Traditionally, the classic Italian deli sandwich is known for packing a lot of fat and a lot of calories. It’s also known for having a ton of fillers, artificial ingredients, and nitrites (used to preserve deli meat).
To make this a healthier version, keep deli meats under strict portion control (as indicated by the portions below) and choose deli meats that are free of artificial ingredients, fillers, and nitrites (like Applegate).
