Highly instagrammable, spiralizing is the latest craze in healthful eating. NOTE: this is my personal experience with a first attempt, results may vary.
  1. 1.
    Research and pick out a spiralizer.
    Paderno makes a good one with lots of cool features, I found this one 40% off (score!).
  2. 2.
    Search online for recipes. When in doubt, @goop delivers.
    Who doesn't want to emulate Gwyneth? I feel healthier already. http://goop.com/recipes/chicken-paillard-with-zucchini-noodles/
  3. 3.
    Select the vegetable of choice (I went with zucchini) and start spiralizing.
    It's actually kind of fun, until...
  4. 4.
    Try not to slice off an entire fingernail. 😱
    Highly painful, lots of blood, not recommended!
  5. 5.
    If you do, stanch the bleeding and purchase creepy-looking first aid product so you can finish cooking.
    Also, try not to think about what other activities these are used for.
  6. 6.
    Instagram final product & enjoy!
    Despite feeling fairly woozy, I enjoyed the flavors in the dish. And it even looks a little bit like the goop picture!

    Bonus step: realize you're still hungry.
    Sneak completely unhealthy, carb-filled dessert when no one is looking. 😳
