8 Life-Changing Ways to Use a Spiralizer

8 Life-Changing Ways to Use a Spiralizer! This little $30 kitchen gadget makes healthy eating super fun and easy! | pinchofyum.com

Ooh la la!

Is that not the prettiest rainbow of spiralized vegetables? 💕

I have been talking a lot in my recent posts about this new fangled contraption that I’ve recently added to my kitchen collection. You’ve been talking about it, too, in the comments, because you’re on point with everything, you guys. This mysterious thing we’ve been speaking of is called a SPIRALIZER.

Here’s the thing about me and a spiralizer. First, when I thought about the concept of a machine that would take up kitchen space just to make noodles out of vegetables, I got kind of annoyed. Why would I want another thing to clutter up my kitchen cabinets which are already packed to the brim with stuff because my whole food blog operation exists out of a teeny-tiny kitchen with minimal storage? Yeah, not happening.

But then I caved. Peer pressure. I’m weak and I want to be like the cool kids and I got one. Correction: I got, like, five. I was bound and determined to find out if these things were actually as wonderful as the foodie section of the interwebs was claiming them to be, and if so, which one was really worth the precious kitchen cabinet space.

And as much I hate to admit that I might have been wrong, I have to tell you the truth: after playing with a variety of spiralizers for a few months, I am here to tell you that these little gizmo-doodles are just super super super fun. Not to mention HEALTHY.

I mean, if you don’t feel something warm and fuzzy inside when you watch a sweet potato turn into tiny little spirals (and then proceed to EAT said tiny little spirals covered in, oh, I don’t know, CASHEW CREAM SAUCE?), I don’t know why we’re friends.

With that, I’m going to let you jump right into the video where I’ll tell you the one spiralizer you should never-ever-ever buy + two spiralizers that I would consider winners. If you have never seen a spiralizer in action before, you are in for a treat.
