Finally back to my blog and back on Weight Watchers…
Sometimes life gets in the way of the things we want to do. I love cooking and developing new recipes, but as challenges with my 16 year-old with Autism have grown more severe, I haven’t had the time to update my blog and share. But, I’ve missed it, so I am back!
Weight Watchers Freestyle Program has changed quite a few point values, making some of my favorite foods lower or zero points, so I am a happy camper.
Today, I am going to share a recipe I developed using canned jackfruit. Jackfruit has become popular in American culture, because with the popularity of Forks Over Knives eating, it can be used as a vegan meat substitute. Like tofu, it takes on the flavor of the sauce it is cooked in. And, if you remove the core, the flesh of the fruit can be shredded once cooked, giving it the texture of shredded/pulled chicken, pork, or beef.
