Spiralizing: Google Search Trends

Spiralizing is new to the masses. There’s no question that the majority of the world doesn’t know about the spiralizer. If they did know about it, you’d be able to walk into Bed, Bath & Beyond and buy a spiralizer from KitchenAid, Cuisinart or OXO

One rainy Monday, I started to Google. I found some very interesting things and concluded that, as Bon Appetit predicted, spiralizing is a revolution… and it’s coming

Let’s take a look at search terms. Just the word “spiralizer” has been searched for drastically more (in 2013). Hmm.. wonder what caused that spike? 🙂

What’s even more interesting, is that the word “vegetable slicer” has not peaked as much as “spiralizer” but has been historically more common of a search term. This would lead me to believe that the “vegetable slicer” is now being used in the mainstream by consumers to cook and is being rebranded as a “spiralizer.” Vegetable slicers, remember, were originally created for restaurants as a garnish tool.

To show further evidence that the movement is happening, we can look at the search results for “zucchini noodles.” If we compare that to the search term volume for “spiralizer” it’s very similar. Coincidence? I think not

Now, the large dip in search volume for “zucchini noodles” is probably seasonal (as the dip is in the latter part of the graph for 2013). 

I’d venture to say that 2013 was the year for the spiralizer and zucchini noodles! Can’t wait to see what the search results look like in 2014

I've heard that our local PF Changs offers zucchini noodles. I know people who have tried them. I think if a major restaurant chain picks up a trend that will definitely fuel the fire.

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
