THIS ONE IS ASSEMBLED ON THE FLY FROM THE FRIDGE. ANOTHER PERFECT BARIATRIC SMALL MEAL!

I rolled up two slices of Boars Head Virginia Ham and plated them with mini sweet peppers that are each topped with a 1 teaspoon scoop of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip I make by blending an envelope of HVR Powder in a small container of ricotta in my food processor (then I put it back into the ricotta container), my favorite Vlassic Dill Gherkins and a giant ripe strawberry. Only protein and good carbs!

      Hi Sherry, this is a case where you want to read your labels. Boar’s Head meats in particular are minimally processed, with no artificial ingredients or nitrites in most of the varieties. You can enjoy deli meat, just seek a quality product.

      Hi Japhia, it’s short for Hidden Valley Ranch powdered salad dressing. It’s usually sold by the salad dressings and condiments, in a packet. -Alison

    Also, I try to stay out of the deli because of the processed foods. Here is my recipe for deli roast beef at 1/4 of the cost of deli meat. I buy a small EYE of ROUND ROAST. Salt, pepper, and any other spices you like (I use onion and garlic powder). Heat oven to 240 degrees. Place meat on a casserole on a rack, probe w/ an oven safe digital alarm thermometer set to 120 degrees. When alarm goes off remove from oven, tent lightly until cools off. Wrap and refrigerate overnight. Next day, slice paper thin. I do have a meat slicer, which is very handy for this. Cooking slowly allows for the meat to cook evenly throughout and retains the moisture. There you have fabulous roast beef that is good for you at a fraction of what you pay at the deli. I usually can pick of an eye of round on sale at my local supermarket for $2.97/lb vs $12.99/lb at the deli. It’s great on a plate with other things, wonderful as a wrapper for other goodies, and great in salads too. I usually grab a little 2 lb roast and it takes less than 90 minutes to cook. If I could figure out how to post a picture of the finished product, I would.
