Spiralization. Don’t Be Afraid.

November 21, 2011

So on Saturday, after my 10 miles with Chelsey, I got home to find a very exciting package waiting for me.

Okay, I thought it was exciting.

It was a spiralizer!!!!

Hahaha, I’m sure most of you think I’m insane. Well, I kinda am. But besides that, I’d always wanted to make REAL zucchini spaghetti. I had always just used a peeler, so my zucchini turned out flat, not really like spaghetti.

Well, take a look at this:

BOOYAH! The strands were so long too! It was like Lady and the Tramp!

I even experimented with carrots, which were a little more difficult since they are so thin:

Tada! Isn’t that so cool! and it takes seconds! There are three different blades for different thicknesses, and one can make you potato chips (or chip like shapes out of other veggies). I can’t wait to get experimenting!

I decided to use the spiralizer to help make my lunch! I had a sweet potato, and on the side was zucchini and carrots mixed with nutritional yeast and hummus:

So yesterday, I asked you all to guess who I’d be spending the next few days with.

Well, if you guessed Molly, then you guessed right!!!

My brother and sister-in-law are on a cruise with her family for Thanksgiving and headed out yesterday, so it’s me and Molly until she goes to the “Puppy Hotel” and I fly home for Thanksgiving!

So far we’ve dug some holes, smelled some leaves, ate an evergreen bush and looked absolutely adorable.

It’s going to be a good couple days.


Does anyone have a pet of their own, or enjoy pet-sitting?

Have you ever heard of a spiralizer?

    I’ve had a spiralizer for a couple of years. I’ve never tried it out. There’s a fear factor involved.
