As you start your weight loss journey or journey to eating better, you are probably busy looking for healthy recipes. Many of these recipes are made with vegetables, including mock pasta. Mock pasta looks similar to regular white or brown pasta, but it is actually made from vegetables you have spiralized. This is done with a spiral slicer appliance or tool, also called a spiralizer. You can usually spiralize vegetables like zucchini, squash, and carrots. The first thing you need to do is get a really good cookbook, such as the Inspiralized cookbook.
The Inspiralized cookbook was written by Ali Maffucci, who is one of the pioneers in spiralizing vegetables. This is the ultimate healthy cookbook that teaches this particular technique of turning regular pasta meals into ones that are lower in fat, healthier, and include a lot more good nutrients.
One of the main reasons people like to spiralize their vegetables is because they are able to turn meals into a low-carb version. If you switch to a low-carb diet, you often miss out on your spaghetti and Fettuccini Alfredo, but with spiralizing vegetables, you get a healthier version of pasta noodles that are also a lot lower in carbohydrates. Plus, this is a great way to eat more veggies at the same time. Keep in mind that other diets also work good with the spiralizer recipes in this cookbook, including if you are on the Paleo or Keto diet, clean eating, whole foods, or raw food diet. It also provides pasta that is gluten-free, another big benefit.
With this healthy cookbook, you are getting recipes for spiralized dishes, as well as some helpful tips and techniques along the way. It teaches you that there are more than 20 vegetables you can spiralize for the dishes. Most people think that they can only spiralize zucchini and squash, but you can actually do this with many vegetables, including tomatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, carrots, and many others. The Inspiralized cookbook also shows you how to use a spiralizer for things like shoestring fries and many other variations on your favorite recipes.
You will find recipes for just about every meal of the day, including breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes, and things like pasta, desserts, casseroles, salads, soups, and rice dishes. There are also lots of healthy snack ideas in this book. It is good for those who are trying to get healthy or have a goal of losing weight.
There are very few drawbacks to this cookbook, aside from the fact that some recipes require a special type of spiralizer tool. It is easy to follow and includes some delicious recipes to try out.
