After days of holiday indulgence, sometimes we crave a healthy bowl of veggies. But that doesn’t mean our meal has to be boring or bland. Put aside the steamed sprouts and salad for something a little cozier: veggie noodles.

A spiralizer is the tool you’ll need to turn beets, squash, zucchini and even fruits into noodles. And we’ve found the perfect one for any aspiring cook. Even better, it’s super cheap and super easy to use.

Meet the Paderno Tri-Blade Spiral Vegetable slicer ($40). It ships fully assembled, so the only thing left for you to do is screw in the crank handle and secure it to the tabletop. Then get cranking, and get ready for some delicious (and super healthy) dinner.

The Paderno finds the sweet spot between price — some spiralizers can cost over $500 — and ease of use. No wrist cramps and no strain on your wallet means you can rest easy and enjoy the process.

Perfect al dente noodles are the result, ready to be tossed in any homemade sauce of your choice. Need some inspiration? Inspiralized has got you covered. Take a look, then grab a bowl and dig in, guilt free!
