmeal.  Then you can stir it into the oatmeal and get it all mixed in.


Look at that beautiful Better Oats breakfast with the delicious Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend swirled in.  This is the perfect quick breakfast for those trying to get in the habit of eating breakfast.  It's quick, easy, and portable.  I toss a package into my purse the night before on days I work.  The package itself has a water line mark, so you use it to measure your water too!  I make it at work and eat it at my desk.

Have you tried the Jingit app?  What's your go to quick & healthy breakfast?
