When I first saw gadgets that could transform veggies into pasta, I was intrigued. Being a Type 1 diabetic, carbohydrates are not always the best thing. Traditional pasta is loaded with carbs and I LOVE pasta! And since I am also trying to lose
weight, I know that skipping the carbs is the best thing for that. The less carbs, the less insulin I need to take and insulin is a weight gaining hormone.
Anyway, I figured one of these gadgets would be perfect in my quest for a healthier me without skipping all of the foods I love. I received an opportunity from Yanu to try their Vegetizer and I jumped on that the way I jump on lasagna.
When it arrived, I squealed with delight. The box has a wonderful vintage 1950s-ish ad woman on it. And I am becoming more and more intrigued with that time period. The box was small and I was curious as to how it could be so small. Surely there must be gears and mechanical parts to this thing. But, it is really simple. It works just like a pencil sharpener.
So far, I have used it on carrots, sweet potatoes and squash. The carrots are a little annoying to shred - like too small of a pencil in a sharpener. And the sweet potato I used had to be trimmed a little in order to fit, but all in all, the Vegetizer made some wonderful veggie pasta! The vegetable noodles had a delightful crunch after I topped them with some chicken and pasta sauce.
The Vegetizer is wonderful and so easy to use! I highly recommend it! Even if you are not looking to cut carbs, lose weight or get healthier, still try it for something different to eat.
