#BaptistHealthy Easy Eats: Nut Butter Toast

Need a quick and healthy breakfast idea? Toast up a slice of whole grain bread, spread on your choice of nut butter (peanut, almond, or cashew) and top with your favorite fruit.

Just about any juicy fruit will work. Some fruits that work well with chia jam are berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries) and cherries, peaches, apricots and plums.

There are several health benefits of chia seeds. They are full of omega-3 fatty acids, packed with antioxidants, and are a good source of soluble fiber, which is why they gel.
