Video: How to Pick the Best Butternut Squash for Spiralizing + My Save The Dates from Minted!

Video: How to Pick the Best Carrots for Spiralizing

My Save The Dates from Minted! -

Another Thursday, another new video on the Inspiralized YouTube channel!

Last week, we talked about how to pick the best vegetables for spiralizing and today, we’re getting specific, with butternut squash.

I get a lot of e-mails about butternut squash – some find it tough to spiralize and I think that’s mainly because of the size and shape butternut squashes they’re using.

With this video, I’ll help you pick the best butternut squash for the spiralizer.

Next, week, I’ll be talking carrots!

The tips described in the video are in the description of the video and also, here ya go:

Tip #1: Pick a squash with the smallest, bulbous bottom as possible.
Tip #2: Opt for a medium-sized butternut squash, about 3-3.5” diameter.
Tip #3: Try to find a butternut squash with a long, tubular part for optimal noodle-yielding potential!

My hubs and I did photo postcards for our save the date and thank notes! I, unfortunately, did not discover Minted until after the occasion, but they have such great stuff! Would love to use them for an upcoming event. Fingers crossed :)

Might just be my personal preference or my less-than-optimum-hearing, but losing the music during the monologue would be helpful to focusing on and understanding what you're saying. Good at the intro and exit, but not necessary for the content. THANKS for listening and keep up the great work. dv

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?! 🤔⁣
