#ad Double tap if you agree: Balanced eating doesn't have to be all about kale and quinoa. One of my FAVORITE meals of all time is a simple PB&J sandwich using my homemade chia seed jam. For this recipe, we teamed up with @oroweatbread as part of their ‘Feed Your Body and Soul’ initiative. ⁠ ⁠ We love Oroweat because their bread is yummy, baked with simple ingredients and no artificial preservatives, colors, flavors or high fructose corn syrup. Best part: Oroweat is giving away a chance to win a free $250 gift card to our audience (to receive one (1) entry, send a text message with the keyword BREAD to short code 467467). No purchase necessary. Visit https://www.arnoldbread.com/bodysoulsweeps [arnoldbread.com] for contest rules.⁠ ⁠ Ready to make? ⁠ ⁠ Here’s what you need:⁠ ⁠ 👉🏽 16oz frozen berries (or fresh in the summer)⁠ 👉🏽 2 tbsp chia seeds⁠ 👉🏽 2 slices of Oroweat 100% Whole Wheat bread⁠ 👉🏽 2 tablespoons of natural crunchy peanut butter⁠ ⁠ Here’s what you do:⁠ ⁠ -Heat fruit in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until the fruit is heated through and begins to break down and bubble. Use a fork or potato masher to mash the fruit to your desired consistency.⁠ -Stir in the chia seeds until combined.⁠ -Reduce heat and simmer for 2-4 minutes⁠ -Remove from heat and let cool for 5-10 minutes. (The jam will thicken considerably as it cools.)⁠ -Give the jam one final good stir. Make sandwich by toasting bread and spreading one slice with peanut butter and 1 slice with jam. Transfer leftovers to a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.⁠ TIP: I love to serve this with a tall glass of unsweetened soy milk, a piece of fruit and an easy veggie (like baby carrots)⁠ ⁠ Enjoy! – ❤️ Jess⁠ ⁠ ⁠
