According to British Vogue’s lifestyle guru Calgary Avansino, health conscious foodies should swap carb laden pastas and spaghettis for a vegetable alternative.

With the help of a Spiralizer, vegetables can be turned into spaghetti, linguine, noodles, capellini and spirals.

This means that traditionally calorific dishes can become free from refined wheat and gluten, while the nutritional value is significantly boosted.

The appliance works best with thick vegetables such as butternut squash, sweet potato, beets, courgettes, carrots, cucumber and celeriac and yellow squash work best.

Prep time is minimal - simply wash and peel the vegetables and then place them through the gadget.

If you want to give it a twirl, you can purchase online via sites such as Juice Land, Juicers.ie or Amazon.
