What is a Spiralizer and what do you do with it? A Spiralizer is a small double cone shaped utensil that spiralizes vegetables. Spiralizing is the art of turning vegetables and fruits into noodles. Spiralizing fruits and vegetables can help in weightloss as you incorporate more veggies and fruits into your diet. It is ecco friendly because you may just want to go to fresh fruit and vegetable markets in your local area.
Spaghetti noodles are 221 calories and 43 grams per serving, while zucchini noodles weigh in at 41.6 calories and 7.6 carbs. You can sautee the vegetable noodles in oil of choice or top with you favorite sauce, a spaghetti sauce or even a pesto.
I was given the opportunity to test the APlusChef Spiralizer from Tomoson with a free product and it is a great little tool. As you see in the picture above this is what you get. You get the spiralizer, a peeler, recipe booklet, cute little brush to aid in cleaning the spiralizer and a little black bag to keep it all in for storage.

How I prepared the zucchini for this review: I used an olive oil as that is my preferred oil to sautee with. You can also add any other vegetable to this dish like broccoli, cauliflower or shredded carrots. You can serve these vegetable 'noodles' as a side dish or a main meal.
I loved this product and will definitely be using it more as I am dieting and I love veggies! Thanks goes to Tomoson for providing the APlusChef Premium Spiral Slicer Bundle for review.
