5 Delicious Low-Carb Ways to Enjoy Deli Meat
Thank you to McKenzie All Natural Artisan Deli for sponsoring this post. All views are my own.
Are you trying to eat cleaner this year? I know our family is! As a parent, it is my job to make sure my kiddos get the most nutritional bang for their buck. While I totally still let my kids have occasional treats I have started checking labels more so lately. The past 3 months have really opened my eyes to the harmful junk some brands load into our food.
Would you believe that 2 weeks ago I found cartilage and actual chicken bones in a “cheaper” brand of deli meat? Before I totally swore off the deli completely, I did my research.
I also learned the hard way that paying less does not produce better results. I quickly came to realize that when it comes to deli meats and cheeses I rather pay more for a quality product.
That is why I now will be buying premium deli meats from brands like McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli which is now available at Shaw’s.
I love that my daughter also shares the same name as this company (she spells it differently though), and their vast assortment of foods.

Since Shaw’s is one of my FAVORITE grocery stores I am actually very happy to have the option of such a quality brand at my fingertips.
Yes, McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli is slightly higher cost wise, but the product quality is superb! I recently bought a pound each of their Turkey Breast, Black Angus Roast Beef, and Ham off the Bone. My kids love sandwiches so these 3 lbs of meat would go FAST!
I myself am trying to eat more low-carb meals so I wanted to share these 5 Delicious Low-Carb Ways to Enjoy Deli Meat.
These low-carb deli meat lunches or snacks are so easy to prepare too which is a total win in my book. I can even prep them the night before, put them in an air-tight container and have lunch ready for my husband on the go. Sometimes even before the gym, we need a little protein fuel so a roll-up or two is ideal!
Let’s explore these 5 Delicious Low-Carb Ways to Enjoy Deli Meat
Antipasto Salad– I love this method because I typically already have fresh produce like cucumbers, romaine, and tomato on hand. There are so many combinations you can come up with making this a fun meal idea that can easily be prepped ahead of time.
Cheddar, Ham, & Apple Slices– Hello sweet and savory!
This combination goes together so perfectly and will help you stay fuller, longer thanks to all that lovely fiber in the apple. A deliciously tasty snack or lunch idea!
Meat & Cheese Roll Ups- Ever since I worked in a deli 11 years ago, this will forever be my favorite ways to enjoy deli meat & cheese. It is so simple and easy to do! Simply take a slice of deli meat. Add one slice of cheese, and roll it up. These also make perfect additions to any deli meat & cheese tray! This is perfect for those on the Keto diet!
Bun-less Romaine Sandwiches – Simply grab two pre-washed romaine leaves, cut them midway and make two “buns”.
Add your deli meats and cheeses to the center and enjoy!
Cucumber Roll Ups- These are so fun and easy! They remind me of sushi and make lunch time fun.
Carefully slice a cucumber thinly (lengthwise) You want the flesh to be pliable. Add a small piece of rolled up deli meat to the center, along with some cheese. Enjoy!
