Singkamas FTW!

Leave a comment

For the past few months I’ve been so much conscious about my figure. It’s pretty hard at first but when you finally get into shape you’ll realize that’s the best decision that you ever made! I’m so desperate to get into shape and tone my muscles so that’s why I searched diet plans, exercises and other things that can help me to lose weight! My mom is very supportive, she was like “Hey, eat this (Fruits, veggies etc.) she even bought me a Jicama or Simply “Singkamas”.Image

I thought Jicama can help you gain weight because when I eat Jicama I get bloated! But, I guess I’m wrong, ‘Cause according to my research Jicama or Singkamas or Turnip is a highly nutritious vegetable and it has practically no fat content or calories and is low in sodium.

Well, Jicama is a large, bulbous root vegetable. A bulb may weigh one or two pounds and has a rough ‘n’ tough brown skin which should be peeled before eating or cooking. Inside, the flesh is white, wet and crunchy, similar to a raw potato but wetter and crunchier. The flavor is slightly sweet and a little nutty. Health Benefits of Jicama:

1.Boosts the immune system

2.Lowers cholesterol levels

3.Aids weight loss

It is also loaded of important minerals and vitamins such as : potassium, iron, calcium, and fiber.

P.S. other names for Jicama are also called yam bean, Mexican potato, Mexican turnip or singkamas!

Marabou Mint Chocolate

Marabou Mint Krokant is ❤ ♡ ❤ ღ. I am so happy that finally I got my favorite mint chocolate and I am so thankful to my brother-in-law who went to Sweden for god knows why, kaya yan I got the chance to taste the goodness of “Marabou”, a famous Swedish chocolate. It is so Creamy and delicious! There are bits of crunchy caramel that taste just like daim and the mintiness that just rolls over my mouth. Gah, when I saw it in our fridge,I can’t resist and I end up eating it even I’m on a diet. Thank god, he created the word “exercise”!
