The turkey sandwich is a cold entree option (assuming you like turkey). The sliced turkey is a commodity provided by the government that we pay a manufacturer to process. The label on our turkey breast lists the following ingredients: turkey breast meat, turkey broth, salt, modified food starch, sugar, sodium phosphates, flavoring.
Steamed brown rice is good for you! In fact a new study is out linking brown rice to a reduction in risk for type 2 diabetes - read more at http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/06/15/eating-brown-rice-to-cut-diabetes-risk/.
The carrots are a USDA commodity. They are boiled in the can at a processor and contain salt and calcium chloride - 370 mg of salt.
Fresh oranges are good for you.
