This winter… I decided to cut out the crap and eat nothing but REAL food… Yep… basically protein, veggies and fruit. That is it. No Gluten… no Sugar… no dairy. I had to get creative with my eating….. so I wouldn’t get bored! SOOOO I bought a Spiralizer! How fun is this? This made eating veggies so much more interesting! Here you see my spiralized Zucchini that I could saute in onions and garlic OR…. use as a zucchini noodle for my tomato sauce! Yum!
I discovered how fun it was to spiral things… like onions (thinly sliced,) potatoes, cucumbers, and squash!
Think about it… thinly sliced red onion for salads, burgers or sandwiches…. thinly sliced yellow onion for french onion soup, spiraled cucumber for an interesting cucumber salad with rice vinegar and toasted sesame seeds or apple cider vinegar, dill and pepper…. OR Zucchini “pasta” to satiate even the worst pasta craving! It worked! Potatoes also work great in the spiralizer…. for great home fries! Oh my goodness! So yummy!
So if you are looking for a fun kitchen tool this summer that inspires healthy eating…. Enjoy getting your Spiralizer! I’m not even sure if that is a word… but… I’m sticking with it!
