jam. oooooh jam

man the weekend went by freakishly fast! yesterday morning i missed my saturday morning workout for the second straight saturday, uuuuugh. but with good reason!  i attended my first AKA chapter retreat with my Sorors and had a seriously fun time.


posing with Soror Peach on the left, and Crystal on the right.

i enjoyed fellowshipping with these women, learning more about them, and more about myself.


fun, memorable times were had,


and plenty of cake was eaten :) .

i found myself looking back on some of my older posts recently and they were so dang long i lost interest myself :shock: . so i'm gonna try somethin' a little different in an effort to get more posts out during the week. cool? cool.


i have so many dang recipes on Instagram (fitfoodiele)  i need to add to the fit recipes section it's not even funny.  so here's  the homemade strawberry chia jam by request and as promised!

homemade strawberry chia jam

the stuff:

  • 1 cup diced strawberries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 packets stevia

do this:

add your chopped strawberries to a small sauce pan on medium heat; add stevia and mash together with your fork.  as SOON as it starts to simmer, turn the heat off and add the chia seeds; incorporate real good.  you can also do this in the microwave.  just nuke the strawberries for 30 seconds, stir in the stevia,  nuke for 30 more seconds, take out, and add the chia seeds and mash it all up with a fork.  if you have an emulsion blender, use it!  if not, do i like i did and throw it all in your bullet, food processor, or blender and give it a few quick whirls until smooth.  put it in the fridge so the chia seeds can do their thing and thicken.

for 2 tbsp:
