I think Boars Head is one of the best. I generally try to stay away from processed meats, but dang, I miss a good hot dog.

Thanks for the info. I know that Publix cares the Boars Head. As far as Hot Dogs, my husband likes to use a hot dog sauce and cheese over a hot dog in a bun in the oven. I do not know if I should be having the sauce or not. lrd

I try to stay away from most "processed" foods and lunch meat certainly qualifies there. Check the nutrition labels for carb content and serving size (and sodium if that is an issue with you). If I were buying at the deli, I would select real turkey breast, roast beef or, maybe ham and stay away from bologna, olive loaf, seafood salad (made with the artificial crab/seafood that is higher in carbs than you'd expect) etc. For sandwiches, tuna is also a good option for us diabetics.

I try to avoid them because they are processed meats and can be high in sodium. However, if I must have them, I get them from a deli or read the label in the supermarket.

The best is Boars Head by far…followed by Dietz and Watson…I am from NYC..I know my deli…the best is actually at Katz's or Carnegie Deli..but if your NOT in NYC that won't help at all…Boars head is easier to find that Dietz and Watson..many deli's and supermarket chains carry it…When I first moved down to Louisiana I didn't eat lunch meat for 2 years because I couldn't find any good brands…then the Winn Dixie started carrying Boars Head..yippee!!!

There is a Dietz an Watson plant not far from my house. They bough t out Esskay Meats. We have both Dietz an Watson and Boars Head here in Maryland. I think Boars Head though good is higher in sodium than Dietz and Watson. However, I do love Boars Head Ham Bologna. I eat that at least once a year. Loved the Carnegie Deli when I visited NY.

I use smoked or baked lunch meats. I try to find them in the Deli, but often that is out of budget. So I choose from the lunch meat section in the grocery. I just read the labels for the carb counts per serving. I also like it sliced so I can use it to wrap up a pickle or something like that.

Not one of those that are marketed to be that way. I don't do well with any kind of sales or calling stuff. I just work from home because I don't have an office. I bought the software I needed to work at home as s freelance draftsman. I went to college for interior design and drafting and did it for years for other people. Now I do it for myself.
