We eat a LOT of vegetables at my house. They are really one of the few perfect foods out there – they taste good, they are chock full of nutrients, and they are so versatile. They complement virtually any other food, and they are an excellent meal all by themselves. The ONLY problem with eating a lot of vegetables is that you eventually run out of appealing and interesting ways to prepare them, especially when you have young children. That’s why I was thrilled to try out The Very Healthy Spiral Slicer by Varietyland. It added a whole new level of fun and health to our meals.
The Very Healthy Spiral Slicer by Varietyland is a great addition to my kitchen. I love the design; it fits comfortably in my hand, and is compact enough that I can store it much more easily than any food processor. Even though it is compact, it is very well-made and will last a long time. I love that there are no batteries to replace – I can’t tell you how many tools go by the wayside for want of a couple of batteries! Finally, the heart of the Very Healthy Spiral Slicer is the blade system; there are two different size blades for two different widths of “veggie noodles,” and the blades are made of 100% Japanese steel. They won’t rust, break or dull. Varietyland is so sure that their product will last that they offer a 100% lifetime guarantee. And as far as cleanup – Varietyland makes that a breeze as well. They include a specially designed brush that allows you to clean the unit safely and easily.
Now that you have met The Very Healthy Spiral Slicer, let me tell you about what it does, because it does a lot. You can this vegetable spiralizer to replace your pasta maker AND your julienne peeler. It can be used for soft, moist vegetables like cucumbers, or for more firm vegetables like zucchini and carrots. The spiral slicer is so easy to operate – you simply select the blade size that is appropriate for your vegetable and the size noodle that you want, and you twist it into the blade like a pencil sharpener. There is a safety cap that you can use to protect your fingers once you have twisted most of the length of the vegetable into the spiral slicer. Then, voilà! You have veggie noodles.
So what do you do with your veggie noodles? Anything you want. They go great on salads, and they add cool color and shape to make any vegetable dish more appealing. You can replace pasta with these noodles, and even if your kids are picky eaters, you will be able to get away with it. My kids love Zoodles – zucchini noodles. Even though they are just zucchini, The Very Healthy Spiral Slicer gives them a different texture and makes them more fun to eat. And it is kind of decadent to be able to eat zucchini spaghetti! Your order also comes with a recipe book with 20 spiral slicer recipes, so you can add new favorites to your table.
If you are looking for a way to jazz up your everyday vegetables, if you are looking for a way to stick to a gluten free or paleo diet, or if you just want to add color and style to the dishes you bring to parties and barbecues, I definitely recommend The Very Healthy Spiral Slicer by Varietyland.
