It's so easy to beat up on this seemingly innocent little cold cut but it just has to be done. This is the prototype of what you should not be eating at lunch. That is, you should avoid bologna and while you're at it pretty much all cold cuts. The highly processed luncheon meats that are sold today are, for the most part, poor choices.
"But Dr. Tim," you might say. "A slice of bologna has only 87 calories." That's true, but about 72 of those are from fat and about a third of that innocent little slice is saturated fat. Pair this with a slice of American cheese and a glob of mayonnaise on white bread and you have what is wrong with the Western diet today. What Not to Eat: Lunch Edition
I have said for a long time that simple recipes are the best recipes. This is full of Spanish flavor with paprika, oregano, shrimps, olive oil and butter. Fantastic over Smoked Gouda Polenta or Cheesy Quinoa.
This is a fabulous riff on polenta (grits for those of us who live in the South). The savory sage really complements the smoky gouda.
