Oatmeal may be one of the best foods on earth. If I don’t have oatmeal in the house, it’s like a tragedy has occurred. I mean seriously, oatmeal can be breakfast, lunch, dinner, a bath soak, and is great for the skin. My favorite way to use oatmeal is in my apple and oats breakfast pudding recipe that I get to make on occasion.
So when I ran out of oatmeal recently, it was quite a disturbing situation. Time to stock up!
Some of you may have heard of a little place called Bread Beckers, but some of you may not have. Here’s what Break Beckers looks like:
It’s okay, you’re allowed to drool a little….. Yes, those are bulk foods you are looking at, with about half of them being organic. It’s a really cool place, and it makes it easy to stock up on bulk items if you do not have a Whole Foods or Warehouse Club. I think someone has mentioned that the prices overall are cheaper at Whole Foods if your store carries some of these items in bulk. Mine, however, does not, so Bread Beckers it is for me when it comes to oatmeal in particular!
Here’s what I got:
- 5 gallons Organic Oats
- 1 new Gamma Lid (green)
- 5lb organic Black Eyed Peas
- 5lb organic Kidney Beans
- 7lb organic Popcorn
I spent a total of $137.80
The organic oats and beans were the best price for me, but I should not have gotten the popcorn because Amazon has a better price on organic popcorn. Ah well – you make a mistake in spending and you just move on and do better next time, right?
