Briefton's Spiralizer makes the best Zucchini Noodles

Image
      Living the raw food life for six weeks now.   The meal I eat the most is zucchini noodles with a savory sauce.   Zucchini noodles is a staple in the raw food diet.   They are easy to make and very tasty.   To create the best noodles you will need a spiralizer.   I have used two different kinds and like them both equally. The first spiralizer I recommend is the Brieftons 5 blade .   It is very versatile and even has a recipe book!   There are so many cuts available with the different blades to experiment and make great food!   The second spiralizer I recommend is very small and convenient to take everywhere.   It is the Veggetti Vegetable Cutter .   It only makes noodles, in two sizes. To eat and be successful in the raw food lifestyle you have to find at least nine meals that are easy to prepare that you really like.   Using a spiralizer helps to make fresh noodles quickly, which is important.
