i was at a mexican restaurant and they had the option of jicama instead of chips...i looked it up on the nutrition and it says
"The good: This food is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Potassium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber and Vitamin C."
but it has 10.6 gms of carbs! help me! is this ok?!? not for every day but will it slow me down?
The Best Answer
Jicama is a tuber, and though it is ~1/3 the carbs of potatoes, its still starchy. My vote would be that it's not allowed if you are strictly adhering to slow carb.
Perfectly OK... for binge day Or a binge meal... or in a post-workout meal window maybe?
...But baked crisp in some oil with the right seasoning, they make an awesome low(er) carb french fry alternative!
