Durango, CO, November 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- If you’re not eating enough fiber, you’re at risk for a variety of health conditions, including metabolic syndrome and obesity, but there’s an easy way to increase your fiber intake: eat more vegetables.
Native Springs’ newest product, the Spiral Vegetable Slicer is a perfect tool to help you increase your vegetable intake. This vegetable slicer shreds pieces into two sizes: 2x3mm and 3.5x5mm. The stainless steel blades and plastic container are of food grade quality and are safe to wash in the dishwasher, so your preparation turns into quick cleanup. Even though it twists like a pencil sharpener, this item is still small enough to drop into a drawer in your kitchen when you’re not using it.
According to a study published by the American Journal of Medicine, American adults and youths tend to eat just 16.2 grams of fiber on a daily basis – this is less than a quarter of what men over 50 should ingest (50 grams), and just over half of what women should eat (30 grams). If it’s easy to prepare your vegetables, its’ probably more likely that you’ll begin to incorporate them into your meals and eat them more often.
If you want to entice picky eaters to munch on healthier fare, the spirals of julienned fruits and vegetables may be an easy sell. Sometimes its easier to eat smaller portions of fruits and vegetables, but how exciting are small cubes and slices of apples and other firm fruits? They’re really not. Would you rather bite into a hard apple or pick up a curly slice of an apple and pop it into your mouth? If you prefer the curly slices, the Spiralizer is a great option to make your food more fun.
To make gift giving even more affordable this holiday season, Hanson Creek is holding an extended Black Friday Sale through Saturday. During the sale, they will offer the spiral vegetable slicer at a 25 percent discount.
“We want to make it easy for people to purchase this eco-friendly product at a bargain price. In fact, we're so excited to jump into the spirit of 'Giving' for the Holidays that we're running this sale from Wednesday through Saturday,” said Zane McElroy, Publicity Director for the company.
If you’re starting your Christmas shopping and you have someone who loves to cook, the Spiralizer vegetable slicer is a great stocking stuffer.
