One year ago a little post popped up on my Facebook page with a picture of what was reported to be the lightest lowest calorie bread alternative. A healthy low carb bread which was breaking into the health market. My ears pricked up and I was hooked. I contacted them, I had to, they were from my home town of Rochdale and I automatically felt a connection. What followed from thereon has been an incredible journey. I have seen Lo-Dough grow from a very small team to something even more vibrant, exciting, innovative and ground breaking.
After my initial contact, Rob and Ben from Lo-Dough very kindly sent me some samples. I never thought at that stage that I would explore my creative side over the next year and invent uses for this incredible product that can be a wrap, a pudding, a pizza, a pie, a cake, a biscuit and much much more. I now have many recipes on my blog to inspire.
The first thing I tried was a wrap. Lo-Dough as the guys openly state is like Marmite – you either love it or hate it. I sat in the middle. I wasn’t sure. It had so much potential though to make my diet healthier I had to do more with it. I made a pizza. Well, I can say I was honestly hooked. I think that was the moment I knew it’s potential. The lightbulb moment. And from that moment I have never looked back. My Instagram feed has been alight with ideas.
I have had some huge breakthroughs. The Festive Slice was massive
I’ve explored the boundaries of my mind and just when I think I can’t think of anything more to make with Lo-Dough, another idea pops up like Summer Pudding with a Chambourd JellyI have got to know how it tastes, how it performs, how it interacts with other food products, and how it behaves under different cooking methods. It made a delicious breakfast burger
Here’s my recreation of the famous Festive Pie
And a delicious Cherry Bakewell
I have also got to know the team when I took my mum along to meet them
This was the early days and although the team has grown it still has a family feel to it. These guys are down to earth, fun, honest, humble, open and absolute geniuses! I am proud to have followed this crazy mind blowing journey in parallel which for me has reignited my love of creating recipes. So all I have to do is say Thankyou to the team at Lo-Dough, please keep on creating this unique product which means so much to so many, whether on a voluntary or enforced diets or just those who are ditching the bread in favour of something far healthier!
Lots of love
