Transform the way you and your family eat vegetables by using the spiralizer (also referred to as the zoodler). This unique kitchen tool is quick and easy to use, and can completely change the way your children think of vegetables.

We love spaghetti noodles! They’re fun to slurp up and enjoy, so why not do the same with some healthy veggies? All you have to do is peel or wash the vegetable of your choice, place it in the spiralizer, and manually twist the device so the vegetable comes out looking like a long spaghetti noodle. If this tool wasn’t great enough, you can purchase the spiralizer on Amazon for under $20 by clicking here! Not sure how to use a spiralizer? The video below can teach you!

Because there are multiple fun recipes and ideas to choose from when using this kitchen device, here are a few of our favorites!
