Spiralizer – My new kitchen tool!
I went to a really cool workshop that was a joint effort of the American Institute for Cancer Research and The Smith Center for Healing & The Arts. We learned a LOT of really amazing recipes and tips. One was a spiralized zucchini recipe, but it wasn’t one I made. It seemed like such a fun way to eat zucchini I wanted to try it at home. I bought a spiralizer from pampered chef when I hosted the fundraiser for Cancer Services. But I still wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it.
Enter…. the spiralizer class I attended at Southern Home and Kitchen! Not only was it delicious, but I got to try out their spiralizer. So fun!
I went home and spiralized pretty much anything I could!! And even my 5 year old was able to help, hooray!
I did beets, onions, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes. It was so easy and FAST! Here are some pics I posted on Facebook.
Do you use a spiralizer?? What are your favorite things to spiralize? I’m on the hunt for great recipes, so send them on and I’ll share them with readers!

The legacy of Jeff Tubaugh
Yesterday was the 5th anniversary of my friend, Jeff, transitioning from this earth to eternity. Jeff is the reason that I created CancerDietitian.com. He showed me that there were many facing cancer who desperately wanted reliable information on how to optimize their nutrition, get in shape and live as well as they could. I was privileged to walk alongside him in his journey. It gave me such an important experience and empathy for what many face after a diagnosis. The ups and downs, scans, surgeries, and finding ways to cope. I very much grieve his physical presence but even more I am grateful to carry a part of his legacy and passion through my work.
His family is amazing, his oldest daughter is in school to be a social worker and his youngest has an intense love for horses that she gets to enjoy on the “farm” he and his wife created. I have a beautiful golden retriever born on the farm 7 years ago! Here we are before doing a triathlon together, another shared passion!
Jeff’s impact on my life and many others will never be forgotten.

I am a 74 year old male moving forward after two cancer surgeries in the last 10 years. I recently went on a doctor supervised diet and lost 50 lbs. Feeling great! However, choosing the correct foods to maintain the weight loss is a challenge. Your blog was forwarded by my dearest daughter and I’m hoping to find good “clean” foods to help keep fit. Thank you for your good works.
