I always look forward to my go-to breakfast, a tofu scramble loaded with veggies, cashew cheese, a drizzle of hot sauce and a slice of toast, but there’s something about Sunday mornings that makes me crave sweet indulgences. This weekend, I decided to try to whip up strawberry chia seed jam. I can’t believe I haven’t tried it in the past, it was so quick and easy and tastes absolutely delicious! It was amazing on sprouted grain toast with Earth Balance butter, but I can’t wait to try out thumbprint cookies for Christmas using the fresh jam! The fact that it’s guilt-free makes is an added bonus!
1 Bag Organic Strawberries, frozen
Agave Nectar (I use Organic Agave Five, only 5 calories!)
Place a bag of frozen organic strawberries into a pot and mash with a potato masher as they begin to cook. Once cooked through and mashed, add agave nectar to taste. Next add a generous amount of chia seeds until a thick consistency is reached. Transfer to a glass jar or bowl and let cool. Once cooled, seal the chia seed jam and place in the fridge to let flavors marry, for best taste!
I’ve purchased countless makeup brush cleaners from my favorite beauty stores and brands only to find that nothing was actually removing all of the residue. I came across a Pinterest recipe (& tweaked), and just had to share again because it’s still blowing my mind.
1 Cup Hot Water
2 T Dish Soap
2 T Distilled White Vinegar
Just swirl brush around in the cup with mixed ingredients. Rinse with hot, then cold water, pat dry excess water & let dry brush side up in a cup.
My makeup brushes look brand new in seconds, tell me you don’t love it!
