Today’s Focus is on: JICAMA

Ever pass by that ugly, brown turnip-like object in the grocery store and wonder, what in the world is that thing?

Today’s your lucky day.

That is a jicama (pronounced HIK-ka-ma with an ‘h’), a refreshing, crispy tuber that’s popular in Mexican cooking. Its sweet, mild, slightly nutty flavor lends itself well to salsas, veggie trays and as a salad topping. It’s also a great alternative to chips or crackers to dip into guacamole. The texture of jicama is similar to that of a raw potato or an apple.

Jicama can be eaten raw or cooked, but raw is the most popular method.

There isn’t a whole lot in the way of nutrition packed into a jicama, but this root vegetable does contain some fiber and Vitamin C and not too much in the way of carbs. For comparison, a cup of white potato has a little more than 30 grams of carbs, while a cup of jicama has only 11.5 grams.

If you’re looking for something to add to your veggie repertoire, it might be worth giving jicama a shot.

Here’s your Trick:

The brown skin on a jicama needs to be removed before you eat it. After you’ve removed the skin, use a sharp knife to take a slice off the top and bottom of the root so you can create a flat surface making it sturdy for cutting. Slice it in thin strips to prepare it for being added to a salad or stir fry.

And Your Tip:

When you’re shopping for jicama, choose one that is medium in size with firm, dry roots. Don’t buy a jicama that’s larger than the size of two fists. When they get that large, the sugar in them starts to convert to starches making them taste woody.

And now, your Recipe:

Pico de Gallo Shredded Chicken (it’s Paleo!)
Serves 4

3 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
5 medium vine ripened tomatoes, chopped
1 cup peeled and diced raw jicama
1 medium red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 jalapeno pepper, de-seeded and chopped
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt

In a large slow cooker, place all ingredients; stir well to combine. Cover and cook on LOW for 10 hours or until chicken is fork-tender. Shred chicken with 2 forks and blend into slow cooker juices.

NUTRITION per serving: 194 Calories; 5g Fat ; 23g Protein; 15g Carbohydrate; 4g Dietary Fiber; 51mg Cholesterol; 544mg Sodium. Exchanges: 0 Grain(Starch); 3 Lean Meat; 2 Vegetable; 0 Fruit; 1/2 Fat. Points: 5

SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve over Cauli-Rice (process cauliflower in a blender or food processor until it resembles grains of rice; steam “rice” till tender; drain; salt and pepper to taste and fluff with a fork). Add a relish tray of carrot and celery sticks, cherry tomatoes and cucumber spears.

With Heartfelt Thanksgiving

With Heartfelt Thanksgiving

Dear Friends,

For the past 11 years, our mission has been to get families back to the dinner table one meal at a time. We are pleased to report that thousands of families have taken on our mission as their own and brought their dinner tables back from the bookbags and junk mail and into the realm for which it was created; sitting down to a good healthy dinner as a family.

We’ve received thousands of testimonials and thank yous from these families, but now we want to turn the tables a bit (so to speak, LOL) and say thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. Your inspiration has been amazing, your support has been unbelievable. We continue to be blessed daily from all of you and for that I thank you.

To show our appreciation to you, we would like to treat you to our Pleasing Pumpkin Menu!  We have put the menu up for all of you on our Facebook page.  To get your menu, just click below:

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.

Control the 3 Hormones That Cause Holiday Weight Gain

Control the 3 Hormones That Cause Holiday Weight Gain

Dear Friends,

FYI, I personally endorse and use this product…thought you would want to check it out, too. I know these guys (for real, in the flesh!) and have nothing but the utmost of respect for all they are doing in the nutrition world. Their stuff is stellar!

And because it’s “that time of year” again, and most people just accept the fact that holiday foods, family and stress will lead to weight gain over the holidays, I wanted to give you a chance to stop it in its tracks…this is what I’m doing to keep everything in check!

We all know the types of foods we consume during the holiday season are going to cause our weight to climb, but combined with the inevitable stress that comes with those holidays, you have a hormonal cascade that ensures we pack on the pounds!

This doesn’t have to be the case, as I will show you later. In fact, you can even LOSE the weight during the holiday eating season–check this information out:

There Are 3 Hormonal Causes for the Holiday Assault on Your Waistline

1 – High Ghrelin Levels: High ghrehlin levels are responsible for making you hungry, which shows up in the form of uncontrollable cravings for comfort foods. Cravings and holiday foods do NOT mix.

2 – Insulin Resistance: The excess sugar we consume during the holidays can spike our insulin levels to the point where we develop insulin resistance. This then causes almost any sugar we ingest to turn into pure fat.

3 – Excess Cortisol: According to the Mayo Clinic, stress levels are magnified during the holidays. Stress can cause excess cortisol release, which leads directly to belly fat.

How to Stop this Hormonal Assault And Actually Lose Inches This Holiday Season?

So what can we do in order to reverse the holiday weight gain cycle?

The answer comes from our friend and trusted advisor Dr. Steven Sisskind MD. Dr. Steve, as we call him, specializes in finding all natural ways to balance the hormones that lead to excess fat. He has created a video for our readers that will teach you all natural ways to control the three hormones responsible for holiday weight gain, plus how to increase a hormone called adiponectin that is directly responsible for fat burning. So if you have ever had a problem with holiday weight gain, I strongly recommend you:

Watch this video now, that’s me talking about this! <— Click Here

By keeping the three hormones that cause holiday weight gain in check, not only will you prevent
belly-fat from accumulating… you might just be able to actually lose some pounds this time around–how cool would that be?

Dr. Steve Sisskind is the genius behind this. He is a graduate of Stanford University and the Baylor College of Medicine and knows his stuff; he was one of our guests on our webinar series.

I was especially interested in the all natural, ingredients that Dr. Steve has discovered that not only control these hormones, but also are proven to more than double the speed at which people lose weight (you will have to watch to the end to learn about these).
