The Best Beginner Recipes for the Spiralizer

Ali this is so incredibly perfect timing. I just bought an inspiralizer a few weeks ago and didn't even know where to start! Jen Bagels to Broccoli: This is such great timing! My spiralizer literally arrived last night and I was just thinking about what recipes to try first. If a little nervous - I'm most afraid of slicing my fingers off than anything else: September 4, at I spiral used a firm peach and half an apple. Sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon.

Tasty for afternoon snack! May 17, at 6: Keep pastas and cheeses nice and stout texture-wise. Gives the noodles a more slippery feel and they don't need to cook as much. May 18, at 2: You do add the noodles at the last minute, just to warm! Half the point of zucchini noodles is that they're easy and quick, so I don't suggest salting the noodles - plus, I find that doing this causes the noodles to wilt and become lifeless and soggy.

But if it works for you, that's great! May 23, at 5: Leslie - Definitely Not Martha: May 17, at 8: Your enthusiasm has totally converted me to spiralizing! I like my zucchini noodles raw, but mostly because I'm lazy and still cook regular pasta for the rest of my family. May 21, at 8: June 17, at 6: I am so happy I discovered this site.

I can't find that recipe could you direct me to where I can find it in the recipes link?

June 19, at 5: Under the Recipe link; go 'by vegetable' and then zucchini. July 12, at Great way to start beginners off on the Spiralizer experience, it's an addiction, but a good addiction: August 17, at 6: I just bought my first Spiralizer and have been reading through to see where to start. My kids are good eaters and not overly picky, but they don't like zucchini. Any suggestions where to start other than zucchini? May 14, at 5: August 25, at 5: Since buying my Spiralizer, most of my veg has been noodled.

January 28, at March 19, at Thanks for sharing these recipes, I just bought myself a spiralizer yesterday and am so excited to try these March 21, at For Mother's Day I received a the spiralizer and your cookbook.

I made my first recipe 'Jicama-stuffed Peppers with Asiago' to much success. My problem is carrots. I love carrots, but my local grocery stores do not carry wide enough carrots. Have you noticed too, that over the last several years carrots have gotten slimmer?

It's very disappointing, because your cookbook has several carrot recipes that sound terrific. June 30, at Your page is such a great resource! After reading all the stories, I realize how serious this really is. Wish I knew this before and was able to communicate it to him long before the rupture. Woulda, shoulda, coulda never changed the course of history…. Harlem USA…You will be missed terribly and you are loved! Wednesday we brought her to the ER due to severe stomach cramps… diagnosis was stomach flu and specifically not appendicitis.

From Tuesday until Friday she is laid out on the couch unable move from extreme pain and I have to carry her to the rest room where she can throw up and have diarrhea.

It kills me now looking back at what she endured. So on Friday we take her to a different doctor and just like the other stories on here: IV, CT scan and they find the ruptured appendix. This is my little girl! I just hope all goes well from here on out. It started first though, with me burping uncontrollably to a point where I was feeling frustrated and tired. Overall it was a scary incident cause the tremendous pain, diagnosis and surgery were all done under 24 hours.

It all goes o show how fast things change. So good luck to all, and stay safe. I found this site looking up this problem because my doctor told me after pressing down on that part of my stomach, that if it started hurting esp. Hard to believe you can be taken away from your family suddenly for something that many of us -and certainly i, would have ignored as something else. I was there for something else but i guess he noticed it was inflamed.

My mom and i have decided to go in early tomorrow. Hope i get taken care and everything goes well. My son is 33yrs old and like most of you suffered with serious stomach pain.

He thought the pain was stomach poisoning and treated the simptoms with various over the counter medications. His CT Scan showed his appendics was intact. When he was finally taken to surgery at After surgery we were informed the appendix had burst. I am reading this blog to find out what we can expect in the days to come. I am so thankful my wonderful son is alive and doing better by the hour. From this point forward I will trust my Lord and Savior that my son will recover and lead a productive full life.

