Money Saving Tip And Simple Pumpkin Oatmeal

I am the only one on a diet in my household, my kids and husband are thin already. So it is very easy for the super low sugar/carb foods in my house to go to waste, waiting for me to use them up! So I devised a little plan to preserve large jars of food into single serving sizes that I can use easily when I need them.
I got the idea from when I made baby food for my boys when they were babies, I would cook, puree and freeze it the same way. If you have a tip to save money while on the Belly Fat Cure, I hope you will share it here!

I got the idea for Pumpkin Oatmeal from Candice's blog Cooking to Lose That Belly. Mine is super simple and nothing fancy at all, but it is really good, easy and I crave it in the mornings!

Simple Pumpkin Oatmeal:
1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1 1/2 Tbsp Pumpkin Puree (or 1 ice cube of Pumpkin Puree)
Water (depending on how dry/wet you like your oatmeal to be)

I microwave for 1:15 and check for dryness. If needed at add water, microwave for additional 1:15 minutes. Stir and add cinnamon.


  1. That's a great idea!

  2. Im all about saving money! It sounds gross or silly, but it really works! ;-)

  3. Thanks for sharing - I love it! Good tasting, simple, and saving money all at the same time. Way to go!!

  4. Just found this! Not sure what took me so long. Will be trying this real soon. My dad who is 84 years old and has diabetes eats oatmeal for his breakfast all the time. I will be sure and share this with him!

  5. Omigod! This is best trick ever! I love it
