Valentine Toast

Serves 1

1 egg
1 slice whole-grain bread

Using a cookie cutter or knife, cut a heart out of the center of the bread. Spray a pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place the bread in pan over medium to low heat. Crack an egg and place it in the heart cutout. Cover the pan and allow to cook for a few minutes until whites are cooked through. Transfer the finished toast to a plate and adorn with Sriracha or Tabasco hearts. Top the remaining bread heart with homemade Cherry Chia Jam. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Note: I used a 2.5 inch heart shaped cookie cutter.
Cherry Chia Jam

Cherry Chia Jam
Makes about 1 cup of jam

1 cup cherries or berry of your choice (I used frozen pitted cherries)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp water

Defrost the cherries under warm water until thawed and remove pits if necessary. Place the cherries and 1 Tbsp of water in a blender and pulse until cherries are mashed, but not completely pureéd. Transfer the mashed cherries to a jar and stir in the chia seeds. Refrigerate for about 60 minutes until chia seeds expand and turn the content into a thick jam.

    How long will the jam last? Mmmmmm…I’ve been looking for a healthy alternative to the store jams. This would be perfect! Thank you!

    Hey Catherine! I have to admit that I really fell in love with your blog! I am upset about my weight too and I’ve been searching for a solution for so long. With your Rabbit Food Pyramid I hope to lose 20 lbs to feel healthier and maybe to look better 😉 It’s fun to create new meals and also having had enough to eat.
    I always need some kind of inspiration and that’s what you are :), so could you please tell me your height? Love, Sabine

    Catherine, what happened to the sidebar that archived your posts by month? I found that really useful in getting around and would love to see it come back 🙁
