Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Slicer

I'm a total lover of spaghetti. I love how it looks, how it grabs on to sauce, and how great it tastes when mixed with grilled chicken of ground beef. But, I don't love the carbs in it. So I've been trying to find ways to cook and eat it without having to pack on the extra pounds. Especially since the summer is just around the corner and I want to lose the extra pudge that I packed on in this surprisingly cold SoCal winter.

On came Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Slicer. I never gave any of these a try before because they just never looked like they were sturdy enough to actually work correctly. I was pleasantly surprised with this one though because the edges were sharp (be careful!), it was easy to use, and my carrots and zucchini didn't turn into mush when I attempted to use it.

I was able to make a delicious meal with zucchini pasta recently and was very pleased with the results. The zucchini kept it's crunch which is something I was always worried about because I assumed it would get soggy really fast.

Now I'm excited to make other types of "pasta" to continue on my low carb journey!
