As a parent of one vegan daughter, a vegetarian son, a husband who loves to eat meat, and me trying to just eat clean and healthy, it is difficult to find a constant supply of recipes and cookbooks that will make everyone in my family happy. On top of that, some cookbooks either need crazy ingredients, or outlandish tools, that are expensive and take away space, I frankly don’t have.
But, spiralizers are a wonderful way to add veggies to meat eater meals, as well as create complete healthy, clean and vegan meals with not much effort.
That is also why I love Zoodles – Spiralizer Cookbook by Sonnet Lauberth because it has something for all of my picky eaters. There are the typical recipes that we usually associate with spiralizers – vegan or vegetarian in variety, but there are also those recipes where meat-eaters get their turn, while still staying healthy.
The detail with which the Author depicted how to best choose a spiralizer, which veggies work well and some additional information that adds health and value to your meals impressed me. When I purchase cookbooks I want more than just a mere list of recipes, I want direction, inspiration, and instructions that can give me the tools I need to create my own spin on recipes, not necessarily found in that particular book. Zoodles has done exactly that, which is why I am very happy with it.
On top of that, Zoodles is beautifully formatted and visually pretty, which is absolutely a plus for me when it comes to cookbooks.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review
