The best low-calorie and low-carb recipes for your Summer BBQ
Even though you're not going to have a BBQ every day this week, that would be our dream! Here are our favourite Lo-Dough recipes for the perfect BBQ spread.
Monday Dinner: Low Calorie BBQ Veggie Pizza
When the sun's out, there is nothing better than a good old barbecue however, many people forget the veg. Charred up veg are delicious, nutritious and perfect to serve alongside or instead of meat. If looking to keep your BBQ meals low-calorie and low-carb, replace any bread element of the meal with Lo-Dough. And if you find yourself with any leftovers, throw them on a pizza!
Tuesday Lunch: Low Carb Hot-Wings
These Lo-Dough coated wings will hit the spot and at 55g of protein, they also make the perfect post-workout snack too. These wings are baked until crispy rather than fried, which dramatically lowers the fat and calorie content - using Lo-Dough instead of regular breadcrumbs or a flour coating, lowers the carbs and calories further, as well as ensuring they are gluten-free.
Wednesday Lunch: Low Carb Brisket Sandwich
Brisket is a BBQ classic. Juicy, smokey, deeply flavoured beef, ready to be stuck between two slices of bread and devoured. But wait, what if you are on a low carb diet or keto diet (or just looking to cut a few calories for that matter)? Don't worry, Lo-Dough has the answer.
Thursday Side: Curried Low-Carb, Low-Cal Slaw
This lightly curried slaw is a flavour hit at Lo-Dough HQ. It will sit with meats, fish, kebabs, burgers - you name it. Perfect for a wrap (perhaps with sliced chicken or halloumi) or on the side of a savoury fish cake/fritter - you should definitely look at making your own slaw instead of buying the usual cheap mayo-drenched shop-bought stuff.
Friday Dinner: Low Cal Mixed BBQ Meat Pizza
Ok, 'leftover' BBQ meats might sound like a bit of a crazy concept... but try and keep a few scraps back for the next day if you can and make an amazing meat feast pizza, with an additional smokey edge. By making it on a Lo-Dough base, you'll slash the carbs, making this a healthy alternative and perfect for a low-carb or keto diet, as well as making it gluten free and surprisingly low-calorie.
Saturday Dessert: Low-Calorie Ice Cream Sandwich
If we told you that you could have an ice-cream sandwich for 111 calories, you think we were lying, yeah? Well, we are absolutely not - your on-plan ice cream sandwich prayers are answered! At just 11.2g of carbs and a massive 8.1g of fibre, this is an ice-cream sandwich, reinvented. This great hack for Lo-Dough brownies makes the perfect ice-cream sandwich and by adulterating your brownies with additional flavourings, you can tweak these summer treats to your heart's content.
Sunday Dinner: Salt & Pepper Prawns
By tweaking the Southern Style Coating with Chinese five-spice and a little fried chilli and spring onion, you can recreate this fantastic and moreish dish at home. By baking the prawns with the coating, you are saving countless calories and carbs and gaining plenty of gut-healthy fibre - all without compromising on taste! It's a no brainer really!
