It's a new year. And so many of us are trying to fit food goals into our resolutions. Now, as I've said before, I don't make resolutions because I simply think they set us up to fail and then feel guilty. And as far as diet plans go, I live by the "all things in moderation" mantra. However, I too am always looking for ways to sneak healthier foods into our meals. No because we won't eat them if we know they are a tad better for us, but "sneak in" as far as taste goes. When something touches my tongue I don't want my first thought to be "Oh this must be the healthier version." So when I had the chance to try the new Boar's Head lower sodium deli meats and cheeses I jumped at the opportunity.
Boar's Head is a name synonymous with great tasting deli items, many of which I used for simple lunches. And now they have over 20 Lower Sodium products to choose from. I decided to work with The Branded Deluxe Ham, which is 42% less sodium and the White American Cheese which is 25% lower sodium. Plus, both are gluten free! The ham is also milk free, and is certified by the American Heart Association as a heart healthy food! From Bologna and Turkey to Provolone and Swiss, there is something for everyone in the lower sodium choices!
