So... what do you do when you are the only vegan in the house?
Breakfast is never a problem, as I usually always have a Vega Green smoothie. Lunch is typically a salad, but dinner.... dilemma. After working all day and either having to go swim or do yoga after work, prep time is limited...
What do you recommend, especially when I am not preparing a large recipe (for my family) just for myself?
I clicked on the link and the pictures there reminded me of the difficulty of lining up the veggies in the optimal place so they would slice. The idea that there are so many pictures on this site telling you how to use the spiralizer in such detail suggests how challenging it is to use. I've had the Saladmaster machine and Cuisinart for years without difficulty. The SM is actually easier to use and clean up...you just remove the one attachment and throw it in the dishwasher or rinse it off quickly. No other parts to worry about. I don't sell either of these, but as a working mom of 3 who are now grown, I'm always looking for shortcuts. Investing in one of these, plus a Vitamix, have been so worth it. Just eat out a few times less a week, and they pay for themselves very quickly. Not to mention the taste of everything so fresh. Many people fall of their diet plans as they are making dinner, just wanting to eat food as soon as they get hungry, or too hungry. The SM machine is so fast that I can get that salad made in a hurry so I'm not tempted by what others may be eating or fixing.
Hey, Ken, if you find yourself needing some good old-fashioned comfort vegan food this fall/winter, go to Char's site and make her new recipe for vegan mac 'n cheese. If you use gluten-free panko bread crumbs, then the whole recipe is gluten-free too.
And since you end up with a whole 13x9x2" pan of it, it'll be good for days--that is if the rest of your family doesn't snake it out from under you. :D Oh my goodness it is SOOOOOO yummy.
