Jackfruit is going to be something you’ll hear more and more about this year. It’s making it’s way through the plant-based lifestyle diets with it’s ability to mimic something pretty darn spectacular for vegans – and that my friends, is pulled pork.

You can find jackfruit either canned or fresh, and is most often found in Asian marketplaces. With it’s mild taste and meaty texture, it’s the new go-to for vegan tacos, sloppy joes and shredded chicken. It grows in warm climates, which makes it a much more sustainable fruit among global climate changes. Best part (besides being a fruit that can mimic meat) it’s only 50 calories on average per serving! Jackpot, jackfruit.
