After coming across a recipe on Pinterest I decided I needed to have a Spiralizer in my life. Spiralizing is the art of turning vegetables and fruits into noodles and It is a cleaner more wholesome way too eat. Spiralizing is for all ages and my four-year-old granddaughter had a lot of fun turning the handle.
Spiralizing helps promote weight loss and maintenance. Without even noticing you are eating more vegetables which can help keep you fuller longer and help with your every day digestion.
Spiralizer vegetables have a similar texture and consistency to regular pasta and noodles. They are great for those who have autoimmune diseases such as Celiac’s. Also they are helpful for people who are vegan, vegetarian or Paleo lifestyles.
Encourage your kids to spiralize. They will love watching the vegetables turn magically into noodles but only under supervision because the blades are very sharp.
The guidelines for spiralizing are:
1. The vegetable cannot be hollow, seated or have a tough core.
2. The vegetable must be at least 1.5 inches in diameter.
3. The vegetable should be at least 2 inches long.
4. The vegetable must have a firm, solid flesh.
The Spiralizer comes fully assembled and I decided to make a zucchini wrap with hummus as my first attempt.
I sliced off the ends of the zucchini and cut it in half. I decided not to peel it. I didn’t have any problems and it made great noodles.
I’ve also spiralized sweet potatoes and baked them in the oven. Those are pretty good too.
I researched before I purchased a spiralizer and decided that Amazon had the best one for the price.
With Black Friday and the Christmas holidays just around the corner, it might be a good time to buy one for yourself or as a gift for that someone special.