Prayers and best wishes to you all. I was taken to the ER and was told I had a blockage in my left kidney. They put stints in it and performed surgery. Two weeks after all of that with my kidney, I started to feel sick. My stomach got HUGE! I went to the ER again and they asked me if I was pregnant!! They took CT scans and found out my appendix has ruptured 5 days ago and it was encapsulated. The anti-biotics I was on from my kidney surgery saved me.

My appendix is still in me. Should I go to a different doctor for a different opinion or is it safer to keep my appendix in me? Will it rupture again? Thank you and God Bless. I woud say go to a different doctor.

I went through the same thing a couple years ago, but mine was ruptured for two weeks and they did have to cut me open. I thought I had the flu. After a week straight of vomiting I went to a walk in clinic. They said it was the flu and sent me home! The next day I was half dead and had a fever of a hundred and four. Finally, at 6 pm they got me into surgery, saying it would only be an hour to an hour and a half, it ended up being almost four hours.

I had an abcess the size of a grapefruit in my abdomen, pertonitis infection of the lining of the stomach , and was septic. I was in the hospital for eleven days. I had early pnumonia and had to have a tube inserted through my nose to my stomach to get rid of all the nasty infection. The surgeon said its amazing I lived. A lot of people have gone through so much pain, I hope you all are able to figure out your health problems.

I was had pain through out my stomach and due to this I didnt just feel pain on my side. At first i thought it was gas pain or food posioning. I took some tums and tried to go to sleep. Then i started vomiting. The pain would not go away and then increased as the night went on.

I vomitted about three times during the day. I finally could not take the constant annoying pain and woke my husband. I went to the er at 12 midnight. After being seen and CT scan was done — by this time it was 3: I just had surgery on saturday.

I prayed that my appendix didnt rupture because i knew the comlications that would follow. Good news after surgery I asked my husband if it prayer ruptured and he said no. I was so happy. The power of prayer does work. I pray that you all get better soon and have a speedy recovery. Between Mar and Early Sep the pain got so bad I just wanted to die as the doctors just kept ignoring me as if I was making it up.

Mine was inflammed on a friday, burst sunday and I was unaware of this for 5 days.. Consider yourself lucky I Had my belly opened and cleaned.. He was on IV antibiotics 4 days then avelox 3 weeks. Only drained it once. We have decided not to have an internal appendectomy since appendix likely gone anyway and statistics show non surgical conservative treatment is typically enough in a case such as his where rupture and pockets of abecess occurred.

He is 10 weeks since he went into the hospital and no issues. Sometimes he feels some tightness down there but it is very minor and is probably his organs getting back to their normal position after the plastering effect he had with the walled off condition. I walked around with a burst apendix for a good 2 weeks. Doctors thought i was lying. I was 15 so i didnt really realise how bad it actually was until now.

Im only looking into it because of a paper im writting for my uni course. I too had a similar experience when I was 9 years old. All the same pain, misdiagnosed intestinal flu, tubes in my stomach, etc. I had the Last Rites performed over me by a sympathic priest in the Catholic hospital I was in.

I am not Catholic. This was in No cat scans, etc. A year later I had to have repairative surgery for torn stitches in my abdomen from the rotted tissue. I was really against drs.

I told them I had had a kidney infection before and this was nothing like one. A week later, a chiroprater finally took an X-Ray and saw a colon blockage. I had a colonic and began throwing up feces. I was rushed across town to a specialist and was operated on within the hour on a Friday afternoon. I had scar tissue grown around my colon that was blocking it.

If you have had abdomenal surgery and ever, EVER have more pain like mentioned-scream as loud as you can to the drs!!

I went to was the same one that had operated on me as a child and I told everyone else of my previous surgery, to no avail. I owe the successful births all at home-I really, really do not like drs and hospitals of my 5 children to the fact that I have been dilagent in my pursued of natural and alternative medicine and lifestyle. Peach and wellness to you all. I am wondering if you are still around or if anyone is still around who might share some experience on recovery process and time.

