Jackfruit BBQ

JACKFRUIT BBQ….

 

We are creatures of habit… true! I noticed a common answer among most of my clients, when asked the question, what do you typically eat in a day? Initial reaction is, “I eat pretty healthy”. Once the question has sunk bellow the surface, it’s quite common for them to realize they eat a lot of the same foods. Those same foods are typically processed and come packaged with a paragraph of ingredients. So, again I am inviting you to step out of your comfort box of meals and be a bit more adventurous.

 

Jackfruit, native to Thai land, is enormous and prickly on the outside. As jackfruit is cooked, it begins to soften and pulls apart in a meat-like texture.  It is completely versatile, full of fiber and B vitamins. The fruit’s isoflavonoids, antioxidants, and phytonutrients mean that jackfruit has cancer-fighting properties. Also known to help cure ulcers and indigestion.

In a large frying pan, cook the jackfruit, onions, pepper and garlic. Towards the end of cooking, add in the BBQ and hot sauce. Awesome to use in sandwiches or wraps. Summer BBQ’s are coming to an end before you know it, maybe try this recipe and share with friends and family! 🙂 Possibilities are endless!

There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.

“Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked.” Patanjali- The yoga sutras
