Lo-Dough Cinnamon Swirl Kebabs

Most of my recipes start off with an idea whilst I am waking and planning what to do with my day. This morning I got quite excited about this one and couldn’t wait to make it. Success of failure – I never know until I taste it!

For the new visitors reading my blog posts for the first time let me tell you….I love Lo-Dough! It’s incredibly low in carbs and calories, gluten free, paleo, fat and sugar free and full of protein and fibre! It’s also a slimmers dream! You can have a wrap sized piece for just 39 calories, it’s filling, versatile and I love experimenting with it!

This mornings idea came to me after seeing a blog post about Cinnamon Bread. I love Cinnamon – especially those swirls which are covered in icing! But, they aren’t too healthy and on top of that I suffer from bloating with bread. The cogs in my brain started whirring and I came up with this idea!

So let’s see how you make Lo-Dough Cinnamon Swirl Kebabs!

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 pieces of Lo-Dough

1 tbsp ground Cinnamon

1 tbsp Sukrin Gold ( this can be found on Amazon)

1 tbsp granulated sweetener plus another Teaspoon

1 egg white

1 tbsp cold water

20 sprays butter frylight

2 tbsp Sweet Freedom Choc Pot

6 tbsp Muller Light Skinny Latte 0% fat yoghurt

2 tsp roasted chopped nuts

2 wooden skewers

Baking dish large enough to place skewers in

Method

Mix Cinnamon, Sukrin Gold, egg white, and 1 tbsp of sweetener together in a bowl to form a paste

Place Lo-Dough wraps on a large chopping board and spread equally with the Cinnamon paste

With a sharp knife cut Lo-Dough into six strips per piece I find this method works best than rolling the whole piece and then cutting through the Lo-Dough as the filling squirts out!

Roll each strip into a pinwheel and thread onto a skewer See below pic. The left

skewer was made using my recommended method hod and the right one was made by rolling up the whole piece and then slices my. It looks far neater on the left! That’s my one 😉

Mix together 1 tsp of sweetener with 20 sprays of butter frylight and a tbsp

of cold water to form a basting liquid. Baste the outside of the skewers with the liquid and place skewers into a baking dish with 2 tbsp of water in the bottom. Cover with tin foil and bake in a pre heated oven – Gas 5 for just 5 mins

Remove foil and bake for further 3-5 mins

Serving suggestion

Fresh raspberries, Muller Light Skinny Latte yoghurt, Sweet Freedom Choc Pot and a tsp of chopped roasted nuts

What’s Hypnosis Ninja?

So I figure when we arrive at a blog post to find out about something that intrigues us we ask three main questions

What’s Hypnosis Ninja?

That’s what I asked myself when I was very kindly accepted to trial their sessions. So Hypnosis Ninja have a selection of downloadable tracks which takes apx 20 mins to listen to and is tailored to your particular problem or addiction.

Is it expensive? Cut to the chase it’s just £9.99 per track! A fraction of a hypnotherapy session! Links at the bottom of this blog post.

Does it work? You listen to them as much as you can and if you have the same results as me you will notice subtle changes at first. They use hypnotherapy combined with New code NLP ( Neuro linguistic programming) to help reprogram your mind and thought processing. Hypnotherapy doesn’t always work for everyone but that can be partly to do with how you commit to it. It is however a tried and tested way to help people beat their demons. NLP simply described is like planting little seeds in your mind – a way of reprogramming your thought processes. Combining the two methods makes for a pretty powerful combination.

Ok so if you are reading this then you probably like me need some help. As a chocoholic and having had an odd relationship towards food with sporadic periods of binge eating where food has been in control I was excited to get to try these. I downloaded two tracks and yes,I can feel some change.

The two tracks I listened to are

  • Changing your relationship with food
  • Chocolate addiction

I have always had strong compulsions throughout my life in relationship to food and been a massive overeater. If I find something I like I buy 10 – not 1, it’s obsessive and it’s unhealthy.

If I find something I like I can’t stop eating it. Whether it be healthy or unhealthy but chances are it will be unhealthy !

Chocolate is also always a pull. Searching for the ultimate chocolate has ruled my thoughts for many hours in a day!

I want to keep this short so this is what I have noticed since listening to my Hypnosis Ninja downloads on my phone

  • I am not obsessing about chocolate
  • I know how to make chocolate and have all the ingredients to hand, yet even though I have had plenty of time on my hands I haven’t made any
  • I am eating healthy smaller portions
  • Food isn’t in the forefront of my mind all the time

This is after just spending 20 mins of listening to the downloads just a handful of times.

Things I have noticed today

  • I managed not to visit a cafe for cake and chocolate despite being right outside and it’s open doors calling me!
  • After a stressful day I also reached for healthy pieces of Chicken and didn’t obsess about chocolates
  • Despite the days events I threw a meal together instead of going for a takeaway!

Like anything else I don’t expect a miracle cure but am willing to try anything that will help and I have noticed changes that are encouraging !

The links to the tracks I have are below and are just £9.99 each.

Changing your relationship with food

Chocolate addiction

They also do a sleep one too! I do struggle to sleep sometimes so I may give this one a go!

Fall asleep fast!

Here is a stop smoking one too. I have never been a smoker but I know it’s so hard to quit!

Stop smoking

I am going to continue to listen to mine and at weak moments I will take myself away for a few mins to listen to my downloads on my road to a healthier me!
