Meal Prep Spiralizer Recipes
The first spiralizers hit the market around 2014, and since then have quickly become a favorite kitchen tool for wizards and alternative-eaters alike. If you’ve never used one before, a spiralizer is a handy kitchen contraption that uses rotating circular blades to turn your favorite fruits and vegetables into noodles, shreds, and ribbons. Think noodles made from zucchini, paper-thin strands made from carrots, and delicately shredded apples or sweet potatoes pressed into perfect fritters and muffins. Truly any fruit or vegetable with a relatively sturdy body can be spiralized. A few of our favorite options are sweet potatoes, zucchini, carrots, apples, cucumbers, parsnips, and daikon. But not all of these recipes are created equally, so we put together the best spiralizer recipes for meal prepping — just for you!
Why We Love Spiralizers:
We love spiralizers because they provide a surefire way to enjoy a lightened version of a huge range of dishes. They’re also probably most loved as a means to turn almost any recipe into paleo and/or gluten-free friendly. Instead of those made from wheat, zucchini noodles allow for a significantly lower caloric intake, plus the added benefit of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Potassium, and fiber. Instead of digestive-slowing grains and flours in your waffles or fritters, sweet potatoes boast a much richer vitamin-heavy nutritional profile. Think about getting your daily needs of Vitamins A and C, all from swapping one single ingredient into your favorite breakfast dish or elevated lunch. Cooking a spiralizer recipe basically ensures that you’re getting at least one extra serving of vegetables in each portion, all without compromising flavor or convenience. Who doesn’t want that?
