So I have been into healthy eating for a good part of my life. I’m a woman, so what do you expect? Like most women, I want to be fit, healthy, and look great in my clothes. I do not do this for anyone except myself. My husband is very happy with the way I look by the way. He tells me how beautiful I am all the time. I am blessed to have such an amazing husband who does not care if I get fat or stay thin, or am somewhere in between. Honestly, no man should care, although we all know everyone has a preference and likes different body types. I consider myself average, but am always working to be fit and lean. I do this by eating healthy and exercising.
When it comes to healthy eating, there are so many choices. You could hire a chef that is known for cooking healthy meals; you could cook healthy meals yourself; or you could order from one of those healthy home food delivery services. If you would like my personal favorite (review to be out shortly), send me a message in the meantime. I have tried about 7 home food delivery services, and I have one favorite that has perfect portions, no waste, and delicious healthy recipes that are very easy to make. One I tried that was different than the rest is called Hungry Root.
Hungry Root sends you wholesome vegetable dishes that take about 10 minutes to prepare, with the ingredients either pre-cooked or already prepared for you. For example, one such dish I had received was called sweet potato noodles with creamy cashew alfredo sauce. You have the option to order a protein with it, but I chose not to. Anyway, I received the sauce already made (I just had to heat it up), and the sweet potato noodles already prepared for me. I just had to cook the noodles with olive oil in a pan, and then add the sauce to heat. Let me tell you, this was so delicious! However, it is expensive, as one serving of this cost $9. I can go buy a sweet potato for maybe $1, and make my own sauce, so I do not personally see myself ordering from Hungry Root often because of the expense. So what do I do instead to continue getting healthy meals like this? Well, I purchased a Paderno Vegetable Spiralizer and make my own noodles!
Paderno Vegetable Spiralizer
I received my vegetable spiralizer yesterday, and used it less than an hour ago to make my first dish. I had a sweet potato that I had been wanting to use, so I tested this bad boy out to see just how well it would work. This comes with 3 different blades so you can choose the thickness of your noodle, and it also comes with a blade that slices. After I set it up, read the directions, and tested it out, here are the results.
The vegetable spiralizer works wonderfully! I could not be happier with the results. Here is another picture of the spiraled sweet potato noodles.
Here is an even better close-up.
Do these not look fabulous? I cannot tell you enough how impressed I am with this kitchen tool.
I love eating clean and I absolutely love vegetables. A few years ago I began making spaghetti using spaghetti squash instead of starchy pasta noodles. Not only is the dish more healthy, but it tastes amazing as well. Since then, I have been continuing to eat healthy and eat clean, and this vegetable spiralizer is going to increase this goal for me tenfold. Well worth the investment.
