This is Sierra: writer, college student, coffee enthusiast, and new to the Farm 2 Counter family! I’m excited to adopt this blogging platform, and look forward to sharing some of our fun recipes, cooking tips, and basically everything you could ever want to know about spicing up your organic lifestyle. Some of my personal interests also include fitness and travel, and I’m a bit of a Harry Potter nerd as well. #ravenclaw 😉
So, to get started, I’m introducing my favorite kitchen tool: a spiralizer!
Spiralizing is a tasty way to eliminate calories and carbs without cutting out your favorite meals, plus it’s a creative way to enjoy your favorite fruits and vegetables. Also, just a heads up, I’m no chef –but we’ll come back to that later. The point is: if I can do it, it’s pretty easy.
There’s a spiralizer for any dish. You can get a small handheld one for infrequent use, or there are electric options that do the work for you. The spiralizer featured below is electric. You feed the produce through the machine, and it creates a noodle-like texture. If you choose your spiralizer right, you can interchange the blades for clean julienne slices or restaurant-quality cuts. To a chef, a spiralizer ensures a gourmet plating style. To me, it’s a fun tool that makes healthy eating a little easier and more enjoyable 🙂
Spiralizers are great for:
- Low-Carb Diets
- Pasta Substitutes
- Improving Health Value
- Inexpensive Meals
- Fun Plating Designs
