If you're looking to eat breakfast on a budget but still want to fill your body with something healthful, then your pantry definitely needs to have some rolled oats, because they're cheap and they keep. This cereal grain makes a great daily breakfast, packing your body with an abundance of cholesterol-lowering goodness. They're also yummy when tossed into a freshly baked batch of Tollhouse cookies. You'll save some calories if you replace the nuts in the recipe with oats.
