Some fiscally responsible tips for the kitchen


I know so many people who believe that eating well is expensive, so today I'm partnering with SoFi to share some of my fiscally responsible kitchen tips!

One thing I've learned over the past few years is that it really pays to stock up on your kitchen staples at farmers markets and in bulk sections of supermarkets. I save so much money every month just by buying everything in bulk - from organic tea and coffee to dried super fruits, nuts, seeds and grains. I also hightly encourage bringing your own mason jars or recycled containers! It doesn't just reduce grocery cost, but you can also help the planet but drastically reducing plastic and wasteful packaging! Because there's nothing that annoys me more than one time use plastic packaging. 

Below is an easy sesame oatmeal pudding that I love preparing for breakfast using some of my ingredients I always buy from the bulk section! I hope you enjoy! 

In collaboration with SoFi


Base Ingredients (makes 1 serving)

1 cup oatmeal
2 tbs white sesame
1 cup nut milk (soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk, etc)
2 tbs honey


pumpkin seeds
rose petals


Combine oatmeal, white sesame, honey and nut milk and bring to a boil. Lower temperature down to a simmer, stirring continuously until you have reached your desired consistency. Transfer oatmeal into a bowl and top with desired toppings! I love using fresh fresh, seeds and nuts.
