My kids and I were eating this jicama and they asked, “Mom, since potato skin is full of nutrients and we eat it, shouldn’t we eat jicama skin, too?” I almost tasted it to see if it was good, but decided to look it up first. Good thing I did because it’s toxic – do not eat the peel. But inside is a crisp, refreshing, edible vegetable. This excellent source of fiber and vitamin C is delicious dipped into a favorite sauce like cilantro dip, or served with a sprinkle of lime juice and chili powder.

On day 19 of this 365 day project, I ate my daily five (including homemade fruit tarts that my kids crafted with hopes to someday be featured on the show, Kids’ Baking Championship). Did you enjoy yours?

Much love,
