Hey Friends!

It’s strawberry season!

I shared this delicious stovetop strawberry lime chia seed jam recipe on my Instagram feed but thought I should post on the blog too!

This fiber rich jam is thickened with chia seeds, which provide a nice dose of low FODMAP fiber, magnesium and calcium!  It tastes fabulous on top of peanut butter toast (use a suitable bread such as a slow leavened sourdough, if following a low FODMAP diet), on top of steel cut oats or as a topping for plain yogurt too. So delicious!

I hope you are having a great week!
