We Be Jamming!

Fact – I don’t eat sugar or sweeteners.

This is fine most of the time, except when I am desperately craving something like jam on my toast.

My mind made a huge leap today.

Isn’t jam just smooshed up fruit with sugar and gelatin added in?

  • Why, yes it is!!

Does ‘jam’ have to come out of a jar?

  • Why, no it doesn’t!

Couldn’t I just put berries on my toast and almond butter?

  • Yeeessss!!!

Time to break some rules!

Simply take a slice of the best bread on the planet, toast it, slather on a tablespoon of nut butter, and slice some berries and then load them on top.

Figure Competitor Jam

So simple, yet so tasty!

Try not to eat it all at once.

No one was home, so I threw all the manners out the window and chowed down like a true competitor!

*Chomp* Need I say more?

Check your teeth, er face, when you’re done.

The eating got a bit rambunctious at my house this morning….

No judging! Almond butter is messy stuff.

Plain and simple sometimes works and tastes best!

I can’t wait to find some raspberries and blackberries at a decent price and give those a go next. Mmmm!

What is your favorite plain and simple treat?

  1. You are adorable. And hilarious. When my cousin and I were smaller we totally thought jam was just mushed up berries. So we ran down the street, picked a ridiculous amount of blackberries, mushed them up and put them on our peanut butter sandwiches. Genius!

  3. Mmmm looks delish! I also sometimes just “warm” my berries on the stove top with a tsp of water so they release their own juices, then you’ve got an even bigger mess on your hands! 🙂

    Jam is a wonderful thing…

    Its just as yummy to do with a tbsp of dark choco chips! yummmmy!

  4. MMM, sounds so good. Why didn’t I ever think of that!!

  5. Did it! Mashed the ripe strawberries first, then applied on top of peanut butter and bread. YUM! You are a genius, woman!
