My Homemade Jamaican Vegan Plate
Because Jamaican cuisine is more than just JERK CHICKEN!
We have some amazing vegan, plant-based dishes too. No disrespect to Jerk Chicken by the way 😆. Here’s one of my ERN dishes or should I say ERN Quarantine Dishes? Can you tell that I’m dreaming about Jamaica…🇯🇲. Everything on my plate is very nutrient-dense. I’ve just focused only a few nutrients for each item.
Jamaica’s national fruit. Rich in fats. Great source of vitamin C, a nutrient that is essential for a healthy functioning immune system, which helps protect your body from various diseases. Read my recent in-depth ‘Can vitamin C help with cancer and common colds’ article by clicking here.
Leafy green vegetable. Rich source of iron and vitamin C. High in calcium for strong bones and teeth.
🥬🇯🇲 GREEN BANANA
May have an appetite-reducing effect due to their high content of fibre and resistant starch (which cannot be digested but promotes healthy gut bacteria).
Also from the Musaceae banana family. Rich source of fibre, vitamins A, C, and B-6, and the minerals magnesium and potassium (as I said all these foods are nutrient-dense!).
The high amount of potassium is essential for maintaining the cell and body fluids that control our heart rate and blood pressure.
