Chia and Raspberry Jam

With this recipe, I’m going with raw chia seeds with fresh &/or frozen raspberries. This can add flavour &/or taste to a smoothie, topping on some low fat ice cream or yogurt or as a jam breakfast spread.

Two (2) tablespoons of chia seeds have almost 10 grams of fibre. Diets high in fibre is also linked to weight loss. A diet which is rich in fibre is also the simplest way to loose weight.
