Treat time!

Treat time!

Have no fear, soon I will end the “Let There Be” series.

Meanwhile – here’s the wildly easy recipe – chia takes the place of pectin and adds flavor, fiber and a tiny bit of protein….I used honey instead of agave and the blubes were frozen. AND I cut the recipe in half as a test…Result? Tasty jam! Will make this again for sure. Oh and the word chia comes from the Mayan language meaning strength…yes please!

Some say that chia seeds have Omega 3 which is true but….not the same Omega 3 that is in salmon, dairy and meat. Alternative perspectives here:

Omega 3 in Chia not the same as from Salmon…http://www.mamavation.com/2013/10/youre-being-fed-bs-about-omega-3-from-chia-flax-plant-foods-what-you-can-do-about-it.html

Chia is good for you…http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/QAA365093/Chia-for-Health.html

Yes, show Chia some love AND it’s not a cure-all….http://www.nutrition.org/asn-blog/2012/03/the-real-scoop-on-chia-seeds/

That is all. Now I shall go FINNISH another pillow. See what I did there? You will find that I get funnier as the day progresses.

Have a Nothing New Day! ~Kristin
