Mexican vegan jicama salad

What better way to get your daily dose of greens and nutrient filled veggies than a big salad bursting with flavour?

Enjoying flavours that compliment each other and make your taste buds happy is the best way to ensure you actually stick with your healthy eating goals and make healthy living more sustainable and fun.

And seriously, just thinking about the fresh citrus flavour of lime and the fragrant combination of cilantro and avocado is enough to make anyone’s mouth water!

If you haven’t tried jicama before, it a root vegetable with a subtle sweet flavour that gives you prebiotic fibre to keep your belly happy. You can find it in most grocery stores in the section with ethnic foods. I get mine delivered from spud.ca.
