(Family Features) - Love the taste of deli food, but wondering how it fits into your dieting plans? The answer is, quite easily! The deli department of your supermarket offers some great-tasting fare that makes delicious, satisfying and nutritious meals without piling on fat and calories.

Boar's Head, makers of quality deli meats, cheeses and condiments, says it's easy to enjoy great deli taste and stick to a weight-loss program - especially one that encourages limiting calories, which most nutritionists agree is the most effective, longest lasting means of losing weight. A range of Boar's Head deli products are low in calories and fats, long on flavor and provide essential protein and nutrients, too. For instance, two ounces of most Boar's Head turkey, chicken and ham are just 60 calories each, and contain only one or two grams of fat. Served on whole-grain bread with sliced fresh vegetables or tossed in a salad, these quality deli meats easily fit into a healthy eating plan.

Simple Strategies for Healthful Eating

  • For easy, last-minute salads and additions to sandwiches and wraps, cut up vegetables and refrigerate them to use when needed.
  • Opt for leaner meats such as most Boar's Head varieties of ham, chicken, turkey and roast beef. Two ounces pack great taste and protein with limited fat and calories.
  • Stick with whole-grain breads such as whole wheat, spelt, rye and pumpernickel. These breads are full of nutrients and fiber.

Boar's Head premium products are available at select supermarkets and fine delicatessens. For more product information, visit >www.boarshead.com.
