I try really hard to be mindful about the food that I buy, cook and eat. I'm not perfect by any means, and I have a major sweet tooth, but most of the time I try to eat healthy, home cooked meals because it's better for us and it's better for our wallets. Groceries are really expensive in Australia, and I find that breakfast staples are especially pricey. Making things from scratch is usually so much cheaper than store bought versions, and for a while now I've been hoping to replace my organic store bought yoghurt with homemade. While my mom was out here in November she gave me some pointers, and I successfully made yoghurt a couple of times but then couldn't get it right again. So I turned to the internet and found SouleMama's awesome tutorial on how she makes yoghurt. Coupled with my mother in law's yoghurt making thermos, I've been successfully making yoghurt for the last few weeks. Yahtzee!
While perusing SouleMama's tutorials, I also found a recipe for granola that looked yummy. I gave it a go last week and have been eating it for breakfast ever since. It's so yummy and much easier than I thought. Double yahtzee! So if you're wanting to save a few bucks, and make more from scratch you should definitely check out SouleMama's tutorials. Making yoghurt is seriously easy, and it feels so good to know that you've made all of your food from scratch. Do you guys have any yummy breakfast recipes to share? Or any tips for saving money at the grocery store?
Heating the milk over low heat,
then you add in your starter yoghurt,
and plop it in some sort of heating device, this thermos worked perfectly.
