Spiralizing vegetables are a fun way to increase your vegetable intake and satisfy your cravings for pastas. You can find inexpensive hand spiralizers that are very easy to use. If you’re committed to the veggie noodle movement, there are counter-top varieties that work well too. Don’t have the time to spiralize? Many super markets sell pre-spiralized vegetables in their produce departments.
