Lean roast beef makes great lunchtime fare - far less fatty and fattening than hamburgers or deli meat cold cuts. Thinly sliced lean top round of beef is under 40 calories an ounce, while bologna and other deli meats are 85 and more. The round's fat content is only 5 percent while hamburgers often range up to 30 percent fat. French Dip Sandwiches: Hollow out hard rolls, or miniature French or Italian rolls, tossing out the bready center, and cutting the calories in half in the bargain!

For 85 years, shoppers at the Italian Market have been lining up outside Sarcone's to buy the bakery's fresh bread. But until about five years ago, Sarcone's customers had to take their bread home to make their own sandwiches. Now Sarcone grandson Anthony Bucci makes hot and cold hoagies just a few doors away. Deli owner Bucci has dedicated many of his subs to his heroes: his grandfather Sarcone, his Uncle Louie, his dad Sonny, his son Sonny Jr. - even Sinatra. But he named his favorite after himself: "The Booch.

Roast beef. What used to be America's favorite meal is now a rare treat. While we still love it, a host of factors have conspired to move it off our menus. Foremost is the not totally accurate perception that red meat is fattening. But health concerns are only part of it. Americans have become increasingly adventurous about food. That leads to a certain ambivalence about roast beef. It's like mashed potatoes and Great Aunt Emma: Yes, we love them but they're boring! The final coup: Roast beef has a big-bucks image and special occasion status - hard to fit in with today's fractured family life.

This one's a dilly The lunchtime crowd at Your Gourmet Kitchen, 114 E. Lancaster Ave. in Wayne, knows what they like, and the Roast Beef and Dill Havarti sandwich is it. When Devin Forte and Chuck Crocco bought Your Gourmet Kitchen less than two years ago, they decided not to change the menu too much. "We inherited [the Roast Beef and Dill Havarti] recipe from the previous owners, who actually got it from the owners before that," says Forte. It looks like this sandwich, which brings together Your Gourmet Kitchen-roasted roast beef, bitter radicchio, hot cherry peppers, horseradish sauce and the dill-Havarti cheese, is here to stay.

WHY IS IT that people don't eat meat during Lent? Is this such a sacrifice? Jesus gave up his life and died on a cross, yet people who follow a religious tradition feel they are being challenged by not eating roast beef? But they can eat fish, which I consider a treat! What makes not eating red meat but eating a lobster a sacrifice? A real sacrifice would be to show some true faith by dedicating your religious beliefs not only on the holidays, but throughout the entire year.

A Pennsauken meat-processing company illegally added water to cooked corned beef and roast beef products sold in 1986, a company corporate officer admitted yesterday. Beef International Corp., 7010 Central Highway, may have to pay up to a $100,000 fine when U.S. Magistrate Jerome B. Simandle sentences the company May 4 on the criminal charge of adulterating and misbranding meat. The admission, by corporate secretary John Clarke, came during a hearing before Simandle. Clarke entered the company's guilty plea to one count of selling adulterated and misbranded meat.

The Republican pig had a fat apple in his mouth and two rosy red cherries for eyes. The Democratic ox, on the other hand, was no ox at all. He was merely slices of roast beef. "I say deception, fraud," Mario Mele, Republican candidate for Montgomery County commissioner, said of the Democratic sleight of hand. "There's no truth in advertising" among Democrats, agreed his GOP running mate, Jon D. Fox. And so began the fall political campaign to lead the state's richest county.

WASHINGTON - An analysis of more than 33,000 cases of foodborne illness shows that ground beef and chicken have caused more hospitalizations than other meats. The report by the Center for Science in Public Interest says chicken nuggets, ham and sausage pose the lowest risk of foodborne illness. The group used government data on 1,700 outbreaks over 12 years to analyze salmonella, E. coli, and other pathogens that were definitively linked to a certain meat. CSPI categorized turkey and steak as "high risk" and deli meat, pork, roast beef and beef or pork barbecue as "medium risk.

What it is: A cheery restaurant with country charm in Swarthmore. What we like about it: The large, hearty sandwiches filled with oven-roasted turkey, roast beef or pork seasoned and roasted on the premises, and served on crusty Portuguese bread with a cookie on the side. Even the iced tea with a large slice of orange is delicious. The menu boasts more than 70 tempting sandwiches that bear names familiar to this college town. Try the Rutgers - oven-roasted turkey breast, lettuce, tomato and honey Dijon mustard on rustic bread ($6.49)

THIS WEEK, Philly will be invaded by fans from schools competing in the Frozen Four NCAA ice hockey championships that will be held tomorrow and Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. We'd like nothing better than to give them a real Philly experience. Send then home saying "yo" and "wudder. " There are, of course, the obvious places to visit: Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and the Rocky statue. But hey, a guy's gotta eat. We figure the fans from Boston College, North Dakota, Minnesota and Union College already know about Pat's and Geno's cheesesteak emporiums.

What to eat: Get your deli on at the "best meat on the street" truck. Hot corned beef, pastrami and brisket, grilled chicken, roast beef, turkey, tuna, Reubens, salads, matzo ball soup, knishes, kosher dogs, latkes. We could go on, but we're getting hungry. Suffice it to say, the menu is huge, as long as you're not on a low-carb diet. Details: In a city full of food trucks serving tacos and desserts - and, trust us, we have nothing against tacos and desserts, particularly in that order - Reuben on Rye is a nice change of pace.

SOME PEOPLE just seem to have a glow about them that draws you into an orbit of spiritual love. Willie Alma Harris had that glow. "She had a beautiful spirit," said her daughter Carrie Harris. "Once you saw her, you fell in love with her. She showed love and gave love. "You only had to see her once or twice. I would go into a supermarket, and if she wasn't with me, the clerks would want to know where she was. Everyone loved her. " Willie Alma Harris, who worked for a time in the garment industry but spent much of her career as a companion for the elderly, died Thursday of complications from a stroke.

THE NCAA Final Four consists of three teams seeded No. 2 or higher, and one seeded fourth. That said, you would think that among the more than five million brackets entered in CBSSports.com's tournament pool, a significant percentage would have a perfect Final Four. Think again. Apparently, a lot people go with the No. 1 seeds. According to the website, only 17,979 brackets - out of 5,136,592 - penciled in Ohio State (No. 2, East), Kansas (No. 2, Midwest), Kentucky (No. 1, South)
