We’re joining the #30daysInspiralized Instagram contest from Ali Maffucci over at www.inspiralized.com ! I bought a Paderno Tri-Blade Spiral Vegetable Slicer for myself after visiting her awesome website and falling in love with turning veggies into NOODLES ! SO FUN! I might have already shared my new passion upon chatting with you about trying to cut carbs, increase veggies etc. I’ve had some ‘fall off the wagon’ moments but overall I seem to be maintaining some weight loss. The recipes are AMAZINGLY good and frankly, I don’t miss pasta at all, nor the calories. She has a new cookbook out – which I’d love to win….. but I’ll probably buy it eventually anyway. Plus, she tweaked the spiralizer design and is selling her own version which is supposed to be even better.
So here we go on the 30 day mission!! I’ll post links etc. if the recipes are not my own. Hope you join me!
