Jicama Cinnamon Sticks
So I have been MIA for a while….however during that time I once again started to find myself along with my inspiration. I started down a new path/diet called Ideal Protein. (clickable link) I saw a good friend of mine go through this crazy transformation of weight loss so I asked her to take me along one time to the center she goes to. Read bellow about it.

This is the Ideal Protein Difference
Maintaining a stable weight after dieting often requires changes to your lifestyle habits. This is why Ideal Protein strongly emphasizes education and understanding. You must learn to eat “smarter” or risk regaining your lost weight. Therefore, when you begin our program you will be assigned a personal weight loss coach. Your coach will assist you through each of the 4 phases of the Ideal Protein method. In phases 1 & 2 your coach will help you set your weight loss goals and support you on that journey. In phases 3 & 4 your coach will shift focus to weight stabilization and post diet living, teaching you weight maintenance habits that may assist you in keeping the excess pounds off after dieting. You will learn:
- how your body fat is burnt;
- the relationship between insulin and weight gain;
- which foods are best suited for healthy weight management;
- when, why and in what combination to eat carbohydrates, fats, and proteins;
- and much more.
I am in love with it so far and am not finding myself struggling at all. I have proudly lost 8 pounds and a total of 14 inches on my first week! So I have to eat 4 cups of veggies a day and believe it or not its very hard to do when you’re not used to it. So desperate to get my allotted veggies in I came up with this simply delicious recipe.
This is kid friendly and takes minutes to make.
What you’ll need:
1 jicama cut up into sticks or pre-cut Jicama sticks from Trader Joes
1/2 lemon worth of lemon juice
about 2 tsp of cinnamon
1 packet of Stevia (or favorite sweetener)
large zip top bag or Tupperware container
Toss the jicama in the lemon juice until coated. Then add sweetener and cinnamon and tops to coat.
Viola you’re done!
This recipe made about 2 cups worth.
