Inspiralized by Ali Maffucci
From the publisher:
On her wildly popular blog, Inspiralized, Ali Maffucci is revolutionizing healthy eating. Whether you’re low-carb, gluten-free, Paleo, or raw, you don’t have to give up the foods you love. Inspiralized shows you how to transform more than 20 vegetables and fruits into delicious meals that look and taste just like your favorite indulgent originals. Zucchini turns into pesto spaghetti; jicama becomes shoestring fries; sweet potatoes lay the foundation for fried rice; plantains transform into “tortillas” for huevos rancheros.
Ali’s recipes for breakfast, snacks, appetizers, sandwiches, soups, salads, casseroles, rices, pastas, and even desserts are easy to follow, hard to mess up, healthful, and completely fresh and flavorful. Best of all, she tells you how to customize them for whatever vegetables you have on hand and whatever your personal goal may be—losing weight, following a healthier lifestyle, or simply making easy meals at home.
I have heard about this spiralized meal idea and I wanted to see what it was all about. It was exciting to look through this recipe book and see all these idea for meals that you could eat that would be so healthy and yet sounded delicious.
The book was careful to introduce how to use the spiralizer and it also included how to tell if the recipe was going to be difficult or easy to make.
The variety of foods that were included in this were pretty amazing. At first I was just thinking pastas, because of what I had seen, but there was so much more! Muffins, waffles, pasta, soups, salads, rice, and on and on! This has a lot to offer.
Some recipes could be made without the spirlizer but it looked prettier with the spirlizer. Overall, this book looks great.
I received this book free from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.
