Cool cuisinista - spiral slicers

Been out for lunch and ordered a salad recently? Chances are it has gorgeous piles of spiralized beets or zucchini in it. The process of turning veggies and fruit into noodles, spiralizer can help you turn carb-heavy meals into lighter fare. For example using zucchini as a substitute for pasta, or sweet potato as the basis for a pizza instead of dough.
