What’s for lunch?

Simple question but really it’s a loaded one with so many different options.

Do you pack a lunch to work?  Do you get take out?

Most days of the week, I have leftovers for lunch.  And most times leftovers are usually added to greens to make it a big ol’ salad.

But sometimes, I want something different. Sometimes I want a sandwich.  Sometimes I want a pretty salad.  Sometimes I want cereal. Cereal is a perfectly acceptable lunch or dinner, right? #RealTalk

Growing up, my mom would always buy meats and cheeses from the deli counter. Freshly sliced ham, turkey and cheddar cheese were staples for building the ultimate sandwich.  Over the years, I’ve strayed away from deli meats because I didn’t like the crazy amount of preservatives and questionable ingredients.

What exactly are “fillers?”  I don’t think I want to know.

Thankfully, more brands are realizing that consumers want less processed meats and cheeses.  One such brand is McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli. Made with no added growth hormones, antibiotics, or nitrates, McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli meats are gluten free and sourced from independent farms.  Available in turkey breast, uncured ham, uncured bacon, chicken breast and roast beef as well as some hormone free cheeses, there’s something for everyone.

I’m happy that McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli products are now available at my local Shaw’s deli counter.  Freshly shaved meats and cheeses available without weird ingredients. I love it!

I recently stopped at Shaw’s to pick up some groceries and swung by the deli counter for a pound of ham and turkey (my families favorites).

It was a cold, snowy day and I was in the mood for warm, comfort food.  I picked up a loaf of sourdough bread and promptly headed home to an easy lunch of panini’s and soup. A slice of cheese, a handful of spinach, avocado, tomatoes and sliced pickles on top of the ham and turkey hit the spot!

Not only does the meat taste great in a panini, it’s perfect in salads and for snacking all by itself.  My son loves to roll up a slice (or five) of ham to grab as a snack after school.

McKenize Natural Artisan Deli is a New England based company. It was founded in 1907 in Burlington, Vermont and is still there today. They distribute their delicious deli meat to almost all of Vermont, select New England and New York locations. I love that the company is so committed to quality and I love that all their meats are made right here in New England.

Be sure to check out McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli the next time you are at your local Shaw’s!

What makes a sandwich great to you?
