- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/2 cup water or unsweetened apple juice
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (optional, depending on your sweetness preference)
- Whole-grain bread or gluten-free bread, toasted
- Optional toppings: Sliced bananas, nuts, or additional fresh berries
Instructions on how to make the Blueberry Chia Jam on Toast
- Prepare the Blueberries: In a saucepan, combine the blueberries and water or apple juice. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, mashing the berries slightly as they begin to cook down.
- Chia Thickening: Once the berries have released their juices and the mixture is simmering, stir in the chia seeds. Allow the mixture to simmer gently, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, for about 8-10 minutes until it thickens to a jam-like consistency.
- Enhance Flavor: Add the fresh lemon juice to brighten the flavors, and if needed, a touch of maple syrup to sweeten the jam naturally.
- Cool and Set: Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the jam cool. As it cools, the chia seeds will gel, thickening the jam further.
- Toast the Bread: While the jam is setting, toast your choice of whole-grain or gluten-free bread to a golden brown.
- Assemble: Spread a generous layer of the blueberry chia jam over the toasted bread.
- Add Toppings: If desired, top your jam on toast with sliced bananas, a sprinkle of nuts, or additional fresh berries for extra flavor and nutrients.
- Serve: Enjoy your Vegan Blueberry Chia Jam on Toast as a quick, healthful breakfast or a delightful snack.

In the world of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), detoxing is an art—it’s about nurturing your body, caring for your internal landscape, and fostering a sense of deep, revitalizing wellness. It’s not just about what we remove, but also what we cultivate: a balanced Qi, the life force that dances through every part of our being.
In my TCM practice, detoxing is a symphony of methods designed to renew and enhance your body’s natural rhythms. We look to enliven the liver, the master of detox, alongside the kidneys, digestive tract, and lungs, our natural purification systems. The TCM pantry brims with nature’s detoxifiers like leafy greens, healing bitters, and soothing herbal teas, all working in concert to cleanse your blood and support your liver’s health.

But let’s not forget the soul in the equation. Stress, the silent disruptor of harmony, is met with the gentle power of meditation, the focused calm of Qi Gong, and the flowing movements of Tai Chi. In my approach, emotional serenity is as vital to detoxing as the air we breathe. Join me on this journey of holistic detoxification, where every step is a step toward a more vibrant, energized, and balanced you. Let’s embrace this ancient wisdom and transform our health, one harmonious moment at a time.
