No Cooking involved!
Rosemary & Dill Jicama “Fries” were a hit today and they were fast and there was I repeat no cooking involved!!!! I was super excited BECAUSE….I avoid grains, dairy & eat clean but I also watch my oxalate intake.
Oh oxalate- These guys can really work against you if your body doesn’t handle them well. If you have ever had kidney stones, lower back aches after eating certain foods or if you have an unexplained inflammatory response with foods that you just can’t pinpoint then it may be a good time to blame oxalates.
If you are wanting to do a diet check to see if oxalates bother you then try avoiding these foods for a few weeks:
- Wheat Bran
- Instant Coffee
There is a rather long list of Oxalate containing foods low-medium-high. The ones listed above are high. As your body heals you may notice you can handle some of these in small quantities. Yes.. even chocolate. Shew…
But… back to the Jicama Fries!
1 Large Jicama
2 Tablespoons of EVOO
1 Teaspoon of Organic Dried Dill
1 Teaspoon of Organic Dried Rosemary
- Using a paring knife, cut the skin off of the washed Jicama
- Cut into “fries”
- Place into a large glass bowl
- In a separate small bowl, combine the Oil, Herbs & Salt
- Immediately pour over Jicama and toss
