All spiralizers are NOT created equal!! I kept hearing about people spiralizing potatoes and carrots and I wondered how?!

My spiralizer would shred the base end of the vegetable on the spinning dial full of teeth used to stabilize the vegetable and push it through the blades.

I ended up getting another brand of spiralizer. The Finest Chefs brand. Immediately I noticed that the teeth on the spinning dial looked longer. So I measured!

The Finest Chefs spiralizer has 5/16ths of an inch long teeth while the other has only 1/4th of an inch long teeth.

So I just tested it on potatoes and carrots. Success!!!! Red potatoes went so easy, sweet potatoes were tougher, but they went through! Carrots were easier than the sweet potatoes!!! I’m excited!!

TASTY CURLS – I took the curls and dipped them in a special mixture before putting them in the dehydrator.  Here’s the secret sauce – nutritional yeast, flaxseed oil (unfiltered coldpressed), apple cider vinegar, himalayan sea salt, cayenne, onion powder, garlic powder, and add just enough water to make it pasty.

WARM BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP – 1 butternut squash (skin and seeds too), the leftover spiralizing weenies from the carrots and potatoes, turmeric, cinnamon, onion powder, garlic powder, and himalayan sea salt.  Vitamix for 2 minutes.  I topped it with some Tasty Curls.

TASTY CURLS – Boyfriend approved.  He says they taste like Cheese Its.  (what are those??  Kidding…)

  1. I’ve got a bunch of questions, you don’t have to answer but I’d be happy if you did! 😀

    What do you think of oats? Do you eat anything like oatmeal? (in your case, soaked oat with fruit/nut milk?)

    Here in Sweden we have some sort of awakening – more people got critical to milk after the Dairy lobby scandal, and more and more are making/buying oat/grain/nut milk. Do you drink “milks”?

    Just discovered how to make oat milk at home: 1 1/3 cup of oats, 6 1/2 cup of water, a pinch of salt(or anything else for flavour, like cardamom or cinnamon) and 3 tablespoons of oil (like flax seed oil or something). Mix, pour through a fine cloth and drink! (my question here is: do you make/drink veggie/nut beverages? do you juice or prefer solid foods?)

    Also, I study biomedicine to become a scientist (sounds naive, I know) and hearing about what you’ve been through gave me an interest in MS pathology and central nervous system inflammatory mechanisms (long word!). I hope that you’ll never get a relapse again. Stay well and have a lovely day! 😀

      No oats. No grains. Although I did have some raw sprouted quinoa on a raw vegan dish at a local vegan restaurant. Just a sprinkle though. I’d like to make my own nut milks, but it’s something that I will need to make time to learn to do.

      Nope, but I’d love to learn to make raw nut milks. Banana is pretty “milky” in smoothies.

      I do drink fresh juices, smoothies, and solid food! My preference is to always change it up because I don’t like doing the same thing twice. This is also why I’m terrible at creating recipes. I just get in the zone and don’t write down my ingredients as I go. It’s a lucky day if I remember to log my steps. It’s usually an afterthought when I have a successful creation, “Crap! I didn’t write it down!” Not that I would recreate the exact same thing ever again. That’s boring to me. I would log it to share it mainly. I’m always changing and inventing/reinventing.

      VERY COOL. Please tell me everything you discover!! Everything I’ve read tells me that scientists and doctors don’t know anything about MS other than observing the deterioration of the brain with no real patterns as to cause or risk factors. I have to pretend that it’s not really a part of me sometimes just so I don’t get too freaked out.
