The mortadella dilemma

At lunch yesterday I had some very nice slices of mortadella cut through with pistachios. On other occasions I have enjoyed small pieces fried although these should come with a warning as to longer term heart problems/cholesterol levels.

However, if you buy a piece from your local butcher or deli then I often find it fatty and unpleasant and so it lurks in the fridge for a while before exiting the house.

What is the truth about mortadella?

  1. I think this is the truth about Mortadella.
    It is a guilty pleasure.So many foods we love are not the best for us so it leaves us with the dilemma - love it or leave it?
    The good news: mortadella is a good source of Protein and Selenium.The bad news, It is is high in Saturated Fat and Sodium.
    4% Carbs 74% Fats 22% Protein

    and this is the temptation!!!
