The New Year is upon us, and one of my favourite Christmas gifts this year inspired me to make a post about it. I thought many of you could use this item to help with your New Year’s goals. You may have even heard of it before: The Paderno World Cuisine Spiralizer.
The Spiralizer I received was a basic 3 blade model – which is probably all you really need. However, they also have a 4 blade, if you are interested.
It comes with 3 blades, which make noodles, ribbons, and quick work of shredding. It can be used on any fruit or vegetable – including cabbage, carrots, zucchini, apples, potatoes, and more. I made Zucchini Noodles my very first time using it, and in LESS THAN A MINUTE, I had an enormous bowl full of noodles that I topped with marinara. I didn’t even bother to cook or heat it – but those noodles were textured like, and tasted like, real spaghetti. It was amazing. All for less than 150 calories(with the marinara!).
Use the ribbon blade to make roll-ups with your zucchini – fill them with sliced meats, pesto, herbed goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, or anything else you like. It would make for a healthy and reasonably low calorie snack.
It shreds heads of cabbage quickly, and you can make healthy baked apple chips/rings, or your own sweet potato curly fries, plus much more.
This is an easy, quick, and relatively low-cost tool that you can use to make healthy and low-calorie dinners, lunches, and snacks that taste great, but don’t make you feel as if you’re suffering. I hope you all give it a try.
I’ve found a few cookbooks dedicated to recipes for the Spiralizer, as well. You can finds links to a few of them below:
If you have a Paderno Spiralizer, let me know in the comments what kind of healthy recipes you’ve been making with it. I wish you all a healthy and happy New Year!
