Need Help Eating More Veggies? Spiralize!
Have you been in a slump with finding new and exciting ways of eating more veggies? I can fall into a pattern of eating the same vegetables, prepared in the same way and it can get boring. I was recently given a spiralizer and have had a lot of fun discovering new ways to enjoy more vegetables. For some reason creating noodle like cuts of vegetables makes them more exciting and fun to eat. And not just for my kids…it seems to work that way for everyone. We all love playing with the long noodle-like carrot/beet/cucumber/zucchini cuts of vegetables.
If you want to learn more about spiralizing, check out this website, Inspiralized with information about what vegetables to spiralize and cooking techniques.
And I’d like to share a great recipe that tastes fantastic and will help increase your vegetable intake while decreasing your grain consumption. It’s fantastic and comes from Eat Yourself Skinny. See what you think and let me know if it was a hit in your home too.
