Quick Raw Strawberry Chia Jam Recipe

  Did you know the most popular store bought jams are filled with sugar, preservatives, “natural flavours” (which can include pig intestine, because that’s natural) artificial flavours, artificial colours etc. All things that are bad for our bodies and can cause various illnesses and diseases.
