This is a perfect example of how switching bread and wraps for Lo-Dough gives you the ultimate freedom to eat the food you love, even in sunny barbecue season.
An American classic, which found it's way onto British menus years ago, but can now find it's way onto low-calorie menus too (thanks to Lo-Dough). You might have had a pulled pork sandwich before - but not one quite like this. By swapping the standard bun out for Lo-Dough, you can slash the calories and carbs and remain on plan with your diet.
What is a Lo-Dough wrap?
You can use leftovers from a Sunday roast, or roast the pork especially for this. You can even cook pork shoulder steaks on a BBQ - cook them slowly, over a few coals pushed to one side to keep them juicy and tender.
We dressed our pork in Blend Bros Smokey BBQ sauce but you can buy any sauce as you wish from your local supermarket (just watch for the sugars). Then we loaded up on full-fat coleslaw for a rich, creamy taste alongside the pork. Finally, we added some salad, a pinch of smoked paprika and wrapped it up in Lo-Dough, cutting the calories and carbs whilst boosting the fibre of this delicious dish.
Lo-Dough is 39 calories per wrap
It's true - your wrap is not only less than 40 calories, it's high in fibre, high in protein, and has just 2.2g of carbs (virtually carb free). It's so versatile as a product that you can have it as a pizza base, quiche outing, sandwich/toastie, or even blitz it up to make breadcrumbs for desserts.
