I'm Dreaming of a Low-Carb Christmas
Top hacks to stay low carb during the festive season
Tired of turkey? Fear not, we have numerous ways you can indulge in festive feasts and keep the carbs to a minimum (even in line with your keto-diet). Christmas doesn’t have to mean carbs and it certainly doesn’t mean you have to struggle to stay on plan, just because the minced pies and pastries are flying around readily. Lo-Dough works as a bread and pastry alternative and it's a really unique way of eating the food you love without being weighed down by calories and carbs. It's virtually carb free (2.2g per piece) with the added bonus of being gluten-free, high in protein and fibre, and an amazing 39 calories per piece. Being on a low carb diet during the festive season is a walk in the park with Lo-Dough, as you will see from these amazing recipes.
Low-carb Christmas cookies (4.5g carbs, yes really!)
Oh yes, we're not joking around, Baking is right back on the agenda with Lo-Dough, as you can blitz it into breadcrumbs which make low-carb desserts and cookies possible... and we can say from first-hand experience that they taste delicious. Lo-Dough is virtually carb-free, meaning cookies can be super low carb too. In this case, you could even add a few cheeky chocolate chips here and there to make delicious low-carb festive snacks for your friends. Even a full cookie with the chocolate chips comes in at 4.5g carbs, meaning you can enjoy a classic sweet treat whilst staying on plan.
Lo-Dough sausage rolls make incredible festive snacks (10g carbs)
Lo-Dough works well with a rolling pin, and it's a great low-carb pastry alternative. What better time of year to make the most of that?
Pulled pork wrap - hearty winter lunch (8.5g carbs)

With Lo-Dough as your bread alternative, you can indulge in a well-filled wrap for just over 8g of carbs. With the weather chilly and the days short, there's nothing wrong with treating yourself to a lovely warm wrap.
