2 Ingredient Jam

Eat Ovulatory Phase

This is by far one of my most used recipes. I hate buying store-bought jams and jellies because most of them have additives and preservatives that can upset the gut in the long run. This route is super cost effective too! (Always a pro)

I put in on most breakfast bowls, toasts, dark chocolate, the possibilities are endless. Making it at the beginning of the week is usually the easiest for convenience, but honestly, you can whip it up in less than 5 minutes if you have a craving!

This recipe works perfectly for all frozen or fresh fruits too. If you’re using peaches, mangos, or apples, I recommend giving them a couple pulses in a blender (unless they’re finely chopped).

Ingredients

  • Frozen Raspberries (Any other berry or frozen fruit will work as well! I love blueberry jam too)
  • Honey

^ I never measure for this. You can use a whole bag or berries or make individual servings. For the honey, just sweeten it to your liking! If I had to guess I usually only add about 1 Tbsp. of honey for half of a small bag of berries.

Make

In a small/medium saucepan add berries and honey over medium heat. Stir occasionally until broken down and resembles a jam-like consistency. Only takes a couple of minutes! Let cool and store in the fridge or serve hot over ice cream, oats, etc.

Store

Store in an airtight container or mason jar for up to a week.

Tips

This recipe works perfectly for all frozen or fresh fruits too. If you’re using peaches, mangos, or apples, I recommend giving them a couple pulses in a blender (unless they’re finely chopped).

Cooking the Perfect Sweet Potato
I love cooking. Something about it is just so therapeutic to me. But some days I don't want to wait an hour for a sweet potato. I've tried just about every shortcut to cooking the perfect potato, but nothing measures up to a good slow roast in the oven. This is why I love meal prepping at the beginning of the week. Taking a little bit of time to roast sweet potatoes at night makes for the best morning breakfast bowls (or anything, let's be real). So I'll just cut to the chase and tell you how to get that caramelized layer that falls off the skin. Side note, did you know that the typical "sweet potato" is actually a yam? Real sweet potatoes ...

Probiotic Coconut Yogurt
I love coconut yogurt, but I lately it's been breaking the bank for me. This recipe is super tasty and will save you tons if you're a fanatic like myself. It's truly as easy as mixing two ingredients! This particular version is super creamy and rich, which makes it a great topping for smoothies, breakfast bowls, and whatever else you can think up (check out this pumpkin loaf I topped it on)If you're looking for a lighter option, try mixing up the coconut milk you're working with. For instance, a reduced fat or regular can of coconut will yield thinner results. I'd love to hear some feedback on this one if you decide to do so! You can also use ...

Herbal Coffee Smoothie
Are you a coffee or a tea person? This question always stumps me. I used to always be a coffee person, but after switching to a less-caffeinated lifestyle, I became the biggest tea-fiend. If you're like me, you miss the taste and smell of coffee. Something about it smells like home. Last year, I found chicory coffee, and let me tell you it has been a game changer! Here's why: It's anti-inflammatory. Because it's made from chicory root instead of coffee beans, it's less acidic. There's zero caffeine! So unlike decaf coffee containing trace amounts of caffeine, you can be sure this is at zero. Chicory may also help decrease blood sugar l ...
