Chia seed jellyLet’s talk about chia seeds. Some of you might be hesitant to try this foreign ingredient, but after this recipe you’ll be ready to make it a staple in your pantry. Chia seeds contain 5 grams of omega-3 fatty acids, which play an important role in energy production and inflammation reduction.  Studies have shown that they help to lower cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure.  They also provide a healthy dose of fiber, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, calcium, and iron.  You can typically find them in a bag sold in your local grocery store. The berries in this recipe are also an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C, folate, and potassium and phenomenal source of antioxidants. Jam often gets a bad rap, but this healthy version will keep you on track!

Chia seed jellyFor this recipe, you’ll need some blueberries, strawberries, chia seeds, and stevia if you want to add a bit of sweetness. Take all of the ingredients and blend them all together in a blender. It’s as easy as that! This puppy is ready to serve.

Spread the jam on some whole wheat toast, whole wheat pancakes, or even some crackers as a snack.  Keep it on hand in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.  Our recommended serving size is 2 tablespoons.  Feel free to try this with some other type of berries if you’re looking to switch it up.  How easy does this sound?
