  1. Jicama is a nice addition to a salad, isn't it? It's also great with salt, lime juice and a little bit of chili powder.

    I also love pomogranite seeds, but rarely treat myself to them as the fruit is too much here.

    THere is a Sprouts near where I work. I really need to get there one of these days!
