Day 10: Jackfruit
Jackfruit is a sweet tropical fruit that is used in many desserts…but did you know it also makes an amazingly delicious meat substitute? As it cooks it begins to shred and pull apart similar to chicken or pork. When seasoned, it can be used in so many dishes from vegan tuna to tacos.
I’m kind of obsessed with the Jackfruit nachos from Sage Organic Bistro, they are so tasty and would really fool you for being meat…
Here are some reasons to love Jackfruit:
- It’s super easy to digest and instantly replenishes, revitalizes and energizes your body.
- Super low in calories and a great #lowfat all #natural meat substitute.
- Full of vitamins (like B-complex, calcium and folic acid), minerals (like potassium, magnesium and iron) and anti-oxidants (like vitamin A & C).
- Full of fiber and helps detoxify the body.
