What is a spiralizer

A spiralizer converts a perfectly ordinary vegetable into long strands of a spaghetti like substance. The idea being that this vegetable spaghetti mixture is used in your meal instead of carb heavy food stuffs – such as pasta, rice and potatoes. Therefore raising your vegetable intake while reducing your carb intake. The photo above shows a selection of vegetables we spiralized – courgettes (perfect for a spiralizer), carrots and beetroot.
