Healthy Eating Made Tasty With Lo-dough and Their Cook Books

 I don't think that I've ever made a secret of the fact that I'm conscious of my weight, I strive to be healthy and this means watching what I eat.

In recent months I've taken to using My Fitness Pal, tracking both my calories and my macros. This means keeping a count of what fats, proteins and carbs I consume each day (sounds complicated, I promise it's not).

What's surprising is how many calories/macros are in the foods we eat, some foods that I though were healthy are most certainly not. So many things high in carbs - not the good kind either - making it difficult to stay on track sometimes.

Recently I was asked if I would like to review lo-dough, now this was a company I hadn't heard of but I was intrigued by both their food products and the handy recipe books that went alongside them.

Here's what their website has to say:

A convenient food innovation made entirely from just protein and fibre, it’s your answer to reducing calories and carbs in 100s of dishes.

By using Lo-Dough instead of traditional bread products, pizza, kebabs and burritos become dishes that fit into a balanced and nutritious diet.

Don’t believe it’s possible? We’ve tried and tested over 300 recipes on our website to show you how.

Lo-Dough is your secret weapon to feeling full and satisfied without loading up on excess calories or feeling bloated.

I was kindly sent a selection of their products including wraps, brownie mix, southern style coating and their all new cake bars. As well as both of their inspiring cook books.

My children were challenged to come up with some lunch ideas so we used their cook books for some inspiration.

Honestly I was surprised (in a good way) at the amount of meals that could be made with the wraps. From breakfasts, lunches and dinners, even yummy desserts. The possibilities seem to be endless because each idea inspires another new one.

After much deliberation my daughters decided on two things to make, pasties and wraps. I also made a pizza but I'll admit that I ate it before I remembered that I was meant to take a photo of it beforehand, oops.

The pasties had a filling of turkey sausages and cheese and the wraps were a classic tuna salad.

Both were simple to make, taking next to no time - even cooking takes minimal minutes.

Breakthrough low calorie, low carb, high fibre products from Lo-Dough.

Tasty reinvented.

There was one complaint about the pasties and that was that they were a tad dry. Rectified by putting a sauce or gravy with them. In the end their plates were left empty so I'd take that as a sign that they enjoyed what they ate.

We're actually looking forward to trying out more of the recipes, especially the desserts, the protein brownies sound divine. 

So far lo-dough has impressed me. Well worth a try, especially if you are on a low carb diet or happen to be gluten or dairy intolerant.
