Boar's Head Heart-Healthy Deli Meats

This post brought to you by Boar's Head. All opinions are 100% mine.


Heart disease is the nation's leading cause of death for both men and women. Taking care of your heart by eating well is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Boar’s Head offers dozens of certified heart-healthy deli meats including Maple Glazed Honey Coat Turkey Breast and Lemon Pepper Roasted Chicken Breast. I would love to try both of them! Use any of the heart-healthy meats to create good-for-your-heart recipes like this one.


Spaghetti squash makes it possible to eat "pasta" without the pasta! Scraped from the inside of the squash, mildly flavored vegetable strands look like thin, cooked spaghetti. Paired with vegetables and turkey, this is a meal in itself.

  1. I buy Boar's Head every weekend from the deli. Our favorite is the Tavern Ham!

  2. The spaghetti squash pasta recipe sounds delicious! I've only had sphaghetti squash once before, but I really would love to try cooking the squash and making my own dish like this one! I like the addition of the olive oil, seasonings, garlic and veggies! And then the Parmesan cheese! Yum! I will definitely put this recipe in my memories so I can try it out very soon! Thanks for sharing.

  3. i love Boar's Head Products. I am German and a lot of their products taste just like from a Butcher - Shop back in Germany :)

  4. Boar's Head is the only lunch meat that my family buys and eats! Not only are they extremely tasty, but they're the only company (that we know of anyway) that's gluten free :)

    Thank you for sharing a delicious sounding recipe!

  5. When I lived in NC, I used to buy boar's head from the deli at Lowe's Foods. Now that I am back in WV, I haven't found a place that sales their products. I do love the flavor of their meats.
