Suspicious that your bowl of pasta is the reason you have zero energy? It may be time to examine your relationship with processed carbs and try a more natural diet. “Deriving your carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables (even starchy kinds such as sweet potatoes and parsnips) is a smart way to keep satiated and energized,” says Ali Maffucci, founder of the hugely popular site Inspiralized

. Building your meals around produce rather than heavy carbs can also lead to clearer skin, weight loss, and a happier life, she adds.

It’s all about eating the right kind of carbs mixed with lots of protein and fiber, according to Maffucci. Armed with a spiral slicer, you can transform your favorite indulgent foods, like casseroles, into weight-loss aiding powerhouses. Check out Maffucci’s recipes—these recipes are designed to make the breakup with bread a lot easier. (If you're craving more, we have 12 Sensational Spiralized Veggie Recipes.)
