Ok so I never was much of a pancake fan. That is until I started using Krusteaz pancake mix (just add water).
I like it so much, I bought a ten pound bag of it.
A ten pound bag of Krusteaz pancake mix, makes 270 pancakes (that's what it says on the bag).
The ten pound bag cost seven dollars and some odd cents, but I'll just say $8.
The bag of pancake mix, does not state the size of the 270 pancakes. So for cheapo sake, lets say
we make our pancakes about one third smaller, netting 365 pancakes which of course would mean,
we can eat one pancake a day, for 365 days.
That means, a 10 pound bag of Krusteaz complete pancake mix for $8 will last us one year.
Now lets see what our pancake mix has in it:
-Milk and Buttermilk
-Other stuff like niacin
As long as we have water, we can make pancakes and we can stay alive....for an entire year for $8.
Just for the record, once we open our ten pound bag of pancake mix, we can pour it in air tight jars.
That way, it will stay good and fresh while we consume it for a year.
But....we do need meat....don't we?
It's rather difficult for a dry bean to go bad. It will over time, lose it's nutrients but still eatable.
Beans are rather inexpensive. The beans cost more than pancake mix....which I find a little odd.
The good news is, there are all kinds of beans so in reality, we never need to get tired of eating beans.
There is white beans, small white beans, large white beans, red beans, pinto beans, green beans,
lentils, peas, and the list goes on and on.
If you were to eat beans every day, it might cost you about $0.25 cents per day, which is approximately
$90 per year.
Therefore, from my self study and my conclusion, you can take a $100 bill, and eat for the entire year,
and be just as healthy as the next person, if not healthier.
This has been a 'Valerie Savings Moment
PS. Splurge a little and buy some syrup.
