On you recent grocery store run you may have seen an 80+ pd jackfruit and wondered “now what exactly is that?” Well the jackfruit is a pretty big tree-borne fruit. It can be served as everything from a meat substitute in a BBQ pulled pork sandwich to a delicious addition to a banana ice cream dairy free treat or smoothie. It is very versatile as it matures and has a flavor similar to pineapple and banana. The jackfruit boosts fiber, iron, calcium and potassium. Our beauty team are huge fans about incorporating ore fiber into our beauty diets. Eating fiber rich foods aids in the elimination of waste from the body. When waste is not properly excreted from the body it can lead to build up and create an inflammatory environment that can impact the skin.
