Most people do not know what Jicama is. It is a crisp, edible root that resembles a turnip and can be used for many things and it is ideal for a low glycemic lifestyle.  Jicama will keep under refrigeration for up to two weeks and it is a great source of vitamin c and is fat free—making it a superb on-the-go snack.

Here are some of the many ways I use Jicama:

  • Eat raw as a snack
  • Salad
  • Salsas
  • Vegetable platters
  • A substitute for water chestnut in Chinese dishes
