Thank you for visiting. This giveaway has ended.

We all know salt is an essential nutrient, but too much of it can cause you to puff up like a toad frog. Not to mention, the more serious concern of high blood pressure that can lead to heart attacks and stroke. Moderation is important, but it’s difficult to control salt intake if we’re buying products cram packed with the stuff.

So when I was contacted about trying Boar’s Head lower sodium products as part of the Lower Sodium Challenge, I was willing to give it a try. Mainly because Boar’s Head deli products are our family’s favorite. It’s a bummer that it’s only available in a few local grocery stores, but it’s worth the extra distance to get good deli meat. Another reason to try some lower sodium options? Combined with the heat and maybe, just possibly, a little too much salt lately, my ring is a bit snug. And that doesn’t feel so good, ya know?

The low down? I was sent a $25 gift card to try out some of Boar’s Head lower sodium products. Around here Saturday is a big sandwich day, so I stocked up on some Boar’s Head lower sodium roast beef and a few other sandwich fixins for lunch. We made a simple roast beef sandwich with crispy lettuce, tomato, purple onion and some horseradish. Love me some horseradish y’all.

It was a tasty sandwich, no doubt. I could tell the roast beef was lower sodium, but then again, I wonder if I didn’t know it was lower sodium would I have been able to tell? The lower sodium content helped accentuate the flavor of the roast beef instead of covering it up with salt and other additives.

Next I’m planning on trying the lower sodium Boar’s Head oven roasted turkey and ham with my kids sandwiches. I’ll feel much better packing lunch boxes that contain less salt. And I really don’t think they’ll notice the difference.

Now, it’s your turn…
