This low-calorie steak wrap made with Lo-Dough is a real game-changer and is incredibly healthy too. If you love steak but you're watching the calories, this is the recipe for you.
Is there a meat-eater alive who can resist a perfectly cooked steak sandwich? Well, dieting meat-eaters - you no longer need to resist. This is our low calorie, low carb, high protein beauty and tastes every bit as good as it looks.
For a low-fat (slimming) diet, you can spray your steak with a low-cal oil and griddle it to keep the fat down. For a low carb, higher fat diet, you can finish your steak with plenty of butter (restaurant-style!). The choice is yours. Either way, swapping chips or traditional bread for Lo-Dough will keep the calories down!
Top Tip - For a perfect wrap, roll out your Lo-Dough flat before filling it.
A Low-Carb Recipe
Top tip: If you are on a Keto diet, switch the yoghurt for mayonnaise and maybe lose the onions to shave off a couple of carbs and up the fat.
The ketogenic diet (or keto diet) has been practised for more than nine decades and is based upon a solid understanding of physiology and nutrition science.
Rather than focusing on low-calorie meals, the keto diet is high-fat with a reasonable amount of protein. Food consumed on a keto diet is very rich and portion control will come naturally. This particular diet takes an entirely different approach to weight loss and improved fitness and nutrition.
