Raw Chia Seed Jam – and it’s benefits!

3 Ingredients

Frozen organic fruit, raw (unpasteurized) honey, and organic chia seeds!

It really can’t be any simpler to create this delicious – as well as nutritious – fresh jam. NO cooking involved. NO ADDED SUGAR. NO pectin. NO sterilization of jars or hot water canning baths!

There’s really no measuring to be done. Just use as much fruit as you can use within a few days (5 days max, otherwise the taste begins to dwindle and you may see mould growth).

Allow the fruit to thaw at room temperature — or place in a sauce pan over low heat until the fruit is thawed.
ADD honey to taste — depending how sweet or tart that you like your fruit!
ADD chia seeds (2 tablespoons or more, depending on your batch size).

Stir together and allow it to set in your refrigerator. Add more chia seeds until you achieve a jam (or jelly-like) consistency……And enjoy!

Tastes amazing when combined with coconut yogurt and my DIY Homemade Granola Recipe!

Now let’s get to the benefits!

Berries are high in antioxidants. Specific berries offer specific healing properties.

Blackberries: help reduce the growth of thyroid nodules while they fortify and strengthen thyroid tissue.

Raspberries: Are rich in antioxidants that specifically target the removal of EBV (Epstein Barr Virus) from the bloodstream, and are great for detoxifying your entire body.
Raspberries also remove impurities from the intestinal tract by a liver burdened by viral waste matter.

Wild Blueberries:
1) Help restore the central nervous system.
2) Flush EBV neurotoxins out of the liver.
3) Contains exceptionally powerful antioxidants that help reduce the growth of thyroid nodules and repairs thyroid tissues.
4) Can be found in the freezer section of many grocery stores.

RAW HONEY

Raw Honey (also known as unpasteurized), is naturally antiviral.
It also helps eradicate EBV with its zinc content.
Raw honey is the best replenishing fuel to feed and revitalize the thyroid with glucose and other nutrients.

Raw Honey:
1) Contains a combination of sugar, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, that the liver needs desperately.
2) Antimicrobial, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal — all packaged into one.
3) Packs a punch, giving your liver everything it needs at once, strengthening the liver’s immune system instantly.
4) Hundreds of phytochemicals from the flowers that bees once harvested for pollen intoxicate the liver, giving it the reprieve that it needs so it can fight for us another day.

CHIA SEED BENEFITS

WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?
Chia seeds come from a flowering plant in the mint family. Native to Central America, the plant was cultivated for its seeds as early as the Aztec period. It is now grown in Bolivia, Argentina, and Ecuador.

WHY EAT IT?
Digestive Health – Chia seeds are a good source of insoluble fiber, helping to speed the passage of waste material through the digestive system, preventing constipation.

RICH IN MAGNESIUM
Magnesium helps support around 300 different chemical processes in your body. This vital mineral helps muscles to relax, and keeps your heart and nervous system happy.

HEART HEALTH
Chia seeds contain essential fatty acids, which are a source of omega-3. Omega-3 fatty acids protect against heart disease.

BRAIN FOOD
Chia seeds are a great “brain food” and they are known to help improve memory, sharpen focus and concentration skills, and reduce brain fog and forgetfulness.

HOW TO EAT IT
1) AS A TOPPING – Chia seeds can be added to homemade granola or sprinkled on top of any good-quality, store bought (PREFERABLY CERTIFIED ORGANIC, low or no-sugar added) granola or muesli.
2) IN CAKES AND BAKES – Try replacing poppy seeds with chia seeds in baked goods. Lemon and chia seed muffins, or banana and chia bread, make a delicious treat.
3) CHIA PUDDING – Combine chia seeds with yogurt, milk of choice, and honey, and allow to sit overnight in the refrigerator. Eat for breakfast with nuts and fruit.

Chia seeds can be found online or at your local health food store.
