The Zoodle Slicer – your vegetables have never been this fancy

Zoodle Slicer

When you’re trying to lose some weight, you have to learn to curb cravings, cut back on calories, and most of all, say goodbye to some overindulging. If you look at how many calories you’re actually supposed to eat in a day, the types of things you should be eating, and the frequency with which you should be eating them, it seems a touch overwhelming.

Really the trick is to fool your body and mind into thinking you’re getting all the stuff you really want, but in a more “healthy” form. If you want chocolate, go for the darkest version you can find, and coffee or tea lovers have to learn to let go of the copious amounts of sugar. When it comes to breads and pastas it’s a lot harder, but with this Zoodle Slicer you can make yourself think you’re just eating a veggie pasta, since it’s made out of actual vegetables.

The point of this vegetable spiral slicer is to make things like zucchini noodle pasta and carrot spirals (for those that hate the crunch). You can use this with zucchini, cucumber, turnips, sweet potatoes and more, but don’t be fooled into thinking they’ll taste much different than what they are. It’ll be up to you to dress them up appropriately and make them worth eating. It’s made out of stainless steel and can be tossed in the dishwasher when you’re done with it. While it will get backed up here and there, it does come with a brush to help you sort out that problem. This is a $7.99 purchase that will take a little planning to integrate into your meal preparation, but it’s likely something that will change your eating habits for the better.
