Eat What You Crave Without the C.R.A.P.

RD Dawn Jackson Blatner is serving up an Almond Butter & Chia Jam Sandwich from her new book, The Superfood Swap: The 4-Week Plan to Eat What You Crave Without the C.R.A.P. Try it to crunch away your afternoon crash. #CarpePM

Not the same sandwich you packed in your school lunchbox, this has better-for-you bread, almond butter and jam: 

Ingredients for Chia Jam:

2 cups fresh or unsweetened frozen fruit (such as berries, grapes or figs)

2 tablespoons chia seeds

Other Sandwich Ingredients: 

2 slices whole grain bread

2 tablespoons almond butter

2 tablespoons chia jam


For Chia Jam: In a small pot, heat the fruit over medium heat, mashing with a wooden spoon until smooth, about 5 minutes.  Stir in the chia seeds. Store in a lidded jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

For sandwich: We think you know the drill. Pro-tip: Serve open-faced so it feels like two sandwiches.
