Cook's Notes:
Building this Jackfruit bowl for dinner or lunch is easy and fun! I like this bowl served hot, but you can also eat them cold. Low in calories and fat, high in protein and fiber! 
Other ideas to mix it up ... add other veggies such as grilled broccoli, onions, or asparagus. Add grilled tofu, chicken, beef or fish! There are many options and varieties to be creative with. Host a "Make Your Own Bowls" dinner party!
To healthy eating!
