What's for Lunch - Thurs., 1/26

Seasoned Beef w/ Hard or Soft Shell Corn Tortilla
Vegetarian Rice & Beans
Toppings for Both: Lettuce, Cheese, Salsa, Sour Cream
Fresh Grapes

The beef used in these is USDA commodity ground chunk -- 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.

The rice and beans version is a good choice - brown rice, canned black beans.

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