A Healthy Breakfast for $1.60 per day?

I love breakfast. It's the first meal of the day and the perfect way to get things rolling smoothly. I typically eat my breakfast within the first 30 minutes of being awake, and I'm not sure if there's a good reason for this, but it's what I do. :P

For $3 you could eat this atrocity

I like light breakfasts, I can never do eggs, bacon, potatoes for breakfast, it's just too heavy for me to stomach and I much rather reserve that type of meal for lunch on the weekend. But during the week, I have a very simple breakfast that fills me up for 3 hours and costs just a hair over $1.50 per day! That's right. I eat a healthy, well rounded breakfast for about the cost of a Tim Horton's coffee.  Here's what I eat in the morning to kick things off:
  • 1 Bowl of Kashi Go-Lean Crunch Cereal topped with PC Brand Fiber Cereal
  • 1 cup of 1% milk
  • 1 cup of Tropicana Orange Juice
  • Nutritional Supplements
The cost breakdown for my breakfast, excluding my supplements, is as follows:
  • Cereal: ($6/box / 8 servings) + ($4/box / 20 servings) + ($4/gallon / 16)
  • Orange Juice: $5/3L / 12 servings
TOTAL COST: $0.75 + $0.20 + $0.25 + $0.40 =$1.60

And there you have it. A breakfast that includes tons of nutritionally relevant foods, calcium, fiber, vitamin C and so much more.  What do you eat for breakfast? Is it this healthy and does it cost less than $2?
