Spiralized Cabbage and Apple Waldorf Salad

Happy first day of October! To start this month off, please welcome Davida from The Healthy Maven!

Davida does it all – she blogs, she YouTubes, and she even podcasts! I’m excited to introduce Davida to all of you and am really pumped about this fall apple salad!

Davida is the creator behind The Healthy Maven, a multi-channel health and wellness platform dedicated to making healthy living easier and sustainable. Davida’s content is diverse, ranging from recipes, to travel, to self-care with a focus on how to live healthfully, rather than living for your health. When Davida isn’t in the kitchen, she is travelling, hiking with her puppy or trying out local restaurants in her home city of San Francisco.

From Davida:

Hello Inspiralizers! I’m Davida and I’m the blogger behind The Healthy Maven. Ali and I started our blogs around the same time and it’s been so cool to see how Inspiralized has grown and transformed. I’m sure I’m not the only one in awe of Ali and everything she has built! I’m so honored that she asked me to step in while she’s off on maternity leave.

If you’re unfamiliar with The Healthy Maven, then you’re in for my notoriously lengthy blog posts and heart dumps. Just kidding! I was told to keep it brief, which might come as a surprise to my readers but it is something that I’m capable of. Or at least I’ll try.

But unlike my long blog posts, I tend to keep my recipes short and sweet. Or in this case, savory. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found myself wanting to spend less and less time in the kitchen. I like quick, wholesome and delicious meals, but I also have a million other things I like to do so spending as little time in the kitchen is ideal. Recipes like this Spiralized Cabbage and Apple Waldorf Salad totally hit the mark.

It takes 10 minutes to prep, hacks your way through chopping the cabbage and apple (thank you Inspiralizer!) and is a delicious, plant-based meal. I personally like swapping in avocado mayonnaise for the regular stuff, but feel free to use mayonnaise or yogurt of your choice.

If you’re interesting in checking out more of my recipes, definitely head over to The Healthy Maven I’ve got plenty of recipes to choose from, but if cooking isn’t your jam, there’s something for everyone. I’m not just passionate about healthy eating, but believe strongly that life should be about living healthfully, not living for your health.

We chat exercise (or the occasional lack of exercise), natural skincare and pretty much everything in between. If you’re interested in expanding your understanding of health, be sure to check out my podcast, That’s So Maven.

Note: Hi, it’s Ali! I’m currently taking time off the blog for a maternity leave. During this time, I will be featuring some of the bloggers who have inspired me – they’ve provided spiralized recipes for all of you to enjoy during my absence. I’m honored to introduce them to you if you don’t know them already – and I hope you enjoy this new series!

If you have any questions regarding this recipe or anything Inspiralized related, you can feel free to leave a comment and Meaghan, our Director of Community & Brand will get back to you! You can also reach her via e-mail – she will escalate anything urgent to me, but as I said, I will be preparing for my little one’s arrival and then, of course, enjoying time with him and my husband. You can follow me on Instagram for personal updates – on @inspiralizedali and @inspiralized. Thank you for your understanding and patience as I begin this exciting new chapter of my life!

How to you optimally spiralize something with a core, like the apple?
Linda Cantwell says:
Go to "Get Started". It will tell you how to spiralize an apple, as well as everything else that can be spiralized.
Meaghan says:
The Inspiralizer will core the fruit for you. All you need to do is pick any small pieces of seed or core that might fall into the noodles. This video demonstrates: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehNZdbinBtk
Kathleen says:
I made this coleslaw over the weekend. Used a huge cabbage and pink lady apples. Made the dressing with my homemade yogurt. Oooohh, it was so yummy! There is just enough left over for supper tonight and then I will be making more. And more...

every night, I have this ritual where I scroll through the photos taken from the day on my phone and pick a favorite, posting it up on my stories with the hashtag #favoritepicoftheday. it’s a fun, sometimes therapeutic way to end and reflect on the day. as I was going through it tonight, the TV was on and I heard the news. ruth bader ginsburg passed away tonight. immediately, I felt sadness and a bit of worry. a worry of the implications politically of her passing. there’s so much at stake in this upcoming election and you all know I don’t get political on here very often, but seeing roma’s little smiley, silly face made me realize that if I’m not being a good role model and using this platform to make the world a better place for her, what kind of mother am I? so VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. 🇺🇸 and as the late RBG said, “real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” here’s my step. 💕 #rbg #ruthbaderginsburg ...

testing new recipes for my partnership with @cookunity and figured I'd share more about it, in case you're new here or missed the announcement earlier this summer (it's still summer, isn't that crazy?! I'm mentally in fall mode already 🍂☕)⁣
