Hey Iron Clad Ben!
I've been following your progress. It sounds like you are doing really well! I'm very happy for you. I love this lifestyle and hope to perfect soon. I've had the glimpses of euphoria you talk about and know that it's possible to get there all the time. There are no shortcuts to perfect health so we just have to do our best and be patient to get there. I don't post much at 30Bad but my handle is Powee. I always feel weird about handles and for me they are usually just dumb jokes I have at the moment. I need a sweet hackers handle. The handle I use here is the name of a group I started in New Paltz to do some vegan activism. We do a radio show occasionally at Vassar College and promote Animal Day which we celebrate on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We've had a lot of our vegan idols on the program like Robert Cheeke, Ryan Wilson, Gary Francione, Will Tuttle, and others. I think you can here a lot of these interviews at our website, www.theveganinitiative.org
As for spiralizers, I have this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007Y ... B0007Y9WHQ
I can't say it's the best but I've never had another and I really like adding noodles to savory salads. I think it helps stay on the path to have good savory recipes if you are used to cooking and preparing awesome meals for yourself. You can't make super thin noodles with this one and you need to use wide zucchinis/cucumbers so no baby fruits. You also can't do carrot noodles which would be nice as they are generally too narrow. It's also awkward how you apply tension to it as you spiralize but it does work and you do get to enjoy noodles. Megan (Elizabeth) Mcdonnell endorses it on her website (easytoberaw.com) so that's how I found it. I've seen people make angel hair type noodles with a different spiralizer but not sure which one it is.
Anyway, thanks for keeping in touch and keep up the good work!
