I confess that this is the only food I did not personally go out to purchase and consume in order to write my post. I couldn't find the darn things!!
Jicamas (Jicami?? Jicamus??) originally come from South & Central America. They are sweet & crunchy and can be eaten raw or cooked like a potato. Sounds like something I'd like to try!
*they have a lot of vitamin C.
*they are low sodium and very little fat.
*they have few calories and lots of fiber.
*they contain soluable fiber, so it can lower cholesterol and stabilizes blood sugar levels.
*they contain 4 mg of iron - that's about 22% of the daily recommeded allowance.
*they full of potassium, calcium & magnesium
*they contain B-6 for brain functions
Has anyone had these before??
