Voodle Time!

I was very excited this week when my new kitchen gadget arrived all the way from Hong Kong through the joys of the eBay :)
A multifunctional peeler is it's name and 99p was the price and it is AMAZING. I've been busy using it to make veggie noodles which I have named Voodles, clever, I know! ;)
For today's dinner I voodled a cucumber and carrots. Stir fried them with some sliced green cabbage and radishes, served with Chinese Salmon. It was yum. Tasted so fresh.

I've seen a lot through different social sites about this "clean eating" and thinking of giving it a go, has anyone tried it? What's your thoughts?

Syn FREE Microwaved Crisps ready in 5 minutes!

Yes you sure did read the title correctly. Hang out the flags and do a celebration wiggle for I have uncovered a little gem of a recipe!
My name is Lyndsey and I am a crispaholic. Ok maybe slight exageration but I do enjoy crunching on savoury snacks. :)
This is a fool proof recipe and will have you nibbling in no time!

You will need:
Potatoes
Your chosen flavouring. I chose to do 2 flavours- Salt & Black Pepper. Tikka.

Equipment:
Mandalin or super Sharp knife.
Skewers
Plastic container or bowl
Kitchen Towel
Microwave

Here we go:
1 - slice potatoes as thinly as you can using a knife or my blessing has been my mandalin (£9.99 from Argos)
2 - lay slices on top of some kitchen roll and pat dry.
3 - sprinkle potato slices with your chosen flavouring. I just did one side but feel free to do both for a bigger taste.
4 - thread slices onto a wooden skewer, making sure to leave a generous gap between each slice.
5 - place skewer over a plastic tub or bowl, making sure the potato slices are not touching the sides or bottom.
6 - pop in the Microwave! Now cooking times will vary with each Microwave so I recommend putting them in for a blast of 3 minutes then do 1 minute blasts until they are bubbly and crisp, they will turn a light brownish colour too. Just have a few exerimental goes and find what works best for you!
7 - leave to cool and slide off the skewer into a bowl! Job done!

And voila you should end up with some yummy crunchy, crispy and above all SYN FREE treats!

***I also experimented with dry lasagne sheets. I snapped them into shapes and laid ontop of baking papier, sprayed with frylite and sprinkled with seasoning. Baked them in the oven for about 7mins at 180degrees. Leave to cool and serve. These were ok, they would be great to serve with a dip or I have a syn free nacho that I will be posting about very soon!***

WHAT FLAVOUR WILL YOU BE TRYING?? I would love to hear!?

Chocolate Chilli Cake Bake - Slimming world style!

This is my most yummiest discovery so far. I have stayed away from making anything cakey with slimming world, due to me not enjoying the bitterness that sweetner leaves. So I adapted this recipe to include chilli flakes (being a lover of spice) but l also found it took the bitter taste away or more likely the spicyness masked it well :) either way they ended up like really yummy gooey brownies with a warming hint of chili!
And the best part..... Half syn a slice!
