For a while I was on a ‘spiralizing spree’ after receiving my new spiralizer for the first time. I wanted to curl everything from cucumbers, pumpkins, beets, apples, zucchini, potatoes, radish, you get the picture..
Now, I spiralize my veggies at least once a week – I enjoy swopping zucchini noodles for pasta, carrots to add to a salad, potatoes for healthy baked ‘French fries’ to name a few. Eating more raw food has lots of benefits for your skin, hair and overall health. If you`re looking into gaining energy – adding more raw fruits and vegetables to your diet will help you drastically.
I hear a lot of people counting calories, which is not always ideal. Do you think a calorie is a calorie? In other words, do you think 1 apple that contains 100 calories is equal to a 100 calorie cookie bag? Yes, calorie amount is the same but nutritional value clearly is not. The energy, vitamins, nutrients and all the benefits you get from organic fresh produce are FAR more beneficial than anything that has been made in a factory.
