Chicken, Apple, Yicama Rice Wrps

Crunchy Jicama Apple Chicken Rice Wraps

A refreshing heart healthy lunch wrap with an extra crunch of nutrition.

Have you tried Jicama? A root vegetable that resembles a large potato with a mild flavor – when eaten raw, it has a nice crisp texture, adding a crunch of fibre that contributes to lower cholesterol levels, controls blood sugar and aids in weight loss. Along with vitamin C, folic acid and a moderately good source of Potassium which is important for fluid balance and blood pressure control. Then there is the benefit of adding a healthy fat found in avocados, antioxidants in walnuts, and anti-inflammatory cilantro. Plus, we all know this crisp crunch and what they say about having  "An apple a day..." – especially our local BC Ambrosia apple.
