The best low-calorie breakfasts are made with Lo-Dough
The slimming challenge is real, but with Lo-Dough you can indulge in a delicious traditional breakfast with a fraction of the calories. Lo-Dough combined with Eatlean Smoked Cheese creates the perfect breakfast accompaniment, ideal for a Sunday morning. By replacing toast/hash-browns with a pair of Lo-Dough fritters, you really do scale down the calorific impact of your breakfast - whilst actually upping the flavour with onion, herbs and smokey cheese. The smokey flavour of the cheese sits perfectly with all your breakfast favourites.
Why use Lo-Dough?
Lo-dough is a virtually carb-free pizza base, bread and pastry alternative that can also be blitzed down in a food processor or nutri-bullet to make a flour replacement for sweet and savoury dishes.
Low-fat breakfast tips
For the other ingredients, we found the easiest way to keep them out of a greasy pan is to oven-cook them all (egg aside) - bacon, sausages (choose a low-fat option), tomatoes and even a bowl of beans can be placed on a tray or rack and baked off while you get your fritters prepared and cooked. This not only makes the usual plate-spinning exercise of making a full breakfast much easier, but it also means no added fat for all you slimmers! Just remember to stir the beans!
By blitzing Lo-Dough to crumbs, you create a whole new ingredient - one that can provide new and tasty replacements for the calorific and carb-heavy bread/potato side dishes traditionally found alongside a cooked breakfast.
