I know. I love the big cooked breakfast too. But here’s a way to save some dough… for only 10-cents per serving, you could enjoy a healthy and inexpensive breakfast (or any meal) with a cracked grain cereal mix. Here’s how…
9 Grain Cracked Cereal Mix
You may be affected by hard times, or you are simply looking for ways to be more frugal with your food budget while searching for ways to squeeze a bit more out of your budget.
With rising food prices, even small changes in spending habits can add up to big savings over time. This particular cracked-grain cereal breakfast tip is one that you might consider. It tastes good, and it’s healthy!
9-grain cracked cereal is just that, a mixture of nine cracked grains (the kernel of the grain is literally cracked-split). There are many types, varieties, and brands available out there… One that I like is available from Honeyville (they are not an advertiser or affiliated with us). It contains Spring Wheat, Winter Wheat, Soft White Wheat, Corn Grits, Barley Grits, Steel-Cut Oats, Cracked Rye, Millet, and Flaxseed.
The most economical way to purchase this is in a 50-pound bag, which as of this post is priced at $51. As with anything, your money is stretched much further if you buy in bulk.
To calculate the cost per serving, which is 1/4 cup,
50 pounds = 800 ounces
1 cup of this mix weighs 6 ounces, so there are 133 cups in this 50-pound bag (800 / 6)
4 (servings per cup) x 133 (cups in this 50 pound bag) = 533 servings per 50 pound bag
$51 / 533 servings = $0.095 per serving – call it 10-cents
That’s right… just 10-cents!
Add 1/4 cup of nine-grain cracked cereal to 1 cup of water and heat slowly for about 20 minutes (or microwave for 2 minutes – let stand for a few more).
After cooking, you can add additional toppings for added flavor such as a pinch of salt, butter, sugar, or honey. My favorite is to simply add a tablespoon of honey.
Not only does it taste good, but this small quantity of grains will keep you feeling full for many hours (due to the fiber content) and entirely eliminate cravings.
One serving contains:
140 calories (add 60 for Tbsp of Honey)
10 fat calories – 1 gram
28 grams total carbohydrate
5 grams fiber
5 grams protein
This 9-grain mix is a great survival preparedness food to include in your food storage because it is easy to store, inexpensive, and has over 500 servings per 50-pound bag!

I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.
I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Don't just take my word for it... watch his short video and decide for yourself.
Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
