Easy, fast, healthy and low calorie breakfast recipes are my JAM. I actually practice 16:8 intermittent fasting at the time of writing this and 2MAD.
Regardless of my eating plan, a hearty, healthy breakfast is essential.
Better Oats Instant Oatmeal With Flax Seeds is hands down my favorite steel-cut oats brand.
The individual instant oatmeal packets also keep this busy mama of 4 full til I eat my 2nd meal later in the day. Also – definitely research 2MAD if you have no idea what I’m talking about.

Info: What Is Stearic Acid?
“Stearic acid, also called Octadecanoic Acid, one of the most common long-chain fatty acids, found in combined form in natural animal and vegetable fats.” SOURCE
So is stearic acid safe to consume? This is something you’ll need to research and decide for yourself. I found this article that explains how stearic acid works with foods.
I highly recommend starting there in your research journey. I personally am good with this ingredient, obviously, ha!
