In the hustle and bustle of daily life it can be difficult to make healthy and economical meals. However, with the start of my new nursing program Monday morning I am trying to save as much as I can and eat as healthy as I can. The hardest part of working full time and going to school part time for me has been my diet. I can do really well for months and then once I slip from my day to day diet, all of hard work to be healthy seems to get pushed to the side. I am battling constant stress and I am working on getting better and healthy again. In my quest for getting healthy, I have been following some pretty amazing real food blogs and I have learned a LOT! Billy Always loves it when I make something new and is always happy to watch me in the kitchen. 🙂
Today was no different than any other Sunday for me and scroll through food blogs, however, I came across an Amazing recipe that I wanted to try! Wild Blueberry Chia Seed Jam by http://healthylivinghowto.com One look at the name of the recipe and I knew it was for ME! I love ANYTHING CHIA and to add it fruit to make a jam sent me straight to the kitchen! I always have frozen fruit in my freezer and I grabbed the first bag I saw, which was strawberries! I used the basis of the original recipe, but I added an extra 1tbsp of chia seeds and 3 extra tbsp of water to balance the jam. This recipe can be tweaked to your liking very easily.
I have to say that this recipe is extremely simple to make and the taste is unbelievable! Since I used strawberries as the fruit I did not need to add any sweetener to the jam, making the sweetness entirely from the fruit. Win-Win in my book! 🙂 I hope to get better with pictures as I blog more. I hope you try this amazing simple recipe!
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 tbsp chia seeds
4 tbsp water
sweeten to taste with stevia (sweeter fruit may not need any added sweetener)
In a small saucepan over medium heat bring fruit and water to a low boil
Smash fruit until desired consistency
Remove from stove and add chia seeds
Stir until fully mixed and seeds begin to thicken
Place in a small glass jar, add sweetener if needed

You can use any type of berries; i.e. blueberries, raspberries, blackberries or strawberries.
I favor the perception!
