What's for Lunch - Fri., 11/16

LEMON CHICKEN (Order Entree #1)
Fresh Chicken Breast with Hint-of-Lemon
Brown Rice Pilaf
Cup of Soup w/1/2 Quesadilla (Order Entree #2)
Local Broccoli, Fresh & Crisp! (Sauteed w/Garlic & Oil)
Orange Wedges

The chicken is a frozen USDA commodity via Tyson. We recently talked with the food service department about new advice from Consumer Reports that rice be rinsed multiple times and cooked in excess water to remove potentially high levels of arsenic. Unfortunately, our kitchens cannot handle this kind of preparation -- but you should at home.

The menu indicates the soups are vegetarian but the broccoli and cheese soup at least does contain chicken stock and rendered chicken fat. 

The quesadilla has Monterrey Jack cheese and canned black beans served in a flour tortilla - no whole grains. The tortillas are from Tyson and contain:  Bleached Enriched Wheat Flour (Flour, Malted Barley Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Contains one or more of the following: Cottonseed Oil, Soybean Oil), Mono- and Diglycerides, Contains 2% or less of the following: Salt, Baking Powder (Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Corn Starch, Monocalcium Phosphate), Fumaric Acid, Sodium Bicarbonate, Dough Conditioner (Wheat Flour, Calcium Sulfate, Sorbic Acid), Preservative (Sodium Propionate and Potassium Sorbate).  Sodium is 380mg. 5g of fat (1 of which is saturated).

The broccoli sounds terrific and is fresh - but I think it is from California.
