What's for Lunch - Wed., 10/26
(with Slice Meatballs or Plain)
Salad Bar Veggie Sides
We do assemble these ourselves so they are not highly -processed -- but you should go with the plain version (see below) which has enough protein in the cheese. The pizza bagel does not indicate it is whole grain so it is likely not. For our various pizzas, we typically use the Red Pack vitamin enhanced tomato sauce. The sodium at 140mg is much lower than we previously used. Here are the ingredients: Tomato Concentrate (Water, Tomato Paste), Sugar, Soybean Oil, Potassium Chloride, Onion Powder, Salt, Citric Acid, Spice, Garlic Powder, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Black Pepper, Vitamin E (DL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate), Natural Flavor, Vitamin A (Retinol Palmitate). The cheese is a USDA commodity part skim mozzarella. Ingredients are cultured pasteurized milk, salt, enzymes. The sodium is 240mg/oz - I think we use 2 ounces.
The meatballs are processed, cooked and frozen by Tyson. Ingredients are: Ground beef (not more than 20% fat), water, bread crumbs (bleached wheat flour, salt, yeast, dextrose, and soybean oil), seasoning (salt, dehydrated onion, dehydrated celery, garlic powder, spices, soybean oil), tomato puree (tomatoes and citric acid), grated parmesan cheese [(cultured part-skim milk, salt and enzymes), cellulose powder, potassium sorbate], grated romano cheese made from cow's milk [(cultured pasteurized part-skim milk, salt and enzymes), cellulose powder, potassium sorbate]. They have 9g of fat (3 are saturated) and 450 mg of sodium. This is not generally the kind of ground beef you want to eat - check the posts labeled "Meatless Mondays".
Plus a fresh half banana and sides from the salad bar.
