Jackfruit is an exotic fruit from Southeast Asia and is abundant in protein, potassium, calcium, and iron. Which means it can be used as a meat substitute if you so desire. Believe it or not the flavor and texture is similar to that of pulled pork.
I have eaten Amaranth and it’s similar in taste and texture to quinoa. Amaranth is a great source of protein and fiber, much like quinoa.
Combines the sweetness of broccoli and the bitterness of kale. Widely considered as the predecessor to broccoli rabe.
Popular root vegetable – Filipino cuisine, which is sweet like a yam and purple to boot.
Type of seaweed jam packed with vitamins – A, B2, C,D,E, & K. Also, plentiful in iron, calcium, magnesium, and iodine. Dubbed the newest “Superfood” if you will.