I dont know if my experience is unique or not, but I had a burst appendix and they did NOT operate. Instead they hooked me to an IV and gave me loads of antibiotics and sent me home after 3 days with a bunch of prescriptions and told me to call and setup an appointment for next month. They gave me no kind of instructions, such as whether I should go to school the next day, work, drive, anything. Is it typical to leave the hospital with the appendix still intact, on prescription narcotics, and your daily routine goes back to normal the next day?

I too suffered a ruptured appendix in and just now looked it up out of curiosity, and i am shocked to read how severe it is that once ruptured it could be fatal in hours!

Fortunatley mine wa only ruptured for about 8 hours! I was in 7th grade and really hate missing school! But it was a saturday when i started feeling kind of odd i just hurt in my abdomen and just prefered to lay down. Then on sunday i spent the day taking warm baths, throwing up and enduring pain my mom thought was the flu as it was early december and flu season.

Then the pain became much worse on monday and i stayed home from school sick. The earliest they were able to get an appointment was later in the day. Well by the time my appointment came i was no longer in pain but my parents took me in anyway!

Well good thing they did at the clinic they took urine sample and various other test and said it was very lokley my appendix had ruptured and i should be taken to a hospital immediatly! So my parents and i rushe to the hospotal and i drank the clear, chalky,nasty substance that is berrium which helps with tje cat scans on the way to the hospital!

While me having motion sickness struggled with the task of drinking the berrium. So by the time we were to the hospital i felt very sick. When i got there i was attached to an iv and given more berrium.

I was finally able to go in for the cat scan and sure enough my appensix had rupture and they called in the surrgeon who specified in this for an emergency appendectimy spelling? I had the 3 small incisions. So for the 1st day i was only allowed to eat ice chips because it had ruptured and i still had extremly high blood counts and they were scared that perhaps their could still be some remains of what had ruptured.

After my ice doet i was put on a liquid diet and ecentually eased to solid foods. Even though my blood counts were still high they released me and i just had to come visit the surgeon at his office lile once or twice a week until my blood counts were to normal, if they were not normal in weeks i would have to go in for a second surgery to remove what remained. Well in about a week- a week and a half my blopd counts were to normal and i was clear, just in time for christmas!

I then was unable to do phyaical activity until january! And my infected incision took a while to heal but other than that have been clear of side effect or complications since!

So as many others have said, do not ignor the Pain it only can make it worse. I have had similar experiences with walking around with a ruptured appendix for possibly a couple weeks before it was finally figured out what was happening. It started with what I thought was an irritable bowel thing on a Friday evening. Bad stomach cramps and just a lot of bowel movements. Then it moved to really bad diarrhea.

By the end of the weekend, I found myself with the worst GI flu I had ever had. Things got better, for awhile at least. During a CAT scan for something else unrelated to another medical problem I was working through, a mass was found in my pelvis, thought to maybe be cancer. I was lined up quickly with surgery. When they went in, expecting to maybe find a large ovarian tumor, they found a large abscess containing the remainder of the infection.

My body had walled off the worst of it to keep the infection from spilling into me and likely saving my life. Needless to say, I was relieved to find out no cancer when I woke up in the recovery room, but also shocked to hear they found a ruptured appendix.

As I have since learned, these abscesses do form sometimes after things rupture, and had I not had the cat scan for the other thing, eventually that would have burst and perhaps taken my life. I am now 2 weeks post surgery after 8 days in the hospital and on the mend. I wanted to say that sometimes these things we are told present in a certain way pain on the right lower side, vomiting, etc. It even fooled my pcp that did a full exam of me when the problems began.

I hope everyone here on this site is doing better and let your friends and family know what happened to you so they can be aware that a ruptured appendix can be different for everyone.
