Jícama is a very juicy, lightly sweet and nutty tuber with a distinct crunch and slightly moist, its texture is much like a crisp apple. It is most commonly enjoyed raw, but you can cook jícama too. Its white flesh stays crisp when cooked briefly. You can find jícama at any supermarket or produce shops, it can be peeled with a kitchen knife and cut in slabs and then into sticks, or you could grate it and add a flavorful crunch to your next salad.
Jícama is a great low calorie snack. You can enjoy it with some lemon, salt, probably some Tajín seasoning powder consisting in chile peppers, vinaigrette or salad dressings. It can be mixed with carrot sticks, cucumber, mango or any other fruit. It is also said that jícama aids in digestion and helps the immune and circulatory systems. Jícama is a great idea for the summer!

Sea turtles have roamed the Earth’s oceans for the last 100 million years. The actual documentation of the age of any species of sea turtle is difficult. What we do know is that sea turtles live a long time (some can live up to 50 years or more) and have similar lifespans to humans. Most marine turtles take decades to mature—between 20 and 30 years—and remain reproductively active for another 10 years.


The word jade comes from jadeite, a pyroxene rich in sodium and aluminum. The variation of the components and their quantities affect the overall color of the material.

Although color is probably the stone’s most important value factor, for the Mayans, the value of jade went beyond its material worth. Perhaps precisely because of those colors, which mirror that of water and vegetation, it was symbolically associated with life and death and therefore possessed high religious and spiritual importance.

Jade was shaped into a variety of objects and tools, its hardness was perfect for utility objects as well as it’s beauty was so admired that figurines, celts, ear spools, teeth inlays, mosaics, belt decoration, masks and other sculptures were highly treasured by the Mayans.

This precious stone was also used in jewelry, and as an offering to the gods, as trading currency, and sometimes as a treatment for kidney disease. Jade was held in higher regard than even gold and silver, as the Mayans considered it to be sacred and holy and the ultimate symbol for everything good including eternal love. They placed jade beads in the mouth of the dead, probably believing that it took the deceased breath, soul and spirit into it.
