Asian Jackfruit Cabbage Cups! Just grab a can of jackfruit from Trader Joe’s…drain, rinse and chop. Drizzle avocado oil into a warm skillet and stir-fry jackfruit with some minced ginger and coconut aminos or teriyaki sauce. After 3-4 minutes, remove from heat and add your favorite veggies…red pepper, carrot, snap peas, mushrooms…along with some garlic. Toss everything together with some kelp noodles (or other asian noodle of choice) and spoon into a leaf of cabbage. Terrific dinner…awesome taste! Totally on point!With all this talk about jackfruit and it’s fiber benefits…some may be wondering why there is such a big deal about fiber. Fiber helps your body function (and process food) with more regularity. Without it…our bodies are left sluggish. Leading medical professionals set our daily fiber goals are around 20-35 grams of fiber a day…and for most, that amount hard to meet! Soluble fiber becomes a gel-like substance and keeps our glucose levels at bay, while insoluble fiber absorbs water and helps things move along our gut with ease. Jackfruit boasts both types of fiber, clocking in at 25% of our daily needed soluble fiber! Tastes great…is a vegan meat substitute…and boosts the fiber we need…yeppers! This fruit is definitely worth checking out! …for recipes and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com#dairyfree #glutenfree #veganfood #vegetarian #healthyeating #cleaneats #wholefoods #thenewhealthy #whatsfordinner #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedfood #plantbasedvegan #foodisfuel #eatrealfood #healthyrecipes #veganfoodlovers #healthyfoodshare #eattherainbow #huffposttaste #eatfresh #goodeats #dailyfoodfeed #feedfeed #buzzfeedfood #jackfruit #jackfruits #traderjoes

Jackfruit for dinner tonight? Yes, please! Throw together this quick and easy fajita stir fry and score big with your family and friends. Jackfruit takes on the texture of pulled chicken, so it is a great vegan substitute for this fiesta fav. Simply take a can of jackfruit (like from Trader Joe’s), drain, rinse and chop. Stir-fry your favorite fajita veggies along with your jackfruit…adding some diced green chilis, salsa verde, and cilantro…and you have a meal that can be scooped with a chip or wrapped in a tortilla. Pair with a side of rice and beans and you have a perfectly delicious vegan dinner dish. …for recipes and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com#dairyfree #glutenfree #veganfood #vegetarian #healthyeating #cleaneats #wholefoods #thenewhealthy #whatsfordinner #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedfood #plantbasedvegan #foodisfuel #eatrealfood #healthyrecipes #veganfoodlovers #healthyfoodshare #eattherainbow #huffposttaste #eatfresh #goodeats #dailyfoodfeed #feedfeed #buzzfeedfood #jackfruit #jackfruits #traderjoes

Jackfruit Week continues! Yesterday’s post was savory…but today what I have to offer is a deliciously sweet treat! Check out this easy, creamy, chocolaty ice cream! Cinch to make and full of fiber! You can’t taste the jackfruit at all…and, thanks to @lilsipper’s idea of adding raw, chopped zucchini, there is a rich array of nutrients with each spoonful. Who knew that chocolate ice cream could be so good for you? Ingredients1/2 cup almond milk1 frozen banana1 cup frozen raw, chopped zucchini1/c cup frozen raw, chopped jackfruit (like from Trader Joe’s)2 pitted dates1 scoop chocolate vegan protein powder (like @nuzest_usa)1 tablespoon cacao powderAdd all ingredients to a high powered blender (such as @vitamix) and blend until smooth (careful not to over blend as contents will become consistency of a smoothie rather than ice cream). Sprinkle with cacao nibs and dive in! Enjoy each delicious, nutritious bite! …for recipes and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com#dairyfree #glutenfree #veganfood #vegetarian #healthyeating #cleaneats #wholefoods #thenewhealthy #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedfood #plantbasedvegan #foodisfuel #eatrealfood #healthyrecipes #veganfoodlovers #healthyfoodshare #huffposttaste #eatfresh #goodeats #dailyfoodfeed #feedfeed #buzzfeedfood #jackfruit #jackfruits #nuzest_usa #nuzestusa #Ilovenuzest #lilsipper #icecream

Welcome to Jackfruit Week!What is jackfruit, you may be asking? It is a tropical fruit that is considered to be the largest tree-borne fruit in the world…one fruit said to grow up to 100 lbs! It boasts huge amounts of fiber…7 grams in each serving! And, jackfruit is incredibly versatile, especially for vegans looking for healthy meat-like substitutes. It is super low calorie, is low on the glycemic index, and a great source of B-complex vitamins. From sweet to savory, this food source truly hits the jackpot! Where do you procure such said fruit? Good question! I have yet to lay my hands on an actual whole fruit, but understand that they can be found in Asian markets. For now, I am fully satisfied with the canned version found at Trader Joe’s. Just a quick drain and rinse, and you are good to go!Up for your Jackfruit recipe consideration today is using it in kabobs. Just thread with your usual kabob fare (zucchini, pineapple, onion, vegan sausage) and lightly brush with a sauce of your choosing (shown here with Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos Teriyaki Sauce). Place on the BBQ for 5-7 minutes, turning once. Serve with a side of brown rice and you have a dinner plate that is high in flavorful, satisfying fiber. Family and friend tested and approved! …for recipes and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com#dairyfree #glutenfree #veganfood #vegetarian #healthyeating #cleaneats #wholefoods #thenewhealthy #whatsfordinner #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedfood #plantbasedvegan #foodisfuel #eatrealfood #healthyrecipes #veganfoodlovers #healthyfoodshare #eattherainbow #huffposttaste #eatfresh #goodeats #dailyfoodfeed #feedfeed #buzzfeedfood #jackfruit #jackfruits #traderjoes #coconutaminos
