What's for Lunch - Wed., 11/2

Seasoned Beef or Vegetarian Rice & Beans
Lettuce, Cheese, Salsa, Sour Cream Toppings
Hard or Soft Shell
Orange Rounds

I'm all for the vegetarian version but I have some concerns about the beef.

The beef used in these is  ground chuck -- it is all beef which means it does not contain fillers but it not necessarily of any particular quality. We do season it in-house with salt, chili powder, cumin, paprika, cayenne and black pepper.

Check out our posts on reasons to eat less meat particularly in school here and here.

The vegetarian version uses canned beans and brown rice.

The hard taco shells contain: whole grain corn, water, vegetable oil (one or more of the following: cottonseed oil, corn oil or palm oil), contains 2% or less of niacin, reduced iron, thiamine, mononitrate, riboflavin lime.
