Deli meat is an inexpensive, convenient, and calorie efficient source of protein. Ham, turkey, roast beef, or whatever your preferred flavor, it?s yummy between two slices of bread, stuffed in a pita, chopped over a salad, or my personal favorite, wrapped around a pickle. No matter the mode of transportation to your mouth, a few slices offer a quick protein hit.
A 4 oz portion of turkey (about 4-5 slices) offers 24 grams protein for its 120 calories?pure protein! The downside is the nearly 30% RDA of sodium!!
