I got a SPIRALIZER!!!!!

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Chicken Breast (cooked), no skin, 4 ounces - 137 cal
Onions, raw, 2 cup, chopped - 122
Green Peppers (bell peppers), 1 cup, strips - 38
Zucchini, 1.25 cup, sliced - 36
Dinner TOTALS: 333

This is the coolest thing. It was just about $20 and you can make "noodles" out of zucchini. I've actually made these and put marinara on them and it really seems like pasta. You don't have to cook the zucchini either so it retains all of it's nutrition. I was skeptical and thought it would be weird not to cook it, but the texture comes out pretty close to cooked pasta.

Here's what it looks like and how you put the vegetables on it:

You can do other veggies too, like carrots and cucumber:

Anyway, It's a pretty cool gadget. I'm going to make a spiralized salad for mothers day

    I have been looking at these for a while... my only worry is that it could be hard on my wrist since i have carpel tunnel. is that the case?

    I had a blast with mine, when I got it. I wish I had got the plastic kind, the one I got leaves some "mush" on one end of the veggie. But then that other kind leaves a piece down the middle...anyway, I really like it.

    Cinnamon sprinkled apples are awesome when the apples are spiralized.
