Review & Giveaway: Applegate natural deli meat

I was recently selected by Moms Meet {an awesome site for Mom groups to sample products} to review Applegate naturals deli meat, prior to being selected to review the deli meat, I had never tried any of their products! I didn't know what to expect flavor-wise, but as a person who prefers healthy eating I was very excited about the fact that Applegate deli meats are all "natural" meaning they are free of antibiotics and hormones; free of artificial ingredients or preservatives; and made from animals fed a vegetarian diet and are treated humanely. Our family is into eating healthy/organic/natural as much as we can. These days you never know what you are truly eating {it is scary}, so the fact that the meat is all natural was a huge to deal to me -- my son pretty much eats what I eat, I want him eating the best too!

We've tried quite a few different brands of pre-packaged deli meats, and so far I haven't found any that were good enough tasting to keep buying.  That is until I tried Applegate's deli meat! We chose to try the Smoked Turkey Breast, and from the moment we opened the packaged it was nothing but goodness {seriously the dogs came running for a piece as soon as I opened it}. The packaging actually made me happy too, the way it was bagged and pretty moist inside really savored the flavor, versus other brands I've tried that aren't moist and rather dry-tasting. The meat slices were sliced perfect for sandwiches, while not being too thin to enjoy alone. I sampled the smoked turkey breast on whole grain bread, with fresh tomatoes from our garden, salad, and mustard. From the first bite, it was love! It tasted oh so delicious that I even ate a slice or two on the side. Applegate's deli meat tasted as if we just had it freshly sliced right from the deli! As for calories, there isn't much to worry about here. The package is 7 oz and there are only 50 calories per 2 oz.

I'm not the only one who enjoyed it though, our 1 year old son also enjoyed some for lunch {just the slices} and let's just say even though he can't talk...judging by his empty plate I'd say it was pretty good. Here is a little did you know?! Applegate has been producing high quality hot dogs, bacon, and deli meats with only natural ingredients for more than 25 years now. I'm so excited that I got to try their products, I am pretty much their newest biggest fan. Infact when it comes to deli meat, I've found my new go-to brand. It makes a mom happy to find deli meats that are free of antibiotics, hormones, artificial ingredients and preservatives!

Applegate's natural deli meats are perfect for lunches! Whether it is at home, on a picnic, or even when you are packing lunch for the kids. You can feel safe sending this product in your kids lunchbox, knowing they are eating healthy! Their deli meat is perfect for an on the go mom, or working mom who doesn't want to waste her money and body on fast food -- instead pack a delicious natural deli meat sandwich! I personally paired my Applegate naturals smoked turkey breast sandwich with fruit, and my favorite PopChips. 

Alas the verdict is in, I've found a great brand and if you've never tried Applegate products before, they are definitely worth trying and once you get a taste you will ditch whatever brand you are currently using.
