How We Learned To Save Cash AND Make A Yummy Breakfast
How much money do we spend grabbing processed, on-the-go breakfasts just to save ourselves a little time in the morning?
Take the sous vide egg bites from Starbucks as an example. Spending $5 a day on Starbucks sous vide egg bites might not seem like a lot, but these small costs add up! At Dash, we decided to do some research. We discovered that making your own sous vide egg bites saves money, and is much more fun than standing in the morning Starbucks line.
These tasty, protein-packed bites help jumpstart your day and cost roughly 50 cents per egg bite. Since Starbucks charges between $4 and $5 for a two-pack, you could save $1.50 for each bite.
Think of what you could do with the extra cash! If you’re a semi-regular Starbucks customer and grab the egg bites three times a week, that’s $9 a week in savings. That’s enough money for a movie ticket every week, a tank of gas every month, or your own sous vide circulator in just a few weeks! The best part is you can make them ahead of time as part of your meal prep and have them throughout the week!
