This week’s healthy dinner plan has a little bit of a twist to it – literally! Each of the seven dinners on this week’s menu contain vegetables that have been spiralized!

If you’re new to spiralizing, let me give you a bit of advice – buy yourself an Inspiralizer! I previously owned three other spiralizing gadgets before purchasing my Inspiralizer, so I can tell you firsthand that all machines are NOT made equally! The Inspiralizer is by far the best spiralizer on the market with reinforced handles, a convenient twist-dial blade selector, enhanced safety features, and smaller core size for less waste. It also is the only spiralizer that firmly secures to my kitchen counter without any slipping or sliding (yay!). Check out this video to see for yourself…

With a delicious assortment of spiralized vegetable rice and noodles, this week’s dinners are high in flavor and nutrients, yet they’re easy on the waist line. Each of the meals this week come from Ali at Inspiralized, and if you like these, you’ll definitely want to check out the hundreds of free recipes that she shares on her site or in her cookbook! Chicken and Pesto Zucchini Fettucini with Tomatoes
