  • Lunch Meat and Bacon

    I don't know if anyone else has this issue, but lunch meat and bacon tear me up. I almost gave up on both of them all together until I found Hormel's uncured, nitrite, and preservative free lunch meats and bacon. I've tried both and all my problems disappeared.

    The Hormel bacon isn't anything special, but it does give you the option to have bacon again. Farmland brand is much better. There are other uncured, nitrite free bacons available, but so far I have only tried the two.

    The lunch meat is really tastey and comes in a fairly good variety. I can even have the ham lunch meat without problems!

    I get both of these at HEB Central Market. You can probably also find them at Whole Foods.

    These may or may not work out for you, but I thought I would share the info just in case. I seem to only have mild IC, so I'm pretty lucky.

    Now if I can find some nitrate free hotdogs that don't have paprika and onion, I'll be on a roll!

    Hormel has nitrate/nitrite, perservative free hotdogs!!!!
    I buy mine from Kroger's.


    Love the bacon.....I had resigned myself to the fact that I would never be able to eat bacon. But I discovered Hormel.....Yeah!

      I can eat the bacon and the lunch meat, I was surprised to find the sandwich meat at Walmart the other day. I have usually had to go to Lowe's foods to get it. Also, some deli meat doesn't have nitrates or nitrites in the. The market pantry brand at Kroger is fine for me to eat too.

          A patient recently told me she can eat Jenny-O brand hotdogs and sausage. Has anyone else tried that? Also, Whole Foods has a small meat section and sometimes I get things there. It is so far from my house though. :-(

            I'm ok with the Hormel Naturals Roast Beef and Oven Roasted Turkey also.
            I eat Jones sausage links, without problems, but I only eat one link as part of a meal to dilute it. The Jones sausage is in the freezer section.
            I buy all these things at Safeway.

              I'll have to check these hotdogs out! As long as there isn't onion in them, I should be able to tolerate them.

              I love fresh WF sausages! Especially the lamb and mint ones. Nom nom nom! They also sell some prepackaged apple and cinnamon sausages that don't cause too much trouble for me, but I can't eat too many because too much apple gives me trouble.

              Julie, my WFM is 30 mi away too. I keep hoping they will open one on the north side near me or my dad. For now I have to stick to HEB's counter part, Central Market.

                I can't seem to find that anywhere around here. There's a WF in Seattle.. that's maybe an hour and half away. But it'll be worth the trip if I can have lunch meat or bacon again. My sandwiches have consisted of cheese and mushrooms and maybe some lettuce.

                Every hotdog I find that's nitrate/nitrite free they go and put lactic acid or onion and paprika in it. Ugh!

                  Talk to your local grocery store to see if they will order the bacon and lunch meat for you. Sometimes you have to find the UPC code for the product before they will do it and sometimes they will do it for you. If they say you have to get the UPC first, try emailing Hormel.

                    Thanks, Saveena! Never thought of doing that! Not sure if the commissary would do that for me, but I bet Safeway probably would. I am desperate for some bacon and ham. I need my pig I wanted to make potato soup the other night.. but I used to make it with onions, bacon, and all sorts of yummy aged cheeses. I thought Why bother? lol Maybe I can try it soon just with different cheese and no onions.. and bacon. I'm like the dog on the beggin strips commercial. Gotta have my bacon.

                      HEB also has a ham from Hormel that comes in a chunk to slice yourself that is nitrate/nitrite free. I also buy nitrate/nitrite free hot dogs there.

                        What about "uncured" Salami, anybody tried that or just too dangerous?

                          If you decide to try it, I suggest just a bite or two at first.
