Lunch meat: Always have some on hand for a go-to snack

By Mike Thayer

So, the stomach is whining between meals, what do you do?

Reach for the pork rinds?  Nah, not in the mood for crunchy.

Slice up some cheese, or dish out some olives perhaps?  Nope, feeling a bit lazy today, need something 'to go' quick....

Grab about six slices of lunch meat!

I always have some on hand.  It's an easy grab, especially if you're on your way out the door or need to get back to the computer/desk.

Turkey is my favorite lunch meat to snack on.  Six slices gives you about 10 grams of protein to hold you until dinner and depending on the variety of turkey you choose, there's just one, maybe two grams in carbs.

There's just so much lunch meat variety out there, roast beef, smoked ham, chicken, bologna, etc., you can't get bored with it and most lunch meats carry very few carbs.

So if you're looking for a quick snack to tide you over until lunch or dinner, serve yourself up about six slices of lunch meat, perhaps put a little mustard on it, roll it up and go back to doing what you were doing.
