I would not suggest at any point that lunch meat is Paleo, and, of course, neither is cheese. However, there comes a point when beggars can’t be choosers, and something that is good and Paleo is not always available. That’s when just okay and Paleoish will do.
These Natural Choice packets are something I occasionally fall back on. I stay away from the packs with cashews (I can’t stand them on their own, but I enjoy them ground and blended with other nuts) and the packs with pretzels. What I get is a lunch meat, a cheese and either dark chocolate covered almonds or dark chocolate covered blueberries.
If I’m eating one of these, I’m generally low on cash, blood sugar and time. They’re only about $1.50 in Walmart, and I can grab them and go on the road. They provide a little burst of “pick me up” between meals if I know it’s going to be a while before I can eat.
You can find these in the lunch meat section where the Lunchables and whatnot are.
