My husband just went ovo-lacto veg on January 1 & the one thing he says he misses is sandwiches made with lunchmeat. He doesn't have time to make complicated veggie sandwiches (avocado, sprouts, etc.) at work, so we're looking for a good lunchmeat alternative. Has anyone found a sliced "turkey" or "salami" product that is palatable?<br><br>
thanks for your time.

Yves salami is nice. Tofurkey sliced smoked "turkey" is pretty good too.<br><br>
You probably won't pile it on as you might have before, so add some sliced tomato, pickles, lettuce, etc. to make a nice sandwich.

I had such a bad experience the one time I tried Yves turkey that I haven't tried any others since. I really should, since I've only been veg a couple of months, and I know I'm going to get sick of taking PBJ to work if I keep doing it 3+ times per week.<br><br><br><br>

I think the Yves products taste like chemicals. BLECCHHH... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:"><br><br><br><br>
The redwood products aren't available in th US so I have no opinion on them.<br><br><br><br>
There are some frozen "Worthington" brand lunch slices that are <b>not</b> similar to lunch meats in taste or texture but still pretty tasty.<br><br><br><br>
Last but not least: Tofurky. I LOVE this stuff! All the "used-to-be-omnis" that I know have tried it and love it! Give it a chance - it's GOOD!

The "Smart Deli" turkey is pretty good, imo. I'm not sure about the salami, as I was never a fan of the real thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I like Tofurky as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"><br><br><br><br>
If he tries it plain, it might be a bit unusual tasting, but remember that it's going to be mixed in with bread and mustard and what have you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
