Discussions about the sandwiches you eat are spoken of in louder voices when you express that you love turkey, tuna, avocado and all vegetable offerings on whole wheat or rye bread to let everyone know that you are at least attempting to eat healthy.

You are publicly applauded and then patted on the back.

Your friends loudly express the same, especially Veronica who is now working out 8 days a week and is determined to sculpt the new her.

Wait a minute, 8 days a week?

That is impressive.

Then you quietly walk to your favorite deli, heck maybe even Subway, wearing a cap because you have some mad cravings for some real deli meat. Not just one but in combination. Like Subway’s Hot Italian Spicy Sandwich.

Okay, for full transparency.

We love the sandwich. We’re crazy about it. We just don’t brag that we eat it in polite society.

Subway is very boisterous about it. At their site they exclaim, “Go ahead, spice up your life. Served on freshly baked bread and toasted to perfection, the Spicy Italian sandwich features spicy pepperoni, salami, and cheese. Add peppers, oil, vinegar or anything else your taste buds desire.”

Well it is time for you to wear your hat and sunglasses to purchase that mouth-watering Spicy Italian sandwich and to your dismay but not shock, guess who you see standing three people ahead of you?

It’s Veronica and she is just about to walk away with her Spicy Italian Sandwich on a white toasted bun with extra mayonnaise, mustard and pepperoncini.

Yummy, yummy.

You almost want to run ahead, take a bite out of her sandwich and out her before she gets to dessert which consists of two chocolate cookies, but you say nothing and not only keep your hat on, but add sunglasses too.

You let Veronica walk out without saying a word.

When it is your turn, you order the pastrami on Italian Herb and Cheese bread and hope that no one saw you.

This is a true story, only the names have been changed to protect the publicly boisterous about eating vegan and healthy sandwiches.

Oh, and working out too.

Look, if you crave pastrami and don’t want to be seen in public eating it, maybe you can make some at home.

There are books on that you know?

Pastrami is a product of Romanian origin usually made from beef brisket, and sometimes from lamb, or turkey.

The raw meat is brined, partially dried, seasoned with herbs and spices, then smoked and steamed.

Beef plate is the traditional cut of meat for making pastrami, although it is now common in the United States to see it made from beef brisket, beef round, and turkey. Like corned beef, pastrami was originally created as a way to preserve meat before refrigeration.

But you already knew all of that, right?

You could always read a book about it. There’s one on Amazon, of course, and it is to die for.

Yes, it is all in the title. Homemade Pastrami and To-Die-For Corned Beef Kindle Edition by David W. Cowles.

He smiles, “Here’s the fastest, easiest way to become a Deli Maven right in your own kitchen! Discover the fun of making your own delicious Pastrami, Corned Beef, Tongue, Rye Sandwich Bread, Dilly Deli Mustard, Cole Slaw, Salad Dressings, Navy Bean Soup, and other deli treasures. You’ll be delighted by this easy-to-use cookbook with simple step-by-step instructions, spiced and garnished with witty tips from an expert chef!”

See? Now you can keep your pastrami cravings secret.

We have an even better suggestion for you.

Think Corned Beef.

There is actually a vegan Corned Beef offering out there. There seems to be a vegan product for about everything else so why not Corned Beef?

Where did we first see it?

On Shark Tank of course.

At cnbc.com they share, “Mark Cuban as the “poster child” for vegan corned beef?

That’s what the billionaire Shark said on Sunday’s episode of “Shark Tank” on ABC.

Some might be skeptical of low-fat, 100-calorie plant-based deli meat. But not Cuban, who recently became a vegetarian and has said he is on the lookout for things he can eat.

“This is really good,” Cuban said after biting into a Mrs. Goldfarb’s Unreal Deli Corned Beef sandwich from founder Jenny Goldfarb, who was pitching her plant-based cold cut company.”

Vegan Corned Beef? That sound so, well, unreal.

What is Jenny’s story anyway?

Time for a real visit to her unreally nice website. At unrealdeli.com she educates, “My Great Grandpa, Morris Gross (middle), emigrated from Romania, started his work as a dishwasher, ultimately coming to own & operate several delis in NYC. The taste of NY deli meat has always been in my blood, but after moving to California in 2011, I took on a more vegetarian/vegan lifestyle.

Still, I never lost the taste for the delicious flavors of NY deli, so I hustled to develop and perfect a 100% plant-based (unreal) Corned Beef. Welcome to Mrs. Goldfarb’s Unreal Deli, where you can feast off the finest corned beef with all of the flavor & spice, made from the best stuff on earth!”

It looks absolutely delicious.

Apparently it tastes delicious too. Jenny just added a new big time partner.

As posted at businesswire.com they announce, “Starting November 15th, Denver-area Quiznos locations will offer plant-based eaters and curious carnivores alike the chance to try its new Plant-based Corned Beef sandwich for a limited time only. Featuring Mrs. Goldfarb’s Unreal Deli, this deli classic also includes Swiss cheese, pickles, sauerkraut and honey French dressing on a Quiznos bread of choice.

Mrs. Goldfarb’s Unreal Deli founder Jenny Goldfarb has experienced early success with her debut product, Unreal Corned Beef, which is a hit in select delis and grocers in Los Angeles and is now nationwide.”

We wish Unreal Deli tremendous success. Keeping an eye out for how this test works with Quiznos will be a top lunch priority.

So one day when we are sitting around with friends, in polite company, and boast about the healthy sandwiches that we eat, mostly vegan of course, now we can openly profess our love for vegan pastrami or Corned Beef with a smile.

Night outings to sandwich shops wearing a cap and sunglasses are no longer necessary.
