Deli meats have a notoriously salty reputation, but Boar’s Head proves the rare exception. The roast beef from their all-natural line (which is hormone-, nitrate-, and preservative-free), manages to deliver a skimpy 140 milligrams of sodium per two-ounce serving. Better yet, it tastes like a Sunday supper roast that grandma baked from scratch. At a skinny 80 calories and two grams of fat per two ounces, it’s also a pretty lean-mean sandwich filling. The competition? Familiar deli beef packs 500 milligrams of sodium or more.
