Healthy Strawberry Jam

Healthy strawberry jam

To celebrate the release of my steamy new adult contemporary romance novel, Sweet Redemption, I created the Sweet Treat series and I’m so excited to share my healthy strawberry jam recipe. I absolutely adore jam and I have fond memories of strawberry picking with my dad and going home to make mason jar (after mason jar) of jam.

In the spirit of nostalgia, let’s learn how to make healthy strawberry jam, shall we? There’s no need for all the sugar and we might as well add some superfoods and protein while we’re at it. If you missed the first recipe in the series, check out my birthday cake protein balls that have been getting rave reviews.

We’ve been consistently meal planning this week and healthy breakfast quiche has been getting us from early morning to lunch with ease.     Continue reading “Healthy breakfast quiche”

Avocado Toast with the Easiest 4 Ingredient Guac!

I have an old soul. When I was 6, my mom used to tell people I was going on 40. This is why my friends (most of whom are older than me) find it so funny that I’m part of the dreaded and despised millennial generation. While avocado toast is tongue in cheek, I actually do love it and I promise it’s the only millennial-esque aspect to my lifestyle! Continue reading “Avocado Toast with the Easiest 4 Ingredient Guac!”
