drinking: chamomile tea
I didn't do too much cooking this week, so I was craving something fresh this morning. I recently purchased a bag of chia seeds from Trader Joes and have been throwing them in to smoothies and on top of greek yogurt. I stumbled across this amazing recipe on Pinterest (here) for a raw raspberry jam made with chia seeds and just had to try it!
This jam was very simple to throw together. First, I mashed a container of organic raspberries.
Next, I added the chia seeds and some organic white sugar. You can control how sweet you want to make your jam. I added about a tablespoon, and it's not super sweet.
And thats it! I ended up spreading it on some toast to try. It would also be excellent stirred in to some greek yogurt, added in to a smoothie, spread on a sandwich, really anything goes. I found a cute little jar to put it in too :)

Raspberry Chia Seed Jam
Time: ~10 minutes
1 container organic raspberries
1 tbsp organic white sugar
1 tbsp chia seeds
1. Mash raspberries with a fork.
2. Add sugar and chia seeds, stir.
3. Let sit for a half hour.
4. Enjoy! Store in a jar or air-tight container in the refrigerator.
I can't wait to use the rest of this jam throughout the week! If I come up with something crazy that I use it on I will tweet it out on @veggie_ology. For all of you meat eaters out there, this would be excellent on a toasted turkey or chicken sandwich!
Don't forget to pin it for later!
