What's for Lunch - Thurs., 3/7

Our Chicken Burrito

Chicken, Brown Rice (Order Entree #1)
& Black Beans
Cup of Soup (Order Entree #2)
1/2 Cheese Quesadilla
Sweet Potato Puffs ~ Black Beans
Pears in Fruit Juice

 The brown rice is a whole grain but as previously discussed cannot be cooked in a way that minimizes the arsenic content.

The black beans are canned and the ingredients are "BLACK BEANS, WATER, SALT, AND CALCIUM CHLORIDE" with 140mg of sodium.

The chicken is from Tyson. It is described as "1/2" diced chicken meat" and as "boneless, skinless, and fully cooked." It is chicken breast.

I think we use Tyson's whole wheat tortillas. They have 4.5g of fat and 320mg of soidum. The ingredients are: Whole Wheat Flour, Water, Potato Starch with Monoglyceride, Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Contains one or more of the following: Cottonseed Oil, Soybean Oil) with Mono- and Diglycerides and/or Citric Acid, Honey Wheat Seasonong (Dextrose, Wheat Germ, Caramel Color, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Sucralose, Tricalcium Phosphate), contains 2% or less of the following: Vital Wheat Gluten, Salt, Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Calcium Acid Pyrophosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Dough Conditioners (Wheat Flour, Calcium Sulfate, Sorbic Acid, Fumaric Acid), Preservative (Sodium Propionate (Propionic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide (for pH adjustment), Water and Potassium Sorbate).
The soup is Italian Wedding Soup. It has 7g of fat (2.5g saturated) and a whopping 920mg of sodium, The ingredients are:  Chicken Stock (Water, Chicken Base [Chicken, Salt, Rendered Chicken Fat, Dextrose, Sugar, Natural Flavoring, Roast Chicken Flavor (Rendered Chicken Fat, Flavor, Safflower Oil) Chicken Broth, Turmeric], Chicken Flavor [Salt, Corn Syrup Solids, Natural Flavor (Chicken Powder, Chicken Fat), Yeast Extract, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Natural Tocopherols]), Water, Meatballs (Pork, Beef, Eggs, Bread Crumbs [Unbleached Wheat Flour, Salt, Yeast], Water, Romano Cheese [Sheep's Milk, Rennet, Salt], Dehydrated Onions, Corn Syrup Solids, Salt, Natural Flavor, Sodium Phosphate, Parsley, Spice), Spinach, Pasta (Wheat Flour, Water, Egg White, Niacin, Ferrous Sulfate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Contains 2% or less of: Chicken (Chicken, Water, Modified Food Starch, Salt, Sodium Phosphate), Modified Corn Starch, Olive Oil, Nisin Preparation, Garlic In Oil (Garlic, Soybean Oil, Water, Citric Acid [Acidifying Agent]) and Spices.

The quesadilla has Monterrey Jack cheese and the beans and tortilla described above.

And then we have The Return of the Tater Tot - a product we thought we had sent packing years ago.   This processed flash-fried potato product comes from McCain's - a product called Harvest Splendor Bites.  The ingredients would then be: Sweet Potatoes, Vegetable Oil (Contains One Or More Of The Following Oils: Canola, Soybean, Cottonseed, Sunflower, Corn). Contains 2% or less of Corn Starch - Modified, Dehydrated Potatoes, Dextrin, Maltodextrin, Molasses, Salt, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate Added To Maintain Natural Color, Sugar, Tapioca Starch - Modified, Xanthan Gum.  We do bake them but I don't know yet if they are pre-cooked (fried?) before being frozen and shipped to us.

Canned pears.
