First off, everyone calls me Ali (but Alissandra is my real name) True to my Italian American background, I love everything food – cooking, eating, reading food blogs, dining out, sharing my food pictures and entertaining friends. I’m definitely that obnoxious person at the table next to you Instagramming their meal before digging in. To me, nothing is better than having an unforgettable meal at a newly discovered restaurant…. especially when you live near one of the greatest culinary cities in the world: NEW YORK CITY.
Read this post and find out how I discovered the spiralizer in March of 2013 and how it completely changed my life.
When I’m not in the kitchen cooking for Inspiralized, you can find me traveling, reading cooking magazines, dreaming at a coffee shop, walking around NYC with my DSLR, exercising so that I can eat chocolate later, and spending time with my family in New Jersey. You can follow my personal journey over at @alissandramaffucci.
I have a passion for healthy eating and exercise and share my fitness journey through my healthy fit Instagram @GetInspiralized, where you can follow along to my weight loss story. Also, read this post about how I lost 25 pounds by eating Inspiralized and exercising! Through eating Inspiralized, consistent exercise and a balance, I truly believe that I am the healthiest version of myself and hope to inspire others to feel their best, always.

What are my hopes and dreams? To become a culinary star, of course! I want to bring spiralizing to the masses and show everyone that eating healthy is fun and doesn’t have to be boring or predictable. One day, I’d love to become involved with promoting nutritional education in schools through cooking and teaching.
On June 20, 2015, I married the love of my life, Lu (which I reference a lot on this blog!) You can check out a recap of our wedding here. Many of my recipes are designed for one or two to encourage couples to cook healthy meals together! Men do like vegetables…. especially when you trick them into eating them!
Oh, I almost forgot the most important part: On June 25, 2013, I quit my job in corporate America. That evening, I bought the Inspiralized.com domain and on the morning of June 26, 2013, I walked into a local Starbucks and started blogging! I’m taking a stab at pursuing my dreams. Thanks for taking part in my journey….
I would love to hear from you. I’m always available at ali(at)inspiralized(dot)com. Currently, I live in Jersey City, NJ.
As my mother has always told me, treat others as you would like to be treated.
Can’t wait to hear from you!
