For the hero, unlike our hamburgers, this "beef" is from Tyson and  is a USDA commodity product (although we were allowed to opt-out of the "pink slime" meat the USDA used to ship.)  The meatballs are processed, cooked and frozen by Tyson from commodity beef.  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.

The sauce is a Red Pack vitamin enhanced tomato sauce.  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.

The soup this week is lentil - one of our healthier verieties with 4g of fat and 360mg of sodium.  INGREDIENTS: Vegetable Stock (Water, Vegetable Base [Carrots, Tomatoes, Onions, Potatoes, Garlic, Sea Salt, Dextrose, Evaporated Cane Juice, Canola Oil, Spices, Turmeric]), Lentils, Tomatoes (Tomatoes and Tomato Juice, Sea Salt, Naturally Derived Citric Acid and Calcium Chloride), Onions, Carrots, Celery, Contains 2% or less of: Butter (Sweet Cream, Sea Salt), Corn Starch, Basil, Garlic, Nisin Preparation and Spices.

I don not think the pizza is whole grain. The pizza sauce (from Red Pack) ingredients are: Tomato concentrate (water, tomato paste), salt, citric acid, basil.

Caesar includes romaine lettuce, croutons and tomatoes.  Lots of other fresh fruits and vegetables.
