Nourish 101:

  • This recipe for Smashed Berry Jam is a great sugar free alternative to store bought jams that typically have a high sugar content. Too much refined sugar negatively impacts your body’s functions by disrupting blood sugar levels, impacting hormone regulation, triggering inflammation and can also lead to unwanted weight gain.
  • Berries are a low-sugar fruit that provide a good dose of vitamin C and anti-oxidants.
  • Chia Seeds are rich in fibre, protein and omegas adding to the power-packed nutritional quality of this recipe.
