Put the French fries down. Seriously… nobody needs that in their body. Instead, try a snack of fresh sliced jicama sticks. Delicious!
What is jicama, you ask? It’s one of those veggies you walk right past at the market… it looks like a potato on the outside, looks like a radish on the inside, and tastes a bit like an Asian pear. My pint size diners call jicama a “fruit vegetable” because it’s sweet. Even better than the taste is the nutritional punch – jicama is starchy, with enough calories and carbs to make a filling snack, and offers a LOT of fiber and vitamin C. Take that, French fries!
Simply cut a jicama in half, trim off the peel, and slice into French fry size sticks. Sprinkle with cinnamon (not sugar, just cinnamon) and enjoy. Sometimes, healthy eating really is this simple!
