I love jicama with a bit of cinnamon and splenda! If you pop it in the microwave or oven for a bit it tastes like baked apples...YUM!

That sounds good too! I bet it would be really yummy to turn it into a crumble with some of the WF pancake syrup and an oatmeal packet...I might have to try this!

I love this thread and it is just what I need. I am struggling this week and needed something new to inspire me.
I bought a bunch of Simply Bars...that was a HUGE mistake. They are really yummy and healthy, but they are very light and I found myself eating more than I was supposed to, sometimes 3 in one day. NOT GOOD! I think I will stick with the pure protien bars because they are more satisfying.
This week has been that week where no matter what I ate I would never besatisfied, I could eat a semi truck full of food and would still want more...I hate it. I know it is hormonal and it will pass.
Today is a new day...
Definitely picking up the jicama and the WF caramel. I am very fortunate I have a Sprouts very close and they carry all the WF products.

Another great Jicama recipe that I have made in the past:
Cut up in cubes
squeeze of lime
sprinkle salt
sprinkle chili powder
sprinkle cayenne if you like a kick.

I am going to the charger/cowboys game today...guess what I am bringing!!

Have a good one~

Jicama is wonderful, but I learned the hard way to choose the smaller ones. Hubby picked me up a very large one, and it was not nearly as sweet - had an almost bitter taste. Once I sliced it up and dehydrated it with some cinamon and splenda, it was fine, but I would not have wanted to eat it plain!

I came back to this thread because I had the same question- I think I might give it a shot either tonight or tomorrow. Getting nervous about the piece I bought, though, because it's pretty big. They didn't have any small ones, only giant ones (about the size of a small canteloupe). Oh well, we'll see how it goes, hopefully it won't be bitter.

Tried the Jicama dipped in caramel sauce and I really like it! Nice sweet treat.

I have never seen Jicama in the store nor rutabaga or rhubarb. Is it a northern thing?

Isn't this a root vegetable? The papers I got specify absolutely no root veggies. Is that different than what you guys were told?
Thanks

Jicama is in the same family as turnips (which are allowed). It's very low carb, high in nutrients and is actually a natural probiotic.

If you have a Spanish market near you that's probably where you'll find it. I live in a city with a big Hispanic population so one of the local chain markets has a lot of stuff I can't find at the other stores.

I got my jicama at Whole Foods and Wegmans, but yes, I am in the NE.

I tried the jicama dessert bake recipe that LizRR posted, it was good but still too crunchy for me, I was hoping for that squishy apple consistancy. My slices might not have been thin enough. I have some leftover, I think I will throw it in the mic tonight and see if that gets it where I want it to be. But overall, thumbs up!
