SUMMARY:
With the focus on turning vegetables into delicious meals, Inspiralize Everything takes everyday vegetables and spiralizes them into creative, healthy dinners. With an entire book devoted to using and cooking with the spiralizer, different vegetables are sorted alphabetically and coupled with clean-eating recipes. As the award winning blogger and author of Inspiralize, Ali Maffucci continues her quest for healthy, hearty and inspirational meals.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Again, another wonderful spiralizer cookbook packed full of beautiful photographs, easy to follow directions and palate-pleasing ideas for fresh and healthful fare. Enjoying this current cookbook even better than the author’s previous one, I especially like the included vegetables and their categorizations. The recipes using the spiralized vegetables are not only delectable, but also doable. With recipes such as Spicy Cabbage and Carrot Detox Soup, and Pear, Pomegranate and Roast Turkey Salad, as well as Sun-Dried Tomato, Chicken and Broccoli Pasta, there is sure to be something for everyone in an easily accessible manner.

SUMMARY:
inspiralizedClean eating takes on a whole new look in Inspiralized. Turning ordinary vegetables, and even fruits, into pasta-tasting meals full of nutrition, Ali Maffucci shares her skills, recipes, knowledge and inspiration. Using the newest cooking craze, spiraling, this creative cookbook takes healthy to a new form…

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Interested in this new technique, as well as referred to the book by a fellow-friend-blogger, Inspiralized makes eating healthy and clean a new venture, with room to personalize.   Though new to some of the ingredients and combinations, I am intrigued enough to try them.  Though skeptical of the pasta-tasting creations at first, I am now convinced of this trend, especially as a novel way to eat more vegetables. Full of recipes, pictures, personal stories and easily followed directions, this book may not be for everyone but is definitely worth a try. With a tool to spiralize, from expensive gadgets to affordable tools, the recipes are attainable, tweak-able, and actually quite enjoyable.
