What's for Lunch - Tues., 1/29
BRUNCH FOR LUNCH
Cinnamon Challah French Toast (Order Entree #1)
Applegate® Turkey Bacon
Scrambled Egg & Cheese Wrap (Order Entree #2)
Sweet Potato Waffle Fries
Grab n’ Go Apple Slices
Say "No" to meal declared to be "cake" for lunch by our committee's nutritionist - basically white flour bread. The syrup is basically HFCS. They are looking for an affordable maple syrup but do not have one yet - but they will be limiting the serving size this year in the meantime. Actual lunch from our schools above. This meal has a lot of sugar, simple carbohydrates -- no whole grains.
The turkey bacon is by Applegate. 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.) They promote it as nitrate-free but this NYT article indicates otherwise - and cites the company saying their products have the same level (naturally) of cancer-causing nitrates as conventional brands. Read more about nitrates here.
I do not believe the wrap used for the egg and cheese is whole grain.
The waffle fries have 220 mg of sodium, 5g of fat and added sugar. The ingredients are: Sweet Potatoes, Vegetable Oil (Contains One Or More Of The Following Oils: Canola, Soybean, Cottonseed, Sunflower, Corn), Potato Starch - Modified. Contains 2% or less of Annatto (color), Baking Soda, Beta Carotene (color),Caramel (Color), Natural Flavors, Rice Flour, Salt, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate(Maintains Natural Color & Leavening), Sugar, Tapioca Dextrin, Xanthan Gum.
