Over the past few months, I have made an effort to prepare healthier weeknight meals for my family that are still quick and easy to make. One example of a meal that can easily be made more nutritious is spaghetti. Replace traditional noodles with vegetable noodles made with just about any vegetable from zucchini to carrots. They cook quicker than a traditional noodle and won’t leave you with the same bloated feeling as flour noodles.
A good spiralizer is all you need to get started to create vegetable noodles. I had been using a simple peeler to create vegetable noodles before I received the amazing Breiftons 5 Blade Spiralizer. This spiralizer makes perfect noodles along with several other fruit/vegetable creations in an instant. It is super easy to use and sturdy so you can plan on using it time and time again! Listed below are further details and key features of this product:
*Reinforced, heavy-duty, stainless steel forward handle (instead of weak plastic forward handles that can break easily)

*Instructions and 3 exclusive Brieftons recipe ebooks included
One of my favorite vegetables to spiralize are sweet potatoes. With the Brieftons Spiralizer making sweet potato noodles is a breeze. Just load the sweet potato into the spiralizer and turn the crank to create beautiful long noodles. Below is a delicious recipe that is perfect for busy weeknights.
Sweet Potato Noodles with Kale and Garlicky Chickpeas
2 large sweet potatoes (spiralized into noodles)
2 cups packed kale
4 tbsp + 1/4 cup olive oil
2 cans of chickpeas
1 tsp garlic powder
