So this may look like breakfast but actually it’s my second lunch/afternoon snack! Fruit, yogurt and muesli topped with flaked coconut and raisins👌🏻
Does anyone else eat lunch early and then get starving about this time? Any other afternoon snacking tips??
Not sure that your fruit leather is dry. Test It! Try lifting one corner of your fruit leather from the Paraflexx sheet. If your fruit leather is sticking and cannot easily be removed it's not dry enough. Then dry longer until the leather peels off easily. Need Paraflexx Sheets? Click the link in our bio.⠀
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! 🍀
So, fun fact about me: I don’t drink. 🤷🏻♀️ Alcohol + autoimmune disease just don’t quite play well together, so very rarely will you find an adult beverage in my hand. Regardless, today I found my #stpattysday fun at work, serving fruit kabobs with berries and pineapple and donut holes...or fruit-filled ice cream cones with whipped cream! Children and parents alike got excited over skewering their own fruit, proving that almost anyone can get in more fresh fruits (&/or veggies) when we make food fun! Today’s event, hosted by our neighbors at Sláinte Chiropractic, was great for networking, mingling, and sharing! Once again, super proud and excited to be part of a fabulous team!! 🤩💚🍓
(P.S. You know you’re in the right job when you can show up sporting a neon-colored wig!! 🤣)
Hey lovelies...as you know, I.LOVE.JACKFRUIT, it is a healthy and sustainable vegan meat replacement.🌱
This is the first time a try the fruit, and let me tell you....IT.IS.SO.DELICIOUS!👌🏼😋💚
Let me tell you a lil’ bit about it:
🍀Jackfruit is a huge, spined, oval fruit that is believed to have been first cultivated in Indian rainforests.
🍀It's mostly grown in tropical climates (Southeast Asia, Brazil and Africa), and is the largest fruit in the world, weighing up to 80 pounds (about 36 kg) with a length of up to 3 feet (0.91 m).
🍀It is relative of figs and breadfruit. 🍀While it is a fruit, its consistency is similar to that of chicken or pork. It has a fairly neutral taste when young, so it takes on the flavor of whatever sauce or seasoning you pair it with.
🍀The exterior of the fruit is not edible, but the flesh and seeds are commonly eaten.
🍀Unlike animal sources of protein, jackfruit contains no saturated fat or cholesterol, is light on sodium, and is also low in calories, with just 20 per 2.65-ounce serving. Additionally, jackfruit contains 3g of fiber per serving, as well as 110mg of potassium, both heart-healthy nutrients that many of us are not getting enough of. 🍀Plus, it’s sustainably sourced, something that today’s consumers care about and are willing to pay for.
🍀Tastes like a combo of apple, pineapple, bananas, and mango. The aftertaste is heavenly.
🍀The seeds can be roasted, and they taste similar to chesnuts.
Give it a try...you will love it as much as I do!😉
Happy St. Patrick’s lovelies!🍀🎩🌈💰🎉💚
