3-INGREDIENT STRAWBERRY CHIA JAM

katelyn - April 24, 2016

That’s my jam. No really, it is and it tastes like heaven in a jar. Store bought jams and preserves are typically filled with refined sugars and other scary ingredients. The ones you have to google search because you have no earthly idea what they even are, pectin is one (used for gelling). The fiber in pectin cannot be digested because of the natural absence …

In elementary school I had a teacher who would drink apple cider vinegar every day because she said her grandmother swore by it, before the days of knowing any better I always thought it seemed a bit crazy.  I’ve been using acv for years and if it’s not a part of your daily routine you need to make it one.  If you’ve never drank this stuff straight up, truthfully? it might …
