Chia Seeds are one of those “popular foods” right now. Why? They are loaded with nutrients that benefit the body and the brain, are low in calories, are full of antioxidants, high in fiber, protein, and omega 3 fatty acids and can help aid in weight loss! Chia Seeds really are a super-seed! What could be better than starting your day out right with this superior seed? I can’t think of anything…so top your ezekial bread or your protein pancake with Chia Seed Strawberry Jam!
To make, clean 2 lbs fresh strawberries and place in a food processor. Pulse until the strawberries reach the desired consistency for you jam (somewhat chunky). Pour into a large mixing bowl and add the juice of 1 lemon, 3 TBSP Chia Seeds, and 6-8 TBSP of Truvia (or other no calorie sweetener). Stir to combine then pour into glass jars. Refrigerate for a few hours so Chia Seeds can go to work to thicken up the jam. Then keep one in the fridge and freeze or gift the other jars. Jam lasts up to 1 week in the refrigerator and 1 month in the freezer!
