Title: Inspiralized: Turn Vegetables into Healthy, Creative, Satisfying Meals

Author: Ali Maffucci

About the Book:The definitive cookbook for using a spiralizer: the kitchen gadget that turns vegetables and fruits into imaginative, low-carb dishes.

On her wildly popular blog, Inspiralized, Ali Maffucci is revolutionizing healthy eating. Whether you’re low-carb, gluten-free, Paleo, or raw, you don’t have to give up the foods you love. Inspiralized shows you how to transform more than 20 vegetables and fruits into delicious meals that look and taste just like your favorite indulgent originals. Zucchini turns into pesto spaghetti; jicama becomes shoestring fries; sweet potatoes lay the foundation for fried rice; plantains transform into “tortillas” for huevos rancheros.

Ali’s recipes for breakfast, snacks, appetizers, sandwiches, soups, salads, casseroles, rices, pastas, and even desserts are easy to follow, hard to mess up, healthful, and completely fresh and flavorful. Best of all, she tells you how to customize them for whatever vegetables you have on hand and whatever your personal goal may be—losing weight, following a healthier lifestyle, or simply making easy meals at home.”

super friendly resource book for foodies everywhere. I absolutely loved it!

What made this book so incredible, in my opinion, was the fact that it was immediately appealing in the visual sense, it provided such a vast repertoire of food choices, and it gave a treasure trove of information related to health benefits and nutritional value in regard to the specified foods.

The author did a magnificent job of keeping the content relevant and fun. Additionally, I loved her voice and her conversational tone. I felt like I wanted to go on a food adventure with her.

  3. Okay…you were right! An excellent book on clean and healthy eating with lots of room to personalize! Though my family is not quite sold on the recipes yet…I am inspired and quite certain they will come to appreciate and enjoy them (as I am the only chef in the house, after-all)! Thanks for sharing your review, recommending this book and having a positive impact on my healthy lifestyle!

    • I’m so glad you liked it! It really is a fabulous resource. I know you (and your family) will have so much fun discovering the yummy goodness. 😉 Here’s to your health!

    • This book is honestly one of the best I have come across in terms of simple meals. As a challenged “chef” myself, I need beyond easy when it comes to food. Inspiralized is a fun, food-wise, encouraging book. I think the quickest meal took 15 minutes to prepare and the longest meal prep/cook time was like one hour and five minutes due to baking requirements.I think you will totally love it!
