Hello! Popping in today to for a quick off-the-cuff review of something cool I found today! FYI: This post is not sponsored or anything. I found and purchased this item myself at our local Wal-mart and wanted to write a brief review about it 🙂
For a while now I have been coveting a vegetable spiralizer but never felt like spending more than $20 for one since some of the ones I have seen really didn’t look like they were worth more than that. It looked like a great way to add in extra vegetables to our diet, plus now that I’m eating fewer grains, I haven’t had pasta in months.
I was at my local Wal-Mart this morning and found some of these simple spiralizers by Veggetti. I have seen some like these before but wasn’t sure how they would hold up or how well they would work for different vegetables (soft and hard) so I bought one for $15 and decided to give it a go. I am skeptical of the “as seen on TV” type gadgets, but I was curious – I had to try! On a side note, I suspect that’s how they get most people to buy those types of gadgets: curiosity mostly 😉
Turns out, it works great! I made noodles with zucchini (zoodles), cucumbers (coodles??), and even pepino melon (hmm, moodles perhaps?). I didn’t have carrots to try but I used sweet potatoes instead and it worked perfectly. Let’s see, I guess those would be called swoodles. It’s even more fun making up names for these noodles than making and eating them, haha!
Down the road I want to try some more fruits, like melon or apples, and maybe peaches (those would definitely be poodles!).
