Honey Baked Ham Weight Watcher Points and Nutrition Information

5 things to do with deli meat

  • Buy deli meat as close to the time you plan to use it as possible. Think Sunday supermarket shopping, not Friday.
  • Store it in an airtight plastic container or zip-close bag.
  • Eat it within five days (not a problem with these tasty ideas).

1. Sticks in Blankets

Wrap meat slices around cucumber, carrot, celery, or bell pepper spears—or go more exotic with jicama or bamboo shoots. These make a terrific one-handed desk lunch.

2. Italian Lettuce Wrap

Fill a lettuce leaf with sliced meat, giardiniera (a mix of pickled carrots, cauliflower, celery, peppers, and onion), and 1–2 Tbsp diced hard provolone or mozzarella. (Tip: Big, sturdy iceberg lettuce leaves do a great job containing the zesty filling.)

3. Chef’s Grain Bowl

Top cooked bulgur with roasted veggies and chopped deli meat. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar or your favorite low-fat vinaigrette.

4. Frittata

Fill this egg classic with your favorite chopped deli meat and vegetable combo (think turkey and broccoli, ham and asparagus, roast beef and spinach). Remove the frittata from the office fridge 15 minutes before you plan to eat—it tastes best at room temperature.

5. Sandwich Time

Mound sliced meat on your choice of bread, wrap, or sandwich thin. Then pile it high with lettuce, tomato, shredded cabbage, roasted peppers, and/or grilled veggies.

Choosing Sliced Ham

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, ham is one of the leanest types of pork available and is recommended in sandwiches instead of the more fatty options which include bologna and salami. The USDA advises you to choose a variety with low amounts of added salt.

Easy meals start here

Buy one pound sliced lean, low-sodium turkey, chicken, roast beef, or ham. At about three ounces per serving, you have plenty for five lunches. 

Gammon

Gammon is another form of ham and is an alternative to beef steaks or pork chops at dinner time. According to Weight Watchers, a medium-sized, lean gammon steak has 5 points. Beef steaks and pork chops also have 5 points.

Serve gammon with a medium-sized jacket potato and point-free vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and cabbage. The potato contains 2.5 points, so the total for your meal will be 7.5 points.

Ham Compared to Other Meats

For 1 point you can have a 25-g slice of chicken, turkey or beef. This is 10 g less than the amount of ham you are allowed for the same number of points. According to Weight Watchers, the values for wafer-thin ham, chicken and turkey are the same, at ½ point for 30 g.

It depends on the brand. Boars Head is usually the lowest in points. I think it’s 1 pt for 2oz of chicken or turkey

Meals with Ham

Make a ham and bean mix for a 5-point lunch or dinner. Place any no-point vegetables such as an onion, mushrooms, zucchini and peppers in a saucepan along with 1 tsp. of oil. Allow the vegetables to soften before adding a can of tomatoes, a small can of baked beans and two slices of ham cut into bite-sized pieces.

Weight Watchers Points in Ham

According to Weight Watchers, a medium slice of honey roast ham has 1 point. A medium slice is approximately 35 g and is what you would buy pre-packaged to put in your sandwiches from the supermarket.
