What's for Lunch - Tues., 1/25

Homemade Challah French
Toast w/Orange Rounds
Applegate Turkey Bacon
Carrot Crunchers
Cinnamon Applesauce

It's hard to recommend what our committee's nutritionist has called "cake for lunch" but it is popular. At least it comes with fresh fruit plus govt commodity applesauce. This time they have also added carrots.

At Sea Cliff, the french toast last month was served with a large portion of syrup. Clearly, the school lunch program cannot afford real maple syrup, and pretty much all artificial syrups are made with high fructose corn syrup - which we have talked about extensively here.  Our school has made great strides in getting HFCS out of a lot of foods but it is in this one.

The turkey bacon is by Applegate. It is nitrate-free. Here are the ingredients: Turkey (Turkey Used Never Administered Antibiotics, Growth Promotants or Animal By-products), Water, Sea Salt, Maple Sugar, Celery Juice, Onion Powder, Spices, Lactic Acid Starter Culture (not From Milk.)

It might be a good day to try the Alternate Entree for January.

This week's soup: White Bean Chili with Chicken

The alternate entree for January is a 1/2 wrap with the soup and sides. The wrap changes each day. Tuesdays are roast beef. Wraps have romaine lettuce, white flour tortilla and  Boar's Head meats.
