Jackfruit seeds - The true Indian superfood 1. Versatile - boil them, roast them or cook them like a curry to go with rice. 2. Nutritious – - polyphenols that give you ageless skin, - zinc & other micro minerals that help boost fertility and hormonal health. - fibre, riboflavin and rich Vit B profile that both reduce and regulate high BP, improve blood sugar control and reduce gut inflammation. 3. Aam aadmi fruit – Easy on the pocket, every part of it is useful, it’s zero wastage. As a team, we often sit together and peel open the jackfruit. We chat boyfriends, chai, clients. We learn that hard exteriors may be tough to handle but hold the promise of sweetness inside. -- Oh btw, monsoon is a great time for jackfruit seeds. The green veggies are off the menu but the seeds ensure a steady supply of vitamins, fibre and minerals. -- P.S. - if you follow Shravan, you may also put meat and eggs off the list, and the seeds will ensure a steady supply of amino acids too. They are truly versatile. #IndianSuperfoods #PlantProtein #Jackfruit
