If you’re looking to add more vegetables to your diet in a creative and delicious way, then spiralizer recipes are a game-changer. Although I’m no longer strictly Paleo, I still prefer to eat clean and incorporate nutrient-dense vegetables into my meals. Spiralizing is an easy way to make vegetables more enjoyable and satisfying, leaving you feeling great. So, let’s dive into the world of spiralizers and discover 12 mouthwatering recipes to try!
For the longest time, it was all about zoodles
When you think of a spiralizer, the first thing that probably comes to mind is zoodles. But did you know that you can spiralize a variety of other vegetables too? Think zucchini, potato, cucumber, carrot, onion, cabbage, butternut squash, beets, apples, and pears. By substituting pasta with these veggie noodles, you’ll not only reduce your carbohydrate intake but also increase your vitamin intake. A win-win situation!
